About the Video
While in Cologne for Photokina, I shot a couple of advertising images for Alan Michael USA, a client in Beverly Hills, California. I had shot with Esther 2 years earlier while giving a presentation on Guido Karp's "Leading Photographers of the World" stage at Photokina. I knew I wanted to shoot at the train station and had e-mailed Esther about the shoot and she agreed to meet.
I asked a friend if I could use his studio to shoot a little and have the makeup artist/hairstylist work on Esther. We shot some in the studio and then got into the car to drive to the station.
We parked and was able to get to the first location just in time to shoot with the last of the sunset... timing is everything.
Canon camera, 640 ISO, 1/200 second shutter speed with a
Canon 200mm lens set to f2.
I had an assistant hold a Sunbounce Pro reflector, using the white side of the fabric, beside Esther to fill in the right side of her face.
