I had the opportunity recently to photograph CBS affiliate WINK-TV Meteorologist Joey Sovine. Joey has a busy schedule — so I only had minutes to get the shot I wanted. I couldn’t use the television studio to set up my studio strobes, because it’s being used most hours of the day for live broadcasts on two television stations — so here’s how I did it.
I set my studio lights up outside in the parking lot (just a cell phone shot here), and brought Joey outside for a quick photo shoot. Here’s the original photo:
After lighting and photographing Joey outside, I snapped a photo the TV set between newscasts, and inserted Joey in later. The images were taken with a Canon 5DmkII and a mix of Einstein 640 and Photogenic Strobes. Pocketwizard Mini, Flex, and PowerMC2 units were the radio triggers.
