Shooting a softbox portrait

Douglas Kirkland: Hi Owen! Owen Roizman: Hey Douglas! Douglas: Hey how are you? I am glad we can do this today. Owen: Oh yeah. Douglas: We have done once or twice before; Douglas: I've been in front of your lens I think a few times. So Owen, we are going to do a Polaroid. Turn away from me just a little, yeah. That's right, maybe a little more, yeah. That's cool. That's nice, nice, nice, nice, great! If you don't mind, try the opposite side, swing the other way. You know, by the way, it's interesting, I like this side of Owen, because you will see a different look on different people. Frequently, like I have with my part I think on my hair this way, and if I was on this side, it might not be as good as if I was on that side. But you don't have to tell your subject about that; just observe it. Say to yourself, "Which is the best side?" Don't get into a big conversation about it, because remember, your subject may be very nervous.

Nice, one, two, three...
