Shoot 5 – Studio Shoot


Set Up

– Initially set up too close; projection very small

– Moved projector onto trolley so it was same height as Bhakti

– Turning lights off made huge difference to quality of projection

– Meant Bhakti not so well lit

– Definitely preferred this; much more interesting visually


_G9A3360 _G9A3361


– Shot majority with ES Macro 180mm

– Really shallow depth of field

– Macro allowed me to get big close ups

– Fish eye had to be rejected as too gimmicky and too much in shot

– Surprised how much I liked mid shots from standard 7D lens

General Visuals

– Stronger shapes = less confusing composition

– Lots of contrast in light and dark worked best

– Firework / other night shots create very mysterious/intriguing visuals

– Subject disappears in and out of shot with change in composition

– Contrast in movement of subject compared to shot creates more interest

Eg Bhakti standing stock still when shots edited to faster pace

– Projection of pre-layered images can be too busy but very dynamic visually
