Caroline White is a Los Angeles based portrait photographer whose new series 'Quarantine Through Glass' captures the experiences of residents in their homes in East L.A. during the Covid-19 crisis.
"I can shoot socially distant but at the height of quarantine I wanted to be extra careful and I get sad if I go too long without shooting, so I asked a couple of neighbors if they’d like a window shoot and everyone was very responsive and happy - I think because they already knew me and my work", states Caroline.
Of course this form of shooting comes with its own technical challenges that she knows how to overcome. Step stools, light blockers with stands, lights, extension cords and even a drone are some tools Caroline uses regularly.
Another big part is the planning itself, "Window shoots are always scheduled and sometimes the clients give me a virtual tour. I'm trying to gauge the best time of day for the shooting, but I've shot a few people several times in different lights."
