Working on an annual report shot in Greenville and Farmville NC. Used a 6x6 scrim and 2 lights on the outdoor shots.

Where to begin......

Last few week have been crazy ........ Someone tried to break into the studio,broke the glass doors and put a hole in the brickwall and tried to come through the dry wall...Thank god for insurance ( Travlers ). My 4 year-old came down with pneumonia and I spent the night at Wake Med, spent 40 hours with no sleep and had 2 shoots ..... I'm still recovering...

field film

Ran film all day yesterday, everything looks great. My favorite from the shoot is the 4X5. The only concern the art director has is the background people might be going to soft and out of focus, might have a hard time making it past the legal department (might not look like adults). Glad I shot 2 1/4 @ f /16 as a back-up, everthing is sooo.... sharp.

Old School 4x5

Had to get the dust off the old 4x5 camera for a pharmaceutical shoot for an Asthma medication. They were looking for a shallow depth of field and the final size was 36x24. They almost had a real budget for the shoot. I rented a field at a local college for the shoot. We had five real models from Marilyn's Talent out of Greensboro. We had wind gust up to 35mph, we had a 6x6 butterfly up to help with camera shake. The 4x5 camera blew over when I switched to the 2 1/4 camera, Oh well.....
