A Most Difficult Shoot (1)


Recommended Posts

I was recently invited to a training Evening with the Lincolnshire Fire and Rescue Service, the 8 photos below where taken at this event.

The lighting was a challenge as I prefer to use the 'ambient' light rather than spoil the scene using flash.

Given free rein to go where I chose, hard hat, safety boots and a Hi Viz vest was a must. 

I'll post another set at some point that shows mainly the people rather than the vehicles as here.

All comments welcome.

A little fill flash would help sometimes, even the pop up on the camera ( If it has one lol )

Also take a tripod and do some timed long exposure where the engines are still but people give motion blur, a great effect to show movement in the images

Hi Steve - I used a tripod for most of these shots, flash wasn't really an option with all the reflective clothing and usually ends up giving more problems than it solves. Having said that I wished I had taken my ring flash which can be left 'on'  at a lower setting.  I used a Sigma Art 18-35mm f/1.8 (pictures shot around f/2.8) which handled the dark/light really well (trust me it was a lot darker than it appears).

I hate flash most of the time, hence the timed exposure idea, I ( on Here I Think ) have an image where I just used a timed exposure on a busy bridge in London, a mate had to stand still for about a minute, sounds easy lol, but not.. It turned out so cool, hence the idea, long exposure with everyone in High Vis, could be cool 🙂

What a good set this is especially relating to the  exposure.....  what a challenge this must have been Colin ...hats off to you for these excellent results   ....Hard to pick a favourite  but  for  atmosphere and composition I really like #3 and # 1  . Please post any more you have and  an idea of your settings and lens would be appreciated ....
