Weekly Wrap-up, April 8-12th
Whew. What a week. We’ve been working hard these past five days, waking up well before the sun and working late into the evenings down here in San Antonio, Texas – our home base this week and for most of April and May as we shoot an unprecedented tourism project the city. From tiny little flowers to giant orca whales, it’s really feel like we’ve shot it all this week. Want to see more? Keep reading for behind the scenes of our adventures these past few days…
What comes with an intense week of shooting? A ton of grip – in this case a very large and very soft 12×12′ silk that we were using to diffuse the sun on our subjects during an outdoor shoot. Many thanks to our local crew down in Texas for all of their help getting our grip sorted.
This week was also pretty special because we were granted the incredible opportunity of shooting some of the Shamu family at Sea World. A day at the office is never typical for us, but this might be up there in the top ten…
It might seem like animals (both alive and not quite-so-alive) are the theme of this week, but I can guarantee you that they’ll only be small pieces of a much larger and more interesting puzzle.
Back to live animals – Chris made sure to make a very real connection with some of our subjects this week, in this case a king penguin from Antarctica.
And we even managed to schedule in some quality bowling time this week. If the whole photography thing doesn’t work out for us, maybe a Crisman Photo bowling team is in the works…
As far as what you may have missed this week on the internet:
Last but not leastâ€¦
What a lazy bum – just lounging around in an inner-tube while everyone else is working hard.
