Behind the scenes: Lighting a portrait in Compton by David Honl
I recently shot a portrait of former rival gang members in Compton, California. They laid down their guns and started a catering business out of a small home kitchen, delivering homestyle meals to Compton neighborhoods and the surrounding communities of South Central Los Angeles.
Great guys with a dream coming to life (and their food is delicious!). Check out the short video for some background on what I used to get the shot.
