Earlier this year I was hired to capture some lifestyle photography in tandem with a video shoot, for Blue Lizard Australian Sunscreen. This was a unique photo shoot for me because I used only natural light and my approach was a bit more fast and loose than normal.
Our location was a gorgeous home in South Miami (I had actually photographed at this particular home once before) where we had many great background options, including a pool and a back yard with a tree house.
As a still photographer, working on a video production definitely presents unique challenges. I’m not the one choosing the shots, my camera angles are secondary to the video camera (sometimes I’m shooting over the cameraman’s shoulder), I often have to be cognizant of the clicking of my shutter to be sure it’s not being picked up by a mic and I can’t use flash. The limitations can be frustrating. However, the crew on this particular project was extremely easy to work with and since most of the shots were B-roll, I didn’t have to worry about being quite (Yay!).
