Taking Control of the Light
Studio photographers own their light. They set up as they wish. Me, well I had to rent. Many thanks to the good folks at Wooden Nickel where I rented a small Arri light kit. The “baby kit”. 1 light (1000 watt) with barn doors, scrims (light reducing filters in 1 stop increments) and 2 more lights at 650 watts. We used it all.
After shooting the fires of manufacturing so many times I wanted to step it up, “own” the light so to speak. With crucial assistance from Kevin we got underway. Kudos to him for the setup. Me…. Well I gave him the camera settings from past experience and coordinated composition. And BTW I’m the guy in the silver suit. That was pretty interesting, I have renewed respect for Jose and Robert who work that furnace a couple hours a day at least.
