An enjoyable shoot with Denis Rule – The Lighting Guy.
This 500mm f4 lens from Nikon is quite the beast.
This shoot used 3 speed lights and light modifiers from Aurora – including a collapsible beauty dish.

More about light modifiers at thelightingguy.ca

And, of course, the model – Cherry, was cheery and fun to work with.

Schooner

Schooner

Model schooner by Brian.

Some years ago, Brian built a few model ships of various kinds. Some in a bottle, some larger & smaller. This was done especially for Nardin (the ship’s name is on the stern).

The wheel is carved from a single piece of wood and rotates freely. The lower boom swings about the mast. The upper boom is fixed, but was built the same as the lower one. The rigging is all tied tight. The cradle fits the hull perfectly. Each pulley has a hole in the to attach the rigging and simulate the real thing.

Beauty.
