Work // US President in Saudi Arabia

22nd May 2017

An example of the kind of quality that shooters can now attain in minutes with limited kit. I was asked to set up this interview in less than 5 minutes during a lull in President Trumps visit with both a main camera and also reverse angle.

The main camera was Sony FS7 and the reverse is a Sony A7s mounted on a lightstand (I didn’t have a second tripod free). A single Aladdin flexi panel has been used to fill both the reporter and the guest. The location was a busy hotel reception, so I decided to dice with the lens at f2.2 in order to make the most of the natural light and try and put some depth between the subject and the background.
