So if you follow this blog, youre probably sick of seeing MCMB, right? NO WAY! - best dudes ever! - so when I got the word they needed a new shoot - of course I was down to shoot it and hang out
So the concept was to have them more dressed up, classy, somewhat model-like in some of the images as well.
I knew ahead of time, they if they dressed up - on a hot day - they would be sweaty and shiny - but whatever - I've dealt with worse - so going in knowing what to expect helped a bit.
We started in studio - I did a set up with two rims at the side of the paper about 2 feet above their heads pointed toward their shoulder - using and switching out a beauty dish and a 3x4 softbox - I shot these at ISO100 - F10 (softbox) F14 (dish) - at a 160th - using the 70-200 2.8
After shooting a bunch inside we went outside and started off by shooting against a concrete wall with a uni400 with a beauty dish boomed above - shot at F22 ISO100 at a 160th
The next set was THE set we were looking to do - I shot this natural light with the 24-70 2.8 L - at 2.8 - the speeds varied between an 80th and 200th - depending on where they were in relation to the sun - which was fading and overcast at that time. We really wanted it to look like nothing either of us have really done before - and it worked perfectly.
Working with the MCMB dudes is always awesome, matthew has ended up being a really good friend aside from just someone who is always awesome to work with. So with that said, the shoot was a success, we got exactly what we both wanted out of it!
