Today I finished a shoot for Team USA athletic wear. This was something very different for me. I usually shoot food and products. This was a product, but done with models…actually athletes, wearing uniforms. It went very well and we got some really nice shots. The models were extremely cooperative and professional. Actually one of them (see football uniform below) does model professionally.
I used white muslin for the test but decided that I would use a white vinyl seamless for the actual shoot since we had to go down to the model’s feet in some shots. Boy, what a difference. The wrinkle free vinyl background worked great.
We finished up with a lay down of some of the items that were missed. Everything had to be silhouetted and that took much longer than I expected – silhouetting around hair is much more time consuming than around a simple product. I’ll know better for next time.
