Bonsai trees ohoto shoot
This is a Photo Shoot of some of my bonsai trees , whichwe had been trying to organise for over a year. As the shoot was outdoor and dependent on good weather coupled with Owen, his team’s and own schedules. Finally, sustained good weather arrived and we were able to proceed. I had never before seen a professional photo shoot and had no idea what was involved. As I saw three guys getting all their kit from the cars to the location and start to set it up, I decided to record their work. It took over three hours to set up their equipement and the camera linked up to a computer to which all the photo would be viewed and saved.
Owen explained the strategy that we would start with the larger trees and work down as the set and the equipent would need to be adjusted in line with the size of the tree.
It was a tricky start as the sun light moved, it caused problems with lighting, this was got over by Owen and his team as they worked out a solution to this.
Owen and his team took the photos, checked for lighting and focus and in many cases took more shots as they were not entirely delighted with the initial result.
The guys started at 9.00am and started wrapping up at 6.30pm. We have shot break for lunch which I had organised, consisting of roast chicken, salad, french bread and a bottler of merlot.
My thanks to Owen Smith, Clive Roslin and Josh Shahrum-Smith for their time, effot which they put into the shoot and also careful handling of the trees.
