The biggest setback to shooting in public locations? PEOPLE! I’m out shooting engagement photos at this beautiful outdoor museum and while shooting the lovely couple on a bench along the path a tourist jokingly asks with a straight face,”what exhibit number is this?”. After the confusion cleared him and his group decided to treat my clients like they were part of the museum and had his wife take pics! Awkward or funny? I say a little bit of both! What say you?
Last night I got to work with Tryon Entertainment, an amazing production company and all I can say is "WOW". I shot BTS and in action their work at one of biggest weddings I've ever witnessed and their team gave me A LOT to shoot! Great costumes and acting for the Great Gatsby themed wedding climaxing with an amazing dance routine to end the night. I went there armed with my trusty Sony A7II, Zeiss 24-70, Tamron 15-30 and Sony 70-200 GM which were all put to great use in this amazing and challenging environment going back & forth between shooting natural light to capture all the colors created by the lighting effects and my on camera Sony HVL-F43M when I needed more speed to capture the action. After last night I'm not racking my brain on an A7 or A7R III because I definitely need another body if I get lucky enough to work with the amazing people at Tryon Entertainment again. I know it's been a while since my first post but I promise to be back sooner!
Once again I'll be attending press day for the 2018 NYIAS. Always a great time as on media day you have more opportunities to capture some amazing shots of amazing machines! Even if you can't get media day access, check it out! https://www.autoshowny.com/
