    the K.A.K. story..... part 2

    31 March 2012
    Mohammadpur, Dhaka, Bangladesh

    read the first part of this blog here....

    if you had been following the K.A.K. story, you probably know that we had been through a lot of brainstorming... and one of the top considerations in relationship portrayal was 'friends in need'..... our second setup was based on that.... some of the tough moments in individual's life are sometimes taken care of by friends... the relationship of K.A.K. took a deeper meaning every now and then with the advent of such situations.... the ability of the group to solve problems together had always been a strong point of their relationship....

    to highlight this, we decided to pick the guy most appropriate for the 'distressed' role!... and from there, it just evolved... we didn't forget to end the theme with some fun... so, we gave Kamal and Kamrul and open cheque!..... :)

    lighting was simple for this.... one Elinchrom Ranger RX unit with a 100cm Rotalux "Deep Octa" on camera left.... and a couple of YN-560 flashes bouncing from the white wall on camera right.... trigger was an Elinchrom Skyport... the YN flashes were all on optical trigger mode...

    for the third setup, we decided to portray 'fellowship'... its true that it happens to all friend circles... people have their differences... but in the end its friendship that clears everything up and wins the day... friends just end up following a single path even though there's disagreement.... we again needed to pick the right guy to show the dispute or tension.... every friend circle have people with roles... it wasn't that hard to pick, obviously.... the fun factor was important for this setup.... and yes, it was lotta fun! :)

    we had two softboxes on two sides.... one Lastolite 24" Ezybox Hotshoe and one 24" Shashinki softbox.... two YN-560 flashes in them.... we wanted the light to be a bit moody.... so, we didn't want light all over the place.... the placement of the two softboxes made sure of the low spill of light on the backdrop... camera was Nikon D700 + Nikkor AF 28-80mm lens... Elinchrom skyport was the trigger for one flash... the other one was on optical trigger mode....

    stay tuned for a lot more.... :)
