Low Key Nikon D3s

This is another pic from the night on the set of Trigger. The Nikon D3s made it easy handholding everything shot that night apart from the light painting we did. This scene struck me and the rim light on the boy makes for a dark disturbing image. There is a lot of sadness in this image. There was a lot of pressure on this kid on the night with 200 people looking at him perform, not to mention at least 5 cameras pointed at him all night. He couldn’t play the piano at all but they had a stunt kid there to film the proper playing part. Stunt hands I guess you could say. He was pretty amazing too and probably only about 11.

  9. I think I would have to agree with you now about stepping over to the darkside when you shoot with nikon CF, You are sure proving the point with these latest shots.
    Why was the movie called Trigger ? was there a horse involved ? geez that comment probably makes me sound really old, but I’m not really.
