The first time I clicked on Paul Ripke's website and saw the images on it, I knew I had found something special. Fstoppers reader Thomas send us this video and Tobi helped translate what is going on this video. It maybe a little long for some of you especially if you only understand English but it's still pretty awesome. Check out the full post to see the images and a simple translation of how Paul is shooting this watch ad.
Tobi, a reader from the fstoppers message board, gave us a simple translation of what is going on in this video:
Happens to be that I speak his language, let me recap what they are doing. They are doing advertisement shots for a watch company. In the gear section he introduces that they do the video with the 5D Mark II, and do the photo stuff on the Hasselblad, water-proof housing would be important for this shooting. The assistant in the back of the boat (in this cave there lol) is the image editor, he sits there because the boat is to bright in other rooms and he likes to work in the darkest space available for whitebalancing and stuff...
