For this shoot, we knew we would be facing tough weather conditions. That meant we had to plan the shoot carefully before going out and doing it. Clothing for the team was one consideration, as was which lighting modifiers and packs would withstand the wind, sea spray and rocky footing.
Once on location, the shoot required clear communication among the team. With rapidly changing lighting conditions, it was necessary to make several changes throughout the shoot, including the position, placement and power of the lighting. Karl also used filters to control the lighting. These needed regular cleaning thanks to the abundant sea spray.
