It's 2 years ago today that I pressed the shutter to capture this moment in time of @dylan_sheffer airing over a freight train. A stunt originally built by @kennysmith9 for the movie Inside Out. It took two months of planning to confirm the trains schedule was consistent and at a time in the summer where there would be enough available light to capture. We also noted the drop-in to mid jump time to make sure Dylan would be directly above the front locomotive. But it ultimately we got a little lucky too. In the fact that we didn't know 100% which direction the train would be coming in. We forgot to grab 2-way radios, I had to call Dylan's cell phone which ended up having a 3 second time delay. By far the most memorable shot date.
That's a $307k camera and lens setup I shot the wedding party with. Mad awesome experience it was working with the bigBoyCam arri alexa and the bazooka lens. Big thanks to amazing producer and Friend @donomope standing right next to me in this picture
The joys of having a 200mm telephoto lens. Popular to contrary belief, using a telephoto lens doesn't mean that you only use it to shoot paparazzi pics of celebs while remaining incognito 😂. Shooting landscapes with a tele lens will give you a unique perspective with more compression (the background pulled closer to the subject appearing larger & closer) as compared to using a wider lens (the background pushed back from the subject appearing smaller & further). Shooting flat landscapes with a wide angle lens gets boring pretty fast. Try picking an interesting spot and isolate it using a telephoto lens. You may end up with a photo no ones taken before.
