Photos, sketches, and thoughts from my everyday life
Apperson is a very large printing company, and from what I know of them, they specialize in a printed form, similar to Scan Tron, as well as manufacturing scanning machines to read the forms.
This shoot was set in a school and classroom setting - a real school in Renton, WA. When I was told about the set, I had an old, wooden classroom in mind for some reason. Kentlake High School is very new, modern, and honestly, boring looking inside. I was pretty disappointed when I got to the set. I immediately realized I was going to have to step up my lighting game if I wanted to make the client happy with the photos.
I made sure I was using two-dimensional light set ups for everything. I used my AB1600 through a High Output Beauty Dish to make sure the whole frame had a even light to it. I set up a speed light for edge separation on the subject. Every time I showed the creative director on set the previews on my LCD screen, she got excited and said, “That’s perfect!”
All in all, the shoot was a success, and I think I’ve secured a good business relationship with this company.
