29 Mar Texas DP Swings Down To Houston For Marketing Firm Shoot
The other day I was in Houston for a quick corporate shoot. It’s the sort of day where you spend more time driving than shooting. The client needed one interview shot in front of a white backdrop. No problem. We can do that.
I shot the interview on a Canon C300 Mark 1 with an 85mm f1.2. I used a 12-foot curtain rod to hang the white backdrop. We couldn’t get a white seamless backdrop in time so I had to improvise. I went to Lowe’s and picked up a 9x12ft white painter’s cloth. Although it has wrinkles that you can’t fully remove, you can get rid of them on camera if you shoot at a fast f-stop.
After the shoot, we wrapped up and headed back to Waco, Texas. I copied over the footage to my computer while we were on the road. Once I got home I uploaded the interview via dropbox for the client to download. This was a super smooth shoot. It’s always nice when that happens. Thanks CTN Communications!
