From the man whose people at Haydon Construction build bridges to get us around more efficiently to the guys at Four Peaks Brewery who make that wonderful local brew that lifts your Kilt, the three-generation folks who have given you a place to rest your head at Arroyo Roble Best Western, Sedona, and who keep you cool in the heat Chas Roberts Air Conditioning and Plumbing, and numerous others, it's been an incredible way to pump some life into my latest work.
In many cases these gracious folks have been able to allow the time to light up environments with multiple strobe sets and provide enough time to work in multiple settings to give us a variety of looks for the final ads that would result.
Notable in the technique department is the Four Peaks shoot where, once again I made use of available "equipment" to accomplish my lighting goals.
|How to light large stainless steel tanks |
without taking over the brewery? Use
hidden surfaces of the tanks as giant
reflector panels, of course!
Okay it was early, so it took me a few minutes to realize that the solution was the tanks themselves. The solution was to bounce a large strobe off of the tanks out of frame in a couple of locations to produce tall strips of light that would reflected onto the sides of the tanks in the photograph. In the final image you can see the effect of one light reflected in the near tank, at left. Further back, another strobe is causing a reflection on the three tanks on the right.
What lighting problem?
