On this video, photographer Jay P. Morgan from the Slanted Lens heads to downtown L.A., shooting some new products for Vanguard on the move and giving us a look at how he works.
Vanguard has some new products (we saw some of them in Photokina a few months ago and we already got 2 new bags we shall be reviewing in the near future). For the shoot Morgan uses only his camera and lens and one reflector.
This type of shooting has limitations – in many cases you need to crank up the ISO as shooting with artificial light is either impossible or impractical. This means that a full frame camera is a must and you need to be a stable as you can (Morgan didn’t use a monopod but it could have helped in this kind of situation). One big tip – don’t be afraid to go low (really low – down to the ground) if it will give you the angle that you need even in the middle of the street.
