Another tear sheet from Ty Milford today, I promise I do work with other photographers! This one was a job for Toyota, highlighting the Prius C Habañero. Fantastic production provided by the always awesome Vail Palmer-White of the Photo-Group.
This shoot was really interesting from a Digi-Tech perspective since it was pretty much the kitchen sink of my capture solutions. The two hero shots are composite images from a tripod locked down and tethered camera (Canon 5D mk II), but the other lifestyle images also featured in the brochure spread were shot hand held with Ty’s usual run and gun wireless camera (Canon 1D X). Regardless of the different approaches used for the different types of images we always want the agency and client teams to have an excellent and consistent image review process.
The way I accomplished that was to have Ty’s wireless 1D X send images to my Macbook Pro location computer, which was connected to my 27″ monitor, while simultaneously displaying the images in real time in Capture One and via Capture Pilot on my image review iPads. Simultaneously, the 5D mk II was USB tethered via a hot folder to Capture One, also displaying the images on the laptop, monitor and iPads. Using this method it is easy to have multiple active cameras send their images to the same location for review and organization. I split the images by camera and shot, allowing me to rapidly display images from the relevant camera without disconnecting the other.
A great benefit of this was that we were able to use the wireless 1D X body to scout for good angles for the locked down camera without having to disrupt that set up and still show the AD our new angles on the full review kit of laptop monitor, 27″ montior, and two iPads. Later in the shoot when we had different teams wanting to look at different image sets it was a snap to broadcast one set of images to the iPads while displaying the other set on the laptop & monitor, speeding our work so we finished strong with good light and even had time for a beer after wrap.
In other news: I have a bunch of 2013 tear sheets still pending release. I am still awaiting a tear sheet form work with Kyle Dreier for Denny’s that has not yet gone to press. I also hoping for a tear sheet from a job with Kevin Arnold where I was an assistant, but we used the wireless image review system on one shot since it added value and gave a real world example of the value of that system. I have been doing some recent work with Dana Hursey which has also not yet been released. 2014 here I come!
