Parting Shot - Environmental Portrait of Robin Yukiko
The picture you see above cost $1800. Actually, for a professional studio shoot that’s pretty cheap. It was produced by writer and director Greg Bowyer for his new romantic comedy called “With This Ring”. It’s about a female surgeon who loses her engagement ring inside a notorious malpractice attorney. I’ve read the script, and it’s brilliant. (And, being a guy, I’m not usually a fan of romantic comedies!)
I pulled off this shot (plus about 500 others) with only 4 wireless flashes. More detail about that in a minute.
So what was the budget for what seems to be a very simple picture?
