BTS: Martin Schoeller Photographs Ryan Lochte
Martin Schoeller is one of my favorite photographers, and it so cool to see a BTS video of the Time cover above with a few nice layers of technical info included.
Video and links after the jump.
So that black background didn't just happen by fall-off. Schoeller and his crew spent some time on this, but got a really nice set of images. No idea what the underwater strobes were. If anyone knows, hit us in the comments. There is a "Behind the Covers" piece at Time's website. For more of Martin's work, see his portfolio site, or this annotated BTS video of a female bodybuilder portrait.
