Interesting Shoot This Week

One of the fun things about being a photographer is the variety of clients that we have. One day we may be shooting a cell phone in the studio, the next day a shock absorber for a car and the next day a pretty model wearing sports clothes. Each assignment is different and requires different tools and methods to accomplish what the client would like.

This week was no different. We shot a steel 'gusher' mold that was about the size of a loaf of bread and weighed 50 pounds. Then we did a close up of a part on the mold that was no larger than 1/8 of an inch. We also had 18 views of a new cell phone, some gun leather products and a few items that I don't know what they were.

Then we had the big stuff:
Our client makes high end equipment for recording studios. The 'woofer' in the middle was three foot by three foot and weighed 300 pounds. So we started out this shoot wrestling this block. The fun and interesting part was the client wanted the lights to be illuminated on the front of the woofer and monitors. In order to do that we had to hook all of them up to a computer and send an audio signal. By the time we had enough lights illuminated the walls were vibrating in the studio. Pictures were rattling and I swear I loosened a filling in my back molar.

But we got the shot and I'm sure our new neighbors were wondering if anyone else felt the 'earthquake' they had felt.

And people think we are in this business for the money!
