Service Members – Day 19

Unfortunately, I have another soldier who’s biography is MIA!

U.S. Army Sgt. 1st Class Mark Schowalter gave me his business card almost two months ago, and of course I can not find it, so I’m just going to wing it like I did with Kelly-Ann.

Mark was my neighbor in the dorms at DINFOS. We ran into each other here and there, and I’m glad we managed to hang out for about 10 minutes while I grabbed this portrait.

This photo is the complete opposite of Mark, which is why I like it so much. During our session Mark was cutting up incessantly, and this was one of two serious looks I asked him to do.

Mark was minutes away from heading off to complete his final assignment, so I only had a moment to slap together this lighting setup. If I had to do it all over again I would have put in a rim light to better separate Mark from the black backdrop.

I had a lot of fun meeting and shooting Mark, and I hope that he gets a chance to see this blog post someday.
