Back for some studio work, this time with Vince Moon to get some promotional shots for up coming performances. We discussed some ideas and I thought of a Bill Sykes character but with glitter….
Returning to the studio I had used before for the Clocktopus Cabaret and the Nova Halo shoots, a grey screen was used rather then a green one. The green screen from last time I found was highly reflective and trying to remove the green from skin turned out to be a nightmare.
I found that my Canon 6d Mkii has an issue with the third party flash. It would not trigger the flash when in live view mode so I had to look through the eye piece the whole time. Not such a bad issue but it does give you a blinding headache after 8 hours. Will have to think of a solution next time.
Having the flash working produced some realy crisp shots this time. Using the full 26 megapixel resolution I am able to crop in to this violent shot of Vince using his wrapped belt as a weapon.
As the recylce time of the flashes were down to a second we tried a sequce of Vince walking towards the camera and me shooting a number of shots. This way we could get a large number of action shots done in a short time. We used this method for the rest of the shoot and finished all we needed 30 minutes ahead of schedule!
In the end we shout around 350 sequence shots so Vince has a lot to choose from.
I must do more studio work in the future!
