Looking at the Automated Induction Hardening Scanner at Salto Heat Treating , I was a bit puzzled on how to capture the heat treating process within an image. Shooting through the viewable window was the most obvious scenario but I knew once the process started that window would get steamed and blurred as well as reflect any outside light sources. Photographing through windows can be a bit tricky.
It’s good to take a step back for a minute or too and ask yourself “How do I photograph this differently than the obvious?”
After “scanning” the scanner from top to bottom I found a camera angle that provided a different view than the obvious. I safely mounted the camera above Induction Heater with a wide angle lens to capture the action below.
I found myself once again at www.parksidevet.ca (a long time client of mine) creating some updated images for their marketing materials. One of my subjects was eager to participate in the photo and as a reward he got a scratching behind the ears. 🙂
There was no getting away from your breath showing itself on this cold day while I photographed Canadian Exploration Services on the job in the Northern Ontario wilderness. CXS was recently highlighted in www.northernontariobusiness.com
Canadian Exploration Services
Just few samples of Industry Magazines where my clients were showcased using the images I created for their company. Having high impact photography on hand for your marketing branding is essential in today’s social and print media.
Sometimes, the tripod just doesn’t go high enough, and if it did my height still is a factor. Fortunately when you surround yourself with friends, help is always close at hand. I still create images for some of my commercial clients over the years. I have created images for www.cambriancollege.ca viewbook for over a decade now and each year the Cambrian creative team come up with new scenarios that I try to capture. With this paramedic scene I just couldn’t get back far enough without bringing in more support and time was becoming a factor for this shoot. Luckily my buddy Franco stepped up and lent a helping hand (or two)
I love it when I get to photograph equipment immediately after assembly when the paint is fresh, the tires are clean and there isn’t a scratch to be found like this Rock Breaker Scale Boss I photographed before it was shipped to it’s client.
It’s a simple concept when I created this portrait. The lighting, composition as well as the lack of color are all minimal but why does it work? Personally I think it’s the expression on Kevin’s face. A simple smile that says a lot. It’s genuine. You can tell he’s enjoying the session, proud of the work he does for the company he works for www.provincialdoors.com . This image started with a conversation to get to know who he is and what he does and the truth is I am interested in everything he says because not only does he take pride in his work but in our conversation he knows that I take pride in mine and my goal is to capture a portrait that he can be proud of.
