How to Shoot Comedians Will Ferrell And Zach Galifianakis
Jeff Lautenberger, staff Photographer for the Dallas News, had just three minutes to photograph comedians, Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis for a feature story on the duo’s upcoming movie, “The Campaign”. The set? An empty hotel room at the Ritz-Carlton in downtown Dallas. With no time to set up artificial lighting, Jeff improvised and had to use two windows next to the bed as a natural softbox. While the concept for the images was simple, given the parameters of the shoot and the need for quick thinking, Jeff’s task was harder than it seems. What would you have done differently, if anything? Be sure to check out the behind the scenes video below.
