The Surveying Company - Hawkes Bay

I recently had the pleasure of working with Seamus from The Surveying Company in Hastings to shoot some images for their new website.

We spent the day at the foot of the Ruahine Ranges, just to the west of Waipukurau in Central Hawkes Bay.  One of Seamus' Surveying team, Gavin played the part of model for the day, while Seamus became very adapt at being my 'Voice Activated Light Stand'.

For these images I wanted to under expose the ambient light a little bit to make the star of the shots (Gavin) pop out of the image.  I used portable/battery powered studio lighting to light the subject and fill in the harsh shadows, while taking care of the ambient exposure in camera.
