Vermejo Camp



Behind the Photo

The story behind the photo:  Dad wanted to capture the feel of a back-country elk hunting camp.  He used a wall tent with a sheepherder stove, Dutch ovens and, of course, an elk skull to set the mood.

Props were important in this photo, but dramatic lighting was the key.  The shoot took place just after sunset.  To light the tent, Dad placed two strobe heads in the back of the tent, facing up with diffusers to soften the light.  He planned to silhouette the models and this combination of light made the men snap out nicely.

Outside, Dad used another strobe to light the Dutch ovens and campfire.  As a final touch, an assistant used a fog machine to create a bit of mystery in the background.
