So I got last-minute call to do a location shoot for Jean Claude Biguine in Bangalore. They opened their second outlet in Phoenix market city, Whitefield. Took it up as the original photographer couldn’t make it, and ditched on the actual day of the shoot. Was quite a learning curve since they had the whole ceiling covered with lights, and glass/reflections all over.
The shoot was accomplished with 3 lights, while I only used 2 most of the time. The inner rooms were too tight, and a simple flash would suffice.
One of the fastest shoots I’ve ever done. Took me about 4 hours to shoot and delivered the photos in a day’s time I’m beginning to like these for their calmness and attention to detail.
Photographer tip – Something I learnt after shooting the venue. Polarizing filters are not just for the sun, but also interiors for cutting off reflections. Can save you a lot of post production work. When using lights indoor, one has to really watch out for reflections and glares the lights are going to cause. Takes some clever position and directing of lights to get it right.
