[BTS] Ryan Schude Photographs “The Diner”
In this video , Ryan Schude walks us through his incredibly complex image “The Diner”. This is an incredibly complex scene which was shot at an old diner in LA and was lit entirely as one scene.
This scene involved a mind bending 24 lights and, 20 cast members and 12 hours of shooting! The final image consists of several different shots blended together to get the best expressions from each person. This is definitely a different approach from photographer Erik Almas’s work, which I posted a video of earlier. Ryan’s work is definitely an inspiration for all of us to get out from behind the computer and go do something incredible.
