Robots In The Desert – My Photoshoot Video


vimeo Direkt

I know I’ve been teasing a few images here and there from this photoshoot from awhile, but the behind the scenes video and more finished photos are finally here! Hope you enjoy the video.

This photoshoot took place in Nelson, Nevada about 30 minutes outside of Las Vegas. Most of the photos were taken with 2 x3200 White Lighting strobes with 7″ silver reflectors mated to 2 Vagabond II battery packs from Paul C Buff Inc.

Most of the color treatments were created using Nik Color Tools. I will most likely do a video soon showing you how I use Nik tools to tweak the color on my photographs.

If you like this shoot, check out some of my other videos like: this, this, this, this, or this (and many more). Also, stay tuned to my blog and twitter for more unique stuff and behind the scenes.

Behind the scenes video was done by my co-producer, Nicholas Cambata, in the production company we run together, 8112 Studios.

Let me know if you have any questions!

    Awesome photos as always Douglas, and I love the video.

    I’d be really intrigued to see your video on your Nik Color workflow too… I love BTS with post production. I always learn something new.

    Cheers!

  6. Pretty cool.
    This reminds me of Robocop! :)

  7. Lovely photos! I’m amazed by the costumes and location.

    How did you not end up in the reflections of the costumes, post editing or just camera angles?
