The Un-Road Trip

Comments Off

In April of 2009, Boaz set out on an Un-Road Trip. He’s criss-crossing the United States using every mode of transportation except for car. He’ll be traversing dozens of states by kayak, bicycle, dog sled, scooter, hot air balloon, horseback, segway, hang glider, fishing boat, crop duster, and whatever else he can find. He’ll be documenting the whole journey on his web site:

Boaz stopped by Milwaukee, and after his stay at The Pfister Hotel he managed to meet up with Dana, our Public Relations Specialist, and got to ride the InterContinental Delivery Tricycle we recently designed.

Small, inexpensive speedlights (which typically mount on top of the camera) are used on lightstands, or placed on the ground, or held by an assistant, to get some pretty amazing lighting effects.

Chrome Is Cool

Chrome Engine by Generac. Shooting Chrome is always a challenge. Last week I was given two engines to shoot. The direction was simple: we need a cool shot straight on.

With lots of cleaning, lots of white boards and NO Photoshop work… this is what I came up with. It was a fun one. Oh yeah, there’s also a mirror involved.
