SRT Shoot April 2012 – why I love cars and models
Saturday was, by all accounts, the best car shoot of my life. True, it was also the first car shoot containing all of the elements of a commercial production – beautiful rides, a beautiful model, a nice location, a makeup artist, assistants (the car owners), and lots of lighting.
Three strobes were used – two Bowens Gemini 500R lights on a small TravelPak and a Canon 580EX II on a stand, used as a kicker. The Geminis were triggered via a Pulsar radio stacked atop a PocketWizard MiniTT1 for the 580. A softbox was fixed on the main light, with a reflective brolly attached the secondary.
Katie was a dream – so professional, laid back, and friendly. She was one of the guys, talking cars yet all the time being prepared for the next shot.
