Last month I spent about a week shooting this years Healthcare Hero’s article for Utah Business Magazine. I was really happy with how these shots turned out.
I shot most of these, not all of them, with the new Pocketwizard TT1 and TT5 wireless transmitters with a couple of SB800 speedlights. I have really been liking what I’ve been getting with these transmitters. Not only can I shoot at higher sync speeds like 800/sec or 1000/sec but they don’t have to be line of sight which is so nice. In this series of images I wanted to shoot with a window and/or natural light in the background (when possible) and at really wide open f-stop like 2, but not let the background blowout and with the new Pocketwizards I can do both. I can also use them at the same time with my Profoto D1 Air kit that I have. This came in really handy for when we shot the cover which we shot on location at a local hospital. I needed an extra light to soften a shadow on the background, so I used both of my D1 Air lights and one of my SB800’s to light the cover. The pocketwizards have really opened up some new ways of shooting for me and I really love them.
I was really grateful for the opportunity to shoot this for Utah Business Magazine. They have been a great client of mine for the last 4 and half years and this is one the fun projects I get to shoot for them every year. It is great because it is a challenge to get a good shot of these individuals and there is quite a few people to photograph. Often time I only have a few min. to get the shot and the locations are often a far from ideal, plus I need them to look similar for the article. I get to meet some great individuals and it a real pleasure to shoot. Here are the shots I would love to get some feedback if you feel so inclined. Thanks for checking out my blog and for your support. Thanks to all the individuals I photographed that are doing great things in our healthcare system. Have a great day!
