Jay-R At the Mic

Wednesday, July 25, 2007 Concept/Objective:

Assignment ConstructThe objective was to document a highly regarded auto racing driver during a visit to the client’s studios.


Knowing that we’d have limited time to do the images, we chose to be inside the studio during the interview.


Assignment ConstructOnce the driver arrived, we made a few images. The typical angle is the one where he’s smiling and looking down, but that’s just not a great perspective. Instead, choosing a much lower position looking upwards, as well as waiting for a gesture made for a much better image. Bouncing the strobe off the ceiling also made for a much softer-lit image.Assignment Construct


We had to deliver three images to the client after the event.

Final Analysis:

On his way out, we made a point of asking him to pause next to the client’s wall sign – which is a wall of brushed stainless steel, presenting it’s own challenges, but being a nice image to have, when done right.
