Seeing as quite a few people ask what I carry in my bag and how I shoot, I thought I’d make a little behind the lens video from a photo shoot. Nothing too tech just a friendly look at what I do and why.

Here’s the video, with a special thanks to Howard Colin for the filming and editing the behind the lens video. Enjoy!

Here’s the resulting photo as seen in the video. Over powering the ambient light with flash produced a very detailed dramatic sky. The image was processed through Lightroom. I did Photoshop out the lamp post behind Jimbo, just because it was quite a distracting element within the frame. It’s a bit of a shame I couldn’t move more into the middle of road and frame between the trees more.
