Machinist portrait

leave a comment »

Today I was assigned to shoot a portrait of the owner of a machine shop here that is located in an old building and makes high-tech stabilizing gyros. Gyros are what the Army uses to steady gun sights on planes, what the Navy mounts their binoculars on ships with and how National Geographic and movie studios get rock steady shots from helicopters and cars. Needless to say it’s a small company and he’s a very busy man so I spent a little time trying to shoot him actually working, which wasn’t that interesting. I knew the article was about the old building, the history of the company and the technical aspect of the job. I set up some lights and shot a few frames, but that’s all I got with him. I wish I had a little more time, but oh well.

not a gyro you eat
