This shot is straight from camera, no editing. I rarely feel that any shot is perfect out of camera and requires no touching of any kind. But, occasionally I’m proven wrong. That’s the case with this shot of Kamal from our shoot on Wednesday.
I spent most of the day with Kamal shooting and catching up on life. We shot probably five or six different looks – most of them specifically designed for some upcoming projects he’s working on. However, I’m going to share the dressier photos we did.
This image only took two tries to create. I considered removing the lines from the ground… but then decided that they really don’t detract from the image too much… do they?
Working with Kamal is always fun. We met through friends over a year ago, but always have trouble matching up our schedules to do a shoot. This time around, however, I think we created some really great stuff. The themed shoot we did I will be able to share with you guys in a few weeks.
But this series was both powerful images and fun images (like the jumping one above).
One light was used for moodier, dramatic lighting. Of course now I’m wishing I used a second one at 1/4 for a real slight rim light/hair light… but, there’s always next time.
Tomorrow I’ll be shooting in Santa Monica with the stuntman “Crazy” Mike Gaboff. Should be a great time, and I’m sure we’ll be creating some really incredible images… think fire, flips, stunts, girls, etc… You get what I’m sayin..
