It’s getting cold around here in North Carolina and it made me think about all the things we go through shooting outside when it’s really cold and windy. This shot was for an annual report for a bank that we shot near the Outer Banks of North Carolina. There isn’t a crop in the field and the trees have all lost their leaves. Wesley is the farmer, Buck is the Banker (can you guess?). It’s 38degrees outside with a gusting 20mph wind. These guys look comfortable as a cucumber. In the van keeping warm is the art director, snug as a bug. My assistant and I are so layered with clothes it’s tough to move. I have some gloves with the tips of the fingers cut off. A life saver. Insulated jeans help, too. Lot’s of battery power. We’re in the middle of a field without a plug for miles! The key is to work quickly. I kept the “models” warm in the van while we set up. They were in front of the camera for less than 5 minutes. They have short hair (key) and the wind didn’t gust while we took these shots. Drink lots of water when getting back in the van because this kind of cold dries you out fast.
What are they looking at? The white caps and swells of the ocean about 50 yards away. Did I mention the cold wind over the water??
