PHOTO JOURNAL: Sam Cooper #19
A few weeks back I made my way into Cambridge to get some footage of my good friend Zak for a upcoming video project. The temperature had dropped a little from the previous week’s summer-like heat, which the supposedly weather-hardened Scottish warrior was happy to remind us of every five minutes! Still, once he was done moaning like a little bitch, plenty of deals were had, and as well as getting some clips of Zak I managed to sneak in a few snaps. This was my favourite of the day and is a spot Zak has had his eye on since he first came to Cambridge. After a few attempts, trying to figure out where and how to take the awkward natural launch that had been created by the trees out-reaching roots, Zak smashed it out with ease and bags of style. I shot the trick with my Sigma 10mm Fisheye and lit Zak up with one Canon 540EZ at 1/16th power behind me (zoomed in 35mm) and another Canon 540EZ at 1/8th the power to my right (zoomed in 90mm).
