The Other Matt Roth The Photographer

So, yeah… there’s another photographer named Matt Roth out there. Professionally, he goes by Matthew Aaron Roth, but to all his friends he’s Matt Roth. Luckily we shoot different subjects. I’m more of a portrait & editorial guy, and he’s an “adventure” photographer. Our only overlap is

Scary Scary Self Portrait

New Grid Test Shots

I FINALLY got some new mods for my Paul C. Buff Einstein — an 11″ Long Throw Reflector and two grids. I went from having only a mini-sun to also shaping my light with something highly directional.

Self Portrait… ish.

Self Portrait in Griffin, GA

Okay. I’m a little narcissistic. I have a lot of pride …in how I light stuff. But I wanna get better. Admittedly, I have a few weaknesses. One of which is making a scene not look …uh, lit. weird, right? I also have a harder time lighting indoors than I do blasting my subjects in front […]
