Behind the Lens – MG Midget

On the shoot for Practical Classic magazine, as well as the owner and myself we had Neil with us (senior writer for PC who came to interview the owner and also to keep an eye on me 😉

I asked him to grab a few shots of me in action so I can include some more ‘Behind the Lens’ articles.

You don’t see many images of me…but at least this one has my best side!!! The resulting image of that set up is below… Straight forward shot.

Another shot of the set up… I mainly use a couple of Speedlights with Phottix triggers which I can work with at a good pace.

BTL Midget 2

Simple set up with a few speedlights just to bring a bit of definition to the engine bay…

The roll bar helped with attaching the rig and also to capture a driving shot. I would normally sit in the car to shoot a driving shot (see the camaro shoot blog) but as the Midget is…well small… it would be too crammed to get a shot without my feet or knees in it. Thank you roll bar!

BTL Midget 4

As I ran beside the car (thankfully not traveling that fast!) on a wireless remote I fired off a few frames…
