Tree King recent project
This is one of our recent projects, we photographed this piece of equipment dangling from a crane in an industrial shop in Clairmont Alberta.
This job was challenging not only because of the size of the item being photographed but also because of the variety of shape and textures of black parts on it.
Black can be challenging, if you expose black the same way you expose the rest of the shot, it becomes black with out shape or texture. That does not tell the viewer anything about the item being photographed.
To photograph an item like this, every different black surface should be lit separately so that controlled reflections are created and the components come to life. Beams show their surface texture, cylinders have highlight and shadow so they look round, and chains have highlights to show their shape and texture.
Industrial work comes with challenges but I do love it.
