Any pointers? It will be two hours of a meeting, then headshots afterward.
whats your light setup?
indoors, or outdoors?
controlled background, or just as you find it.
how much time have you allotted for shooting.
Office conference room with large windows of natural light.
I'm not sure about the background for the headshots. I'll probably just find an area for that.
Time is two hours (during the meeting). Not sure how much time for the headshots though.
make sure to use the natural light to your advantage. However you need to get the necessary gels to help balance the natural light.
and remember. KISS...
Keep it simple stupid.
Most corporate peopel i have shot, are all rush rush rush. So map everything out before hand. Think of every possible problem you will run into and have atleast 2 solutions for each.
Ive recently been taking a play our of Jarvis' and McNallys playbook, and drawing out my lighting schemes. It really helps to get it out on paper.
Agree with everything said here.
I would plan out everything ahead, sketch out your lighting, and rehearse it.
Set it all up, bang off some check frames. Get your setup nailed down to the point where youre 100%
When you call the suits in, there must be absolutely NO fiddling with camera/lights/stands/etc.
Just talk to them, keep them interested, stay professional.
Don't rush, but shoot briskly, don't waste their time.
Leave a good corporate impression of being thoroughly competent, and you'll see the $$ come rolling in.
Thanks guys. You've either boosted my confidence or scared the shit out of me...I haven't decided.
I've got a friend that is going to take pictures of the rooms being used tonight for me to check out in advance.
do you do any off camera lighting at all?
Much easier than I expected. I'll post some pics tomorrow when I get home. It was a little intiminating though. All the CROs fro
the major energy companies here in Houston.
Here's a shot of the room I had to work with. Lots of natural light. Only problem I had was shooting the people with the windows to their back.
Two hours of shooting people in a meeting....
looks boring as fuck.
Yeah, I was running out of creativity after about 30 minutes. But they paid me for two hours so I had to at least look busy.
4 LCD's hanging and then some shitty ass fold out tables
