One camera... seven strobe heads...


Yeah, I guess sometimes it is about the equipment.

As usual, awesome shot...Curious, did you place lighting above the lamps to accentuate structure or did you shot a pile of tests and light where appropriate?

HAHA! That is funny. You are right...sometimes equipment is what you need...especially in your business!

BTW, love the shot! That room is amazing!

Not sure I understand the question, but I did shoot many test shots (about 15 test shots) along the way while adding more and more light to the shot. Here is the first shot in the series. The whole process for this one shot took about an hour.

You answered it. Thanks Rick. Talk to you soon.

Rick: It was great that you showed an early shot to show the difference.

BTW... I meant to point out that a room with dark walls is difficult to photograph. The walls just suck up all the light and none of it bounces around filling in the shadows. You just have to throw a lot more firepower at a scene like this.

Great shot. Thanks for showing the first shot, that sort of posting is a huge help.
