If This Guy Can Dunk: Photo Shoot

I just recently met up with my friend Jason King and did a shoot with him to promote his new website and personal project Jason is about to turn 30 and in an attempt to cling to his his youth, he is learning how to dunk a basketball. If you haven't yet had a chance to check out his website, I highly recommend grabbing a comfortable chair and clicking through his video journals. They're funnier than hell, well edited and have a killer soundtrack.
Anyways, all pimping of someone else's work aside, below is a link to a short behind the scenes video we shot during our shoot. This isn't a technical "how to" lighting seminar, it's just a little teaser to show what went into making the shots. Enjoy!


  1. I would love to know more behind the scenes info - such as what lens you used, technical info from those photos - you have some amazing shots and it would be great to know the technical details!

  2. More technical data... sure thing.
    Most of the images from that shoot were with the Nikon 28-70mm f/2.8 AFS lens.
    Beyond the lens, lighting was with an Elinchrome Ranger AF strobe. The "s" head was diffused with a softbox slightly to one side of the model, at head level. Secondary highlights were provided by the sun (low on the horizon) behind the model.
    Feel free to email with any more questions... happy to help.
