Cover Photography for a Classical Music Album: How it Was Done

Shooting a music video in a day is already a challenge in itself even if you have a cinematographer like Joel Kesler on your team. To make matters even more complicated, Montreal-based photographer Benjamin Von Wong also had to shoot the cover artwork on the same day. See how Von, Joel and their talented team managed to pull it off:

The Lighting Setup

Both the photo and video were shot with a Nikon D800E, Nikkor 14-24mm f/2.8G and the Nikon AF-S Nikkor 24-70mm f/2.8G ED Autofocus Lens.

He shares how he lit each photo,

The main fill came in from the extra-large octobox equipped with an Elinchrom RX Speed to help overpower the overcast day. On the opposite side, we had an Elinchrom Ranger Quadra in a 100cm deep octa to help bring just a bit of light back on Aline with a final bare strobe just to give a little bit of backlight suspended over the water.

We used a simple two light setup to light the foreground with a large reflective umbrella focusing on the two figures in the foreground, while the huge octobox was focused more on the two figures in the rear.
