I love how Macworld Magazine switches things up. It's always something new and exciting. This time, rather than shooting the feature in studio, we ventured off to different parts of San Francisco with two models and two iPads. They wanted more of a loose type of photography with natural light and no strobes. We also ditched the Phase One P65+ and gave the Canon 5D Mark II the opportunity to shine. Our favorite lenses were the 85mm f1.2 and the 70mm-200mm f2.8.
Being out in public means a lot of people to avoid in the shot. One such case was in the public library when a lady had no clue she was in our photo. You would have to be pretty clueless not to see or hear us shooting. Part of the agreement we had with the library was not to ask people to move so we didn't. We just had to wait for her to move. A funny moment was when a man we saw at the library was also at the Embarcadero two hours later going for a run. He noticed us as he ran by and said, "Hey, I just saw you guys at the library!" It was a fun and adventurous two-day shoot.
