Oh, the places we’ll go!
Theresa and Joey were incredibly laid back and fun to work with! I’m sort of like the Energizer Bunny on a wedding shoot and they kept up with me all day (despite Theresa having great difficulty moving in her dress). The above location is a decrepit factory near downtown Stratford. Special thanks to the girl at the tourist info center for pointing me in it’s direction. I love juxtaposing wedding couples with strange yet awesome-looking backgrounds. Ben Kane was my trusty second on this one.
La Hacienda Sarria in Kitchener is an incredible wedding venue. I stumbled upon it while shooting the Crossfit calendar—Dianne Green brought us there, and we got a special tour around the place. I couldn’t wait for a chance to use it in a shoot; these are some pics taken at the Hacienda in tandem with the video that appears on the homepage of ericyu.ca (and below the pics).
Here’s the video. It features two couples; the second of which is Alexandra+Andrew. Special thanks to Ben Kane, who did all the shots where I had to appear in the video, Joe Raasch and Angela Wilson for assisting, Jenn Eades for makeup, and Carly Blasutti for makeup and hair.
Photo shoot for the Women of Crossfit Kitchener calendar. I’ve posted about all six of my Crossfit calendar shoots; to see them all, click here, or the “Crossfit” tag at the bottom of the post. Lindsey was photographed in Kitchener, at the peak of the hill in McLennan Park, aka “Mount Trashmore”. We needed an unobstructed view of the sky—just her, a little bit of ground, and the sky. She tried a few different yoga positions, but this one—dancers pose—seemed to work best for the situation. It was super windy, and Lindsey could only hold the position for so long before losing balance.
The above pic made it into the calendar. Some camera tech: shot on a Canon 5D mk II, 70-200 2.8L IS II USM lens, one flash was gelled full CTO and triggered by a Pocket Wizard (Mini TT1 on-camera, Flex TT5 on flash). Settings: ISO 320, 90mm, f/18, 1/200th).
It was waaaaaay too windy to put the flash on a stand, so Ben served as my human-light-stand, just out of frame for most of the shots. However, he made it into a couple pics (below).
