We met a bit earlier to discuss the setup etc (and also to get a coffee 😉 ) and then went over to the gate. The actual shooting started at 10am and we had to fight a bit with the sun being covered by some of the houses. We shot for about 1.5 hours and moved location several times around the gate.
Basic setup – changed a bit over time… see EXIF data.
Camera: Sony NEX 6
Exposure: f/4-5.6, 1/160, ISO 100

Flash 1: Canon Speedlite 580 ex ii @ 1/4th power into umbrella camera left
Reflector for fill camera right
Hair light: sun
Triggered by a set of pocket wizards
Here is a lighting diagram which is what we used more or less for all shots.
Atlantic Station as backdrop worked quite well and added some “urban feel” to the shots.
