Originally, we hoped to shoot in LA after the last shoot but with recent rains the lakes dropped to 52 degrees. … This was a combination of stills and video, including some water footage with a 5D in a housing.
Unlike my fast shooting, bang off several variations in minutes, digital camera, I have to really decide which is the best angle; which is the best shot…. I much prefer to try a unique effect in the field then to wait until I’m back in the office in the dark on the computer.
I put together this lifestyle shoot with Shaka (the boxer) and his friends…. Sometimes I cast from Craigslist to get a look that is outside the commercial model/actor world.
We did the shots up in a warehouse gym in Mahopac, New York…. At one point I had him take some shots on the camera and I was afraid I was going to have the eyepiece imbedded in my face!
