In one of my recent posts I talked about shooting interiors with small strobes and remotes. It’s a way of shooting I learned in my days as a member of the National Press Photographers Association. Eventually I migrated and became of member of The American Society of Media Photographers. In March I was fortunate to meet a location photographer out of Denver, Colorado. David Tejada gave a presentation to the Philly chapter of ASMP about shooting on location with small strobes and remotes. He also conducted a workshop at The Eastern State Penitentiary in Philadelphia. It was my first time visiting the historic and creepy prison-turned-tourist-attraction and I lived in Philly my entire life!
It was great to see the equipment I used to light cave-like gymnasiums for basketball games also in use for high-end corporate annual report work. It’s the versatility photographers have regarding adapting to varying lighting and locations that makes every shoot a challenge and when the results are successful, it’s great.
Above is a video piece I put together for David’s talk at ASMP and some clips from his lighting workshop at ESP. Information about David is here as is info about his workshops, Small Strobes, Big Results.
