04 Jun Nashville Crew Shoots for “Unsung” in Atlanta
When I found out I would be shooting for Unsung I was pretty pumped. I love the “behind the music” type shows. I couldn’t wait to find out whom we were doing a show on. It turned out we were shooting interviews with members of the group ConFunkShun. Cool!
Unsung has a specific look when it comes to interviews. They sent me a backdrop to use a few days before the shoot. I had a blast lighting these interviews. For each interview I used a different pattern to add texture and depth. I also got to play around with different colored gels.
I was shooting on two cameras for this shoot. The Panasonic HDX 900 was my medium shot. The Sony Z1U was framed as a close up shot. One of the best things about the day was that we were in one of those big hotel rooms. That meant I didn’t have to black out any windows plus I could get maximum depth. Score!
Once everything was set up the day was smooth sailing. It was a blast listening to all the stories about ConFunkShun. I can’t wait to shoot for Unsung again!
