The new issue of Script magazine is out now! Just got my copy yesterday and I am very happy to announce that I have the cover shot again!
Although it looks rather basic there is a lot of work that went into this photo. First we had to wake up at 3am drive downtown to pick up the crew and models, then drive out to Lake Shikotsu about a 1 and 1/2 hours drive. We started shooting shortly after sunrise. The smoke is from a disco smoke machine that we rented for the shoot. Electricity came from my generator and I used two Elinchrome flashes for the lighting. One with a grid aimed at the models face and the other hidden behind the tree to the right of the frame aiming up at the leaves. Since this was going to be the opening spread of the story I shot at least a hundred versions, certainly didn’t want to screw it up…..
