Commercial Photo-Shoot for International Jet
DeHaven Digital Photography, LLC was recently hired to produce commercial photography work for Centennial Airport based “International Jet” an executive private jet charter reaching over 5,000 airports in the United States.
The scope of the project involved showcasing many of the private passenger jets, the facilities, hangar, and key personnel, along with demonstrating their signature personal touch given to each and every client. Built in 2003 International Jet is the largest private facility at Centennial Airport.
In order to capture the best tonal range between the sky, airplanes and vehicles for the beauty shots, the photographs were taken using bracketed exposures with intent to tone-map HDR (High Dynamic Range) combined images. The process involves setting the camera (Canon EOS 5D Mark III) to capture seven images using bracketed exposure mode which varies the shutter speed for each photo exposure to control the amount of light let in to the camera’s sensor. The aperture must remain the same to keep the depth of field consistent throughout the shots. Afterward, the images are combined using an application like Photomatix Pro to merge each of the different exposures into a single image with all the tonal range information from the varying exposures in-tact.
The action shots with the models and personnel are captured using a more conventional method—a slight amount of fill flash set to match the ambient light to remove harsh shadows and bring the subjects into clear view.
Local models Caleb Gardner and Erin Kelley were hired to play the parts of businessman, husband, wife and mother respectively. They brought their best and the resulting photographs are a testament to their professionalism.
During this shoot, the Eye-Fi Pro X2 SDHC card was utilized to send small JPEG files wirelessly to a Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 that the client was holding, watching the photographs appear as they were shot. This allowed the client to see the shots on a larger high quality screen and become an active participant directing the shoot.
DeHaven Digital Photography, LLC is proud to showcase yet another satisfied client and a very successful collaboration with a multitude of individuals. Photography is our passion, our business, and our motto “Look Your Best” applies to everything we produce.
