Here is a follow-up blog about the making of my January 2013 Promo Piece.
[below is the previous blog about going to Strawn Texas]
THIS is my January 2013 Promo Piece.
Lighting Diagram of The Robinson School House:
My Nikon D4 settings were: ISO 50, f/2 & 1/160 with a 35mm lens.
Outside was one of my assistants holding the light so that the wind wouldn’t blow it over. ; )
It was a cold grey day, and I wanted to emulate afternoon light, so I used 2 full CTO (orange) gels on a dynalite (jack rabbit) (at half power out of 400 watts), powered by a Vagabond Mini Lithium.
Inside, I used a medium softbox with a velcro grid to control my main light (dynalite – jack rabbit) (at 1/8th power out of 400 watts) – with another Vagabond Mini Lithium.
Side note: I often have to use ND filters even though these 400 watt lights can be dialed down to 1/8th power.
We had lunch at Mary’s Cafe and arrived at the school house around 2pm. A little over an hour later we were done and ready to head back east.
Already planning my NEXT Promo Piece.
