Hi All,
Thought I’d start the week off with a short ‘Behind the Scenes’ video I put together from a recent ‘on location’ promotional photo shoot with Artist Colin Castle (www.colincastleart.com)

In the next few days I’m going to write a more detailed post covering all sorts of stuff like the the briefing, location assessment, lighting and some of the challenges we had to overcome, finishing off with the final tweeks added in post production but in the mean time,
Enjoy 🙂

> Big thanks to my good buddy Neal Hibbert for the support and for grabbing some video footage; also does a mean V.A.L. (Voice Activated Light Stand) 🙂

    Nice vid who took the footage? LOL. The best bit without doubt is ME saying voice activated light stand! Seriously it was a good day, hard work but very enjoyable and again I came out learning a lot 🙂 Colin and his wife are such lovely people and it really was a pleasure helping you capture him, he is also an awesome artist!

    good to see a bit of your working method Glyn, like the placing the speedlight for plant shadow.
    Watch out for that Neal, he is either trying to get himself a bigger role in these vids or he will want paying for his talking part 🙂
    Good vid mate

    Glyn, that speedlight placed behind the plant was a stroke of genius! It really brought the whole shot to life and made it look like he was in sunny Spain rather than gloomy England. Really great to see you at work. Thanks for sharing.

    Neal, (sorry Glyn) nice video! 😉

    Looking forward to seeing some more insight into how you set this up Glyn, particularly the lighting used on Colin in that shot of him working on the sketch of the cat.
