Breaking news: William Morton of Morton Visuals was involved in a courtroom shooting yesterday. Morton took aim at local attorney Jim Miller Jr., and created a series of new images designed to highlight photography lighting on location for an upcoming class. This wasn’t the first time that Morton had shot Miller – his previous portrait is featured on the Jim Miller for Judge website.
With a scant two hours of access to a county courthouse courtroom, photographer William Morton worked with the aid of Assistants Kevin Young and Drew Wyeth to create three setups to utilize for the 30-minute photo session. This proved to be no small challenge. If ladies think the lighting in department store changing rooms is unflattering, just wait until you examine the lighting in a courtroom! Morton analyzed the ambient lighting and then matched his main light, effectively neutralizing the color cast. Then he switched up to some slightly more dramatic lighting for our easygoing legal model.
To emphasize the intellectual aspects of the legal business, William brought in the warmth of dozens of law books as a background – proving that lawyers do have the backing of precedents. The 3rd image has been ordered sealed, until Miller wins his seat on the bench of the Superior Court.
