Title: Want to help out on a dangerous shoot?
Post by: Jonathan on June 21, 2010, 12:05:24 PM
'k I've asked for help here before and the response has always been fantastic.

I have a shoot in the planning stages that in theory is a little dangerous.  If it goes wrong then I or the model could be killed.  Really.  So I'm taking every possible precaution.  Anybody want to help out?  It would be fairly easy (and a little boring) and I'm afraid there's literally no chance of taking pics (except maybe a couple of BTS ones).

You'd need to be physically fit and strong enough to lift 30 kilos (lift not carry).  You'd need to be a confident swimmer though it's unlikely you'd need to swim and if you know CPR that's a definite bonus.

Shoot in Kent one weekday in July (date TBA).

Interested?

I've done plenty of underwater stuff and have my advanced padi and all that, but not sure i'm really fit enough at this moment.
Oh yes, i've done CPR as well though i'm currently out of accreditation.

Underwater photography is one of the most wonderful areas of photography and what digital cameras were invented for!

I won't be applying for the post as I fail pretty much every one of Jonathan's requirements. But I'm looking forward to the results.  :)

Hmm...

Just about do 40kilos at the gym...
St John Ambulance qualified for the past 10 years, though life guard stuff maybe not... But CPR yes... AED Level 2 too!
Loads of spare time, oh wait work hmm...

Transport? - :doh:

Purely as an aside, Black+White magazine has an article and pictures of underwater nudes in this month's edition.
Some of the pictures appear on
http://www.matthaeusfineartphotography.com/folio_swimmer.html#grid

not a particularly good web site for viewing though.

Interesting and some clever shots Alan.
Not easy to get so well done that man for achieving it.

Not sure Jonathan is after the same type of image but none the less - it will be every bit as difficult getting the shots...

Craig it is well worth a day off work ( and a train ride)  to experience how Jonathan goes about his business, it looks like you're the most qualified. I know I really enjoyed the shoot I went on with him and picked up plenty of ideas of how to go about things - take a chance you wont regret it!
Title: Re: Want to help out on a dangerous shoot?
Post by: picsfor on June 23, 2010, 12:25:37 PM
agree with Irv. If being a pro tog is what you want to be about - you sometimes have to speculate to accumulate.
You may not get to take a single photo - but it will be worth it i can assure you.
But don't expect to see the 'blad' on this shoot  :'(

Were i fitter the race would've been over when i spotted this on Jonathan's Twitter page...

'k bit of an update....

First up
Craig - cool.  I can pick you up at a nearby station if that helps - let me know.  CPR is good ;)
Irv - be great to have you along.  If both you and Craig can make it then between you you won't be that busy but I'm very happy to have an extra person around for this - really I'm not messing about with water and electrics....

Shoot is being planned for 2nd week of July ish but there are a LOT of things to pull together here.  Especially cos I called an underwater expert today and apparently the way I want to light it isn't normal.  There may be some technical issues....

Anyway, so far I have
1. a couple of very experienced models though depending on the day we may be down to 1
2. an incredibly talented make up artist who specialises in underwater make up
3. a location
4. an untested theory about how to light it
5. a rather lovely dress.......

More news when I figure it out.

My dad won't be working that weekend either and I got photog from him so we could get the train or w.e but he can't swim and I do better without parents around aha. But Irv as backup spuds good.

I'll ask at work tonight if I can book the 2nd weekend off then and ask folks about trains and such when they are home. If it's a Sunday then even better but in guessing it's not aha, usually how these things work prob...

This would do well for my blog for uni too :D.

Jonathan - I'll tweet you later!

Craig, if Jonathan thinks it cool for us both to be there, I can always pick you up and drop you off from London Euston station if its easier, which will save JR to get on and do whatever at his end

Just thought, I won't be able to get to the station or where the coach/bus leaves on time so I won't be able to do it  :-[

But maybe next year from after easter ish, when I do Pro Practice or whatever they call I maybe be able to if you have projects or what ever going...

I know, was looking forward to meeting people off this Forum, a midlands meet never happened either lol.

Thanks for the offer but I can't get to my train station in time to get to Euston lol. Plus if I got the coach then thats even further to go from mine and I can't really get to that lol...

Hmmm my diary is complicated......I was aiming for the 8th but now it's looking like the 20th July.  I have model, frock and venue.  Just waiting on the MUA - who is pretty important.  It's very specialised.

Who is up for 20th?  Start rigging at 10ish ready to shoot around noon.

Craig you absolutely have to make this, if only because I want to see photos of Jonathan drowning whilst being fried by his lights!
Seriously, this is a golden opportunity and you need to rethink. Surely a mate can get you to the station? For a chance to watch and learn from Jonathan I'd borrow a bike and peddle there! I cannot believe you are letting a relatively minor problem get in the way.

Right.  We're on.

I have:
1. A pool
2. an amazing model
3. a staggeringly talented underwater make up artist
4. a plastic bag to put my camera in
5. an untried and frankly pretty odd system for triggering the lights
6. a dress worth well over a grand that we can get wet
7. The mighty Irv
8. a BTS video guy

20th July we'll be doing this for real.

What could possibles go wrong?

Craig - you in or out?

Can't thank Irv enough for this.  He worked very hard all day and the best bit for me was when I was collapsed at the end trying to drag myself into the shower when I realised.....Irv had packed everything up :)

First snap on the site.  Many more to come.  http://peoplebyryan.com/photoblog/mermaid

While your blog describes the difficulty of getting some one to keep their eyes and mouth open under water - i wonder how many actually appreciate how difficult that really is!

Used to go swimming on a Saturday from 09:00 until 17:00 and always had my eyes open underwater, but they were a bit red at the end of the day.  ::)

At Woodcock Street baths I could only manager half an hour because, they put too much Chlorine in the water.  :'(

Thanks Oldboy  :) but it really was all Jonathan.
 How well he put the models at ease and then sat ( countless times ) under the water for 2 to 3 mins a time was incredible. All day long, he was in control of every thing going on all around, while producing many many fantastic shots.

No! totally dry land for me Andrew, except for the couple of times I had to help the models adjust their dresses while they were still in the pool, (Yes!! that bit was as awful as it sounds ;D ;D ;D) including having to cable tie one of the models into the dress at one time :o

Very well done Jonathan, the images have a great atmosphere. Those poor girls looked like they were  gasping for air at times so I hope you rewarded them well  :)
Thanks for sharing the video as I never get to see anything like a pro shoot, its always just me wandering about looking for something to happen.  I wont be taking the D3s under water but I think new locations need to be explored.

No.  But I'm in touch with Ewa who made the housing ;)

Ah.  Wait for the next one.  Irv was supposed to be listening out but plenty got through...

>> FSTOPPERSSS!!

Already up there ;)  I'm going to encourage Aidan to do a special cut for them (it has to mention Fstoppers somewhere in the video)

>> Those poor girls looked like they were  gasping for air at times so I hope you rewarded them well

Yeah there's a bit where Jess hits the surface and breathes too early.... :)

If I had a D3S (and I may get one soon) then I would have used it underwater - that's just a D3 :)  You have to take risks.

BTW apparently one of the pics from that shoot was one of the 10 most interesting things that happened that day.... http://www.flickr.com/explore/interesting/2010/07/27/

Jonathon, if you want to repeat the experience in an outdoor pool you could always pop over to Spain and see me ;), get some nice natural light in an outdoor pool. It was 31c water temperature yesterday and its unheated pool at that. Great shots and an interesting video. Thanks for posting.  :tup:

That is actually really tempting.

An outdoor pool would solve a lot of lighting issues.

Plus that's 3 degrees warmer than the indoor heated pool I was in.

beat me to it. I was gonna suggest it was a requirement under H&S  :doh:

BTW - did note a fair bit of activity on the pictures posted on Flickr - but well done on the high ranking in the daily interest ratings.

Yeah but the bath shot has had 3,500 views.  Not that I'm counting.

It was quite funny - somebody left a comment yesterday to say it was in Explore.  Which is nice.  Then ALL DAY while I was out I was getting comments and faves updated to my phone.  It took me ages to realise how highly it was ranking.

FWIW I prefer the shot I used for the post on the video page.

A lovely picture. Would have been nice to have the story behind the picture.
Well spotted and shared.

That's gorgeous.

Lighting info is a little weird - not sure how you could get a White lightning behind them unless it's a pool with observation windows.  I'd love to see it without that texture overlay.

Yeah - I suspect that's retro or something....since it took them all day to FTP the final cut to me I hadn't the heart to say anything.
