DOP Adam Howden Checks In

2015-03-09

DOP Adam Howden checked in to let us know he’s updated his reel. He’s been shooting some spots with the gorgeous Shanina Shaik for Just Jeans, here’s a link to one of them featuring Shanina and Sonny Bill Williams.

The spot was shot in a warehouse building in Sydney above a martial arts studio. “The biggest challenge was that we were 3-4 floors up so getting lights up through the windows was out of the question.” Adam’s solution was to shoot using ambient sky light, “If the sun was on one side of the building we’d shoot on the other. This kept the light and mood consistent and then I just added some fill here and there to balance it all out, and some smaller HMIs to key’s when necessary.”

Adam also returned from LA recently where he shot a great content piece for Samsung featuring Australian band Cloud Control. Adam says “I love this combo of the Sony F55 and Zeiss Superspeeds MkIIIs it’s just a great balance between old and new. Shooting around LA’s 6th Street Bridge and warehouse district made this piece instantly recognisable as Los Angeles.
