Tested in the Sunshine - the Unseen Bits

Just a short blog here to give all you LUFANs a glimpse at some of the unseen photos/things from "Tested in the Sunshine" - a photoshoot we did in El Cotillo, Fuerteventura in the Canary Islands for LadyUmbrella ladies t-shirts. We have got more pictures for your perusal on our facebook fanpage but what you can't see there is this short video of when things don't run smoothly - enjoy.

I like to talk about the rigging and set up often used to record or do things here at LadyUmbrella. And, this is no exception. As there were only two of us there to record to Tested in the Sunshine and we were both in it we had to fashion some sort of rig. This consisted of putting a chair on a table to try get the height right for the video. It was close but it wasn't perfect so we then used the case for the BBQ utensils (yep we did some grilling, fun times) to get the height spot on. We did a few takes and noticed that the wind was making the sound quality awful so try counteract it we set up a haven for the camera - 2 rocks, a firelighters box and a towel draped over the lot. All in all it worked out all right got my thumbs up.

And so, there it is ..another blog in the can and another rig exposed. What do think of the Tested in the Sunshine video anyway? or impressed by the rig? let me know, love to hear from whoever reads this...stay happy..
