Featured on the cover of the Fall 2015 issue of Bakersfield Magazine is Temblor Brewing Company the premiere artisan craft beer pub located at 3200 Buck Owens Blvd. in Bakersfield, CA. (661.489.4855)
This image was created using traditional studio lighting styles combined with light-painting techniques and was shot on location in the brewery after hours so that we would have control over the ambient light levels. A full complement of Paul C. Buff White Lightning strobes modulated by Chimera soft-boxes was used to illuminate the array of beer glasses in the foreground while the huge stainless steel brew tanks in the background were lit using a powerful 5000º Kelvin LED light source that was walked though the shot during the nearly two minute time exposure. The resulting picture was a careful balance in ratio to match the light levels of both techniques to create this all-in-camera (no post Photoshop) practical special effect image.
