August usually means the end of summer is approaching, so we wanted to make sure we got in some last days of ice cream tastiness at the Boston food photography studio! Things may have gotten a little messy, but isn’t that part of the fun with ice cream? Enjoy a little taste:
WYNN CASINO: BIG OPPORTUNITIES IN SMALL PACKAGES
Recently the team took on an unusual challenge of photographing a model of the new Wynn Resorts to be built in Everett, MA. The crew packed up their bags and went on location to Wynn offices to shoot the 6’ x 8’, 1500lb model of the soon-to-be casino. Our intern, Sarah, wrote a blog of the experience:
Jayna, Odi, Michael and I packed up the van early Wednesday morning and hopped on the road to head to Wynn offices in Medford. When we arrived and unpacked we were in awe at both of the models that were created for the planning of the casino. Our client informed us that the model was 1500 pounds and was delivered from Las Vegas and reassembled here in their Boston office.
We were able to move the model to anywhere in the room(luckily it was on wheels!), which really helped us get our backdrop and lighting just right. It was so nerve-racking to move the giant replica! After shooting a from multiple possible angles we packed up the car and headed home after a fun, but exhausting, shoot. Check out some images below!
We were definitely excited to have an on location shoot at the Wynn Boston Harbor offices!
I admired the model and was amazed it was almost the same height as me!
A shot from inside the giant “soft box” we created to get the perfect lighting.
Michael, our client, and Odi discuss possible angles for photographing the replica.
No small detail went unnoticed with this model!
The use of warming gels on the lights help capture the bronze color of the building.
A second model previewed the interior of the casino, showing a colorful floral design for the lobby. Included is also a beautiful ferris wheel and the Popeye statue created by famous artist Jeffery Koons, whose work is featured in several casinos in Las Vegas.
Michael sets up the composition for an eye level shot of the model.
Below are two of our final images. We can’t wait to see the real life Wynn Casino, coming soon
VIDEO PRODUCTION ON THE ROAD IN SAN DIEGO
Recently we went to San Diego for a video production project. It was a lot of early mornings and long days, but we live by the philosophy of work hard, play hard.
Our Production Coordinator sits with some of our equipment we had to bring for the shoot. No room for clothes when back up batteries are more important!
When we finally arrived in San Diego, we had a few moments to enjoy the warm weather and beautiful scenery before heading off to work!
Setting up all the cameras and lights took a while, but luckily the sunshine was cooperating with our team.
We brought in some local talent to conduct the interview, including a professional interviewer as well as some local grips. You can never have enough footage to help make a video look perfect!
After a hard day’s work, in the evening our crew found some time to enjoy the sunset along the waterfront.
Working for a studio, they couldn’t help but grab some beautiful shots!
The work might have been tough and the hours long, but at the end of the trip Our team were all smiles at a job well done!
