Bring the light

WEB-Spectrol-SNC-Lavalin-NL_GSL-5500

Its no secret that location shooting has its lighting challenges. To dark, too bright, too contrasty, not contrasty enough, wrong colour, mixed colour, back light….  That’s why we usually bring our own and lots of it. But every once and awhile you have everything set up and balanced and realise you need just one more light to make it sing …and the bag is empty. That’s what happened to us on this shoot in a dark cavernous machine shop. We were out of lights and we needed something to fill in the background. Thats when I spotted the welder on a break. I asked if he could help out and light up his welding torch to make some light. He asked how much? I said give me everything you got and he smiled.

Sometimes “available light” means any light that’s available.

Flatrock Fest 2014 story on the ACC National website

Erinn Locke climbing Yellow Fever at Flatrock, Newfoundland.

Far from the Rocky Mountains, out on the eastern edge of the country you’ll find the small but busy Newfoundland and Labrador Section of the ACC. On one weekend in August, at one of the most unique and spectacular climbing crags in Canada, you’ll find the annual Flatrock Climbing Festival – the biggest event in Newfoundland climbing. This year’s festival ran Saturday August 16.

The seaside cliffs in the fishing village of Flatrock, Newfoundland, 30km north of St. John’s, were first identified as a potential crag in the early 1990’s by a very small group of local climbers and have been used and developed ever since by the growing local climbing community. It has become the prime climbing area in the province with more than 40 routes on four different crags as well as plenty of bouldering set in dramatic coastal scenery. ….MORE on the ACC website
