This is a behind the scene capture during the Carolina De Santis production of Feria STS Beauty in Barcelona in 2013; a production video for promotion of the 2014 STS Beauty Barcelona event. It is always great pleasure and an adrenaline rush to be on set location during a running production of a big team. There so much creativeness and fast moving parts on a high pace … like a tight run ship sailing at light speed to a place where all the dots finally meet in a one place in time … ‘Action’.
Apart from everyone focused on nailing their job while dealing with the unexpected problems leaping out and hits of time pressure the team has to absorb, there are also great laughs along the way and an overwhelming joy when things come together. Such a feeling!
Gear wise, I bagged two cameras; a Nikon D800 + D600 with four lenses; 24-70, 50, 85 and a 15 fish eye for some ‘all in’ set shots. My little Lowepro ProRunner AW 200 bag was truly stuffed and the low profile of the bag meant i could move around easily with everything on me with ease.
I was happy with my DSLR cameras at the times but I wouldn’t be today for the same situation; , heavy, big, noisy flappy clucking mirror, no tilting screen … the mirrorless choices of today are far more appropriate for this sort of job.
Are you interested in knowing more? Would you like me to explain further on how to capture great photos at events? Don’t be shy and drop a line in the comments below, I am happy to share some bits!
Here is a selection of photos from the final 700 produced – ENJOY
