David X. Tejada Takes You Out On Another Shoot

Strobist reader/pro shooter David X. Tejada has posted another video, this time of a shoot at a drilling rig. (Dave specializes in that energy industrial stuff.) I especially like the parts in the video which show him interacting with his subjects after having set up the light.

Dave's photos have a very "naturally lit" look, with the light not calling attention to itself. This is important to remember, unless you happen to be shooting for a client that is also a lighting geek. One of my weaknesses is I tend to like to amp the light no matter what, which can sometimes make the picture about the light rather than, well, the picture.

What Dave is doing is more subtle, and, I would suspect, more lucrative.
