The day's shooting we had planned for last Sunday really didn't turn out the way we wanted. That's the way it is sometimes, especially when you are working with locations where you just don't really have any control over what you'll find when you get there.
Such was the case last weekend, when we turned up at the first location - an old hotel, abandoned 13 years ago and which I had recently shot at - to find the city workmen in the final throes of boarding it all up.
We quickly formed a backup plan, moved to some alternate locations about 40kms away and managed to at least salvage our day a little.
The snow blizzard was a very welcome surprise.... and although I didn't get any shots then, I quickly lit a scene for my student which turned out as an amazing shot.
All the scenes we shot this day, about four in all, very quickly lit by me and they all worked great. Very happy with the gear I have now which, though not extravagant, is very capable and superbly flexible in the right hands.
Gear on this shot?
My student's Nikon D800E [I get mine soon... and I can't wait]
Nikon 24-70mm f/2.8G
Nikon SB800 bare, lighting Natsuki from the front
2x Yongnuo 560ii speedlights fired from positions on the right and left of the tunnel, halfway up each side, to backlight and throw some light up the top of the tunnel.
