About the image
Intense portrait of a German fire fighter in Zingst, Germany. For about 9 years I was hired to speak at the annual Zingst photofestival. On my last visit I was asked to shoot portraits of the volunteer fire department.
See below for a BTS (Behind The Scenes) photo.
The Gear: Canon camera set to 1/640 shutter speed, 160 ISO and a Canon 200mm lens set to f3.2
The Light: Open shade with 2 Sunbounce Pro reflectors, 1 Big Sunbounce reflector and a Sunbounce Pro Sunswatter.
This shows how the portraits were shot.
