Behind The Lens

Location
This was an assignment to cover all the processes of producing pure silver coins.
Time
Middle of the day, all photos were inside the warehouse.
Lighting
It was a very small room with extreme temperatures. (silver melts at about 1800 degrees). I was able to use 2 portable strobes- one for front fill and one strobe over the shoulders and hit the back wall.
Equipment
I used my Nikon D800 with a 24-70mm, with 2 portable strobes. And i did use a tripod.
Inspiration
I loved the idea of this shot, but the logistics were a little tough because of the extreme heat and small area to work with. I had to have them do a couple pours to get the composition I wanted. So every time they poured the heat was intense and I was wondering if my camera could handle it, but it did!
Editing
Yes, i added saturation and sharpness in certain areas. I took my reflection out of myself in the mirror of the protective head cover.
In my camera bag
I just added the Nikon Z7, but i have my D800 as backup now. I have a 16mm, 24-70mm and 70-200mm. A on camera external flash that i may need for flash fill. I also have 7 portable strobes i have if needed for the job. I shoot a lot of interiors and i need multiple strobes for those type of shots. Radio slaves to work on the strobes. I have been using Camranger to see images on a tablet when I have the opportunity to use it.
Feedback
Ha! Have a tolerance for high heat? lol. I love the challenge of these type of shots.
