It’s Mud Sweat & Gears Again!

Wednesday, February 16th, 2011

I just spent another day underground at Coleman Mine documenting the mining process for their photo archives and it’s quite the change of pace of maternity, dog’s & baby sessions.  I really enjoy my commercial photography gigs as it pushes my abilities as a photographer to create something unique and high impact out of something that is mundane and “cold”.  Lighting is always an issue when you are thousands of feet underground and I thought my 5 strobes would be enough (and it was), but I know I could do even better with a just a few more lights………..oh well, next time.   The real trick is to get your lights in the right places to illuminate the scene and subjects, but have them out of frame so you don’t see them.  Sometimes this is tricky.

I will be posting more of my commercial images in the next few weeks as I will be underground several more times in the next few months.
