Here are some examples from a recent multi-day photo shoot for Holiday Inn Wilkes Barre.
The dusk photo involved carefully matching the ambient illumination at with carefully placed practical lighting under the tent. We also rigged additional lights for overall fill up inside the canopy tops, and lighting the lawn area in the background for ambience and separation
Not long ago we had the pleasure of photographing Paul Quick, Senior Vice President of Frontier Communications. Based in Dallas, PA, Frontier is a leading telecommunications company employing over 14,000 nationwide. We were pleased to be trusted with such an important role of photographing Mr Quick in an internet data switch room.
Paul was photographed for African-American Career World Magazine, which In addition to direct subscribers, is distributed by direct request in bulk to all 1,400 four-year universities, 34 top graduate schools, and all 296 accredited engineering schools at their placement offices.
In this case, it is the art of world renowned glass and metal artisan Maria Livrone. Maria has her work displayed coast to coast as well as worldwide. This was an interesting project for us to shoot.
Semi-transparant glass poses a real challenge from a lighting perspective. Too much light or light from the wrong angle can destroy the details in the glass and not enough light can make glass appear non-transparant. Maria was quite happy with the results and she is a repeat customer of many years.
How many people can we photograph? The answer is hundreds at a time. Earl and Sedor Photographic is a well equipped commercial photography studio. While we agree with the old saying that “the camera doesn’t make the photographer”, the lighting just might! That’s why we have almost 20,000 watts of flash from more than 25 flash heads and 15,000 watts of continuous light available for any occasion.
In short, we can melt a Hershey’s bar in about 5 seconds! Tim Allen would be proud – we need lots of power for big groups. The best part is that we can be set up, tested and ready for the talent to walk on set quickly. With a lot of light, some advanced planning and the knowledge of photography we can get “big groups” in and out with minimal delay. Take for example the Crystal Band from Scranton that we photographed recently. In came the band, they got into position, picture was taken… and they’re out and ready to go on stage for their 7 p.m. curtain! (click the picture to enlarge)
