Pic(k) of the week 26: A day at work

For the ones that haven't noticed, half of 2012 is gone! Anyway. yesterday was a busy day photographically speaking. I left the house early morning for a large commercial shoot with an Architectural client. Even though it wasn't the easiest of jobs; climbing 50 feet high cranes for aerial photos, shooting all day in +40C temperatures, it was great fun and very rewarding! 10 Hours later the end result was more than 50 gigabytes (yes!) data on digital film!

The overall mission was to document several of the client factories and come up with some interesting environmental portraits, product details and architectural images. Probably the most challenging task was making outside group-shots with more than 250 people in one shot.

Unfortunately but for obvious commercial privacy reasons, I won't be able to share most the images online with my blog-readers. One image that I can share, is the image above of a worker on the job! Given the limited amount of light and the high pace of the shooting, using flash was not very practical. Shot at ISO 3200 on the D800, I'm pretty happy with the noise and I especially like the reflection on the glass panel!

While I've now started the editing process of the close to 1000 images, the client will probably get a collection of between 400 and 500 images.
