Above is an entire shoot I did earlier this month – every frame I made – in a very cool industrial loft conversion in West Oakland.
I shot the Cigar Factory Lofts (Saxland Development) in December, and they were first on my list when I was looking for a location to do some test shooting with models. With the big expansive floorplan, high ceilings, large windows, exposed brick and trusses — I knew things would look good. There’s a couple outtakes below, including an ambient-only shot for you with lighting fetishes.
In the video above, I’ve compressed a 3-hour shoot into about 2 minutes. It pauses briefly on the shots we felt worked. This was a fun project and I’m currently scouting locations for a follow-up….so stay tuned.
