Budweiser is putting on a nationwide publicity campaign and promoting it in local launch parties. I teamed up with Lester Rosebrock to provide coverage. Lester took care of candids on the floor and I was asked to provide onsite printing from shots using a custom backdrop constructed by the promoters. The crowd was smaller than the last one I shot for them and it was a relief. It was in the same location at Sunset Station in San Antonio so I used the same lighting which worked well last time.
Lighting consisted of a 60″ Chimera Octabox above camera and a 36 Chimera Octabox over the backdrop for a hairlight. I tethered my 5D MKI with a 24-105 f/4 @ f/11 1/160 ISO 200 to an Apple MacBook Pro and connected my Sony UPC printer.
I provided 4×6 prints for the guests as requested by the promoters and the printer worked flawlessly for the entire event putting out around 200 prints total.
I processed a couple of the images with Alienskin and OnOne plugins for interesting effects and placed all the images online for the promoters and participants to view.
