Shoot Set Up: Editorial/Fashion

Okay, so we you know, this is the story of location work. You walk in and think, what a cool place, And then you start to wrestle it onto pixels, and then all of a sudden, it's still cool, but it's harder than you want it to be. So I spent a lot of time with Ryan because, you know, I get very determined, and so we ended up with a nice photograph, and the second picture would have been kind of cool, but we're gonna finish it because, um, poor Carina has been waiting all day long having a round of applause for Karina. So, yes. So you don't keep a lady waiting too much like that. So that's not a good idea. So we're gonna plunge right in. It's going to be a different style of light. Okay for Karina that I brought for Ryan, and I've been thinking about it. I don't know, this is gonna work, but we're going to give it a try. I'd like to get her to sit on the bar and use the shape of the bar. Okay. So first things first, I'm gonna ask her to remain comfortable for a minute. or two, actually, c...

ould we get her a chair, please? So she is comfortable. Can we clean out the chair with the A clamps? Let's clean that away. My camera angle is gonna live right down there. Let's bring this Octa down there, please. All right, um, I'm gonna try pot this, guys. What? Lindsay ripping Joe. I was hoping for 105 So let's have 105 out. But let's start with 35. 1.4, please. So I'm gonna go into my mode here is going to be aperture priority. Okay, so you see eso 400. Let's start there. All right. So All right. So I know I asked for a tripod. I'm gonna take the camera off the tripod, just for a minute or so until I maybe find something that sort of works. The it sort of depends on how much space Karina occupies, you know, because you think Oh, this a beautiful scene. But, you know, um, then you put your subject in and you can't see the scene anymore, so I'm gonna have to make adjustments in terms of lens and stuff like that. So let's get Karina in here.
