About the Video
This 3 day project was shot inside a custom guitar company in High Point, NC. I was hired by an Atlanta video producer to shoot stills only and when seeing what was there I asked my client if I could also shoot some video and they said yes. Most of my video projects are really still shoots where I shoot some video, and this was no exception. Anytime I shot a still and thought video would have been a cool thing to do, I did just that.
The challenge was dust, dust, dust and more dust, typical in any wood shop. We shot this in cool weather with low humidity and I could never get any image without dust somewhere. It was a nightmare.
