Inflatable Engine

Photographing a 6-metre walk-through inflatable engine is not something you get asked to do every day!

While the huge installation would look fantastic at a midsummer event in the middle of an English field, that wasn’t an option. Instead I was offered a cold, unlit industrial shed in Corby. Oh the glamour of it all…

Elinchrom-Ranger-Quadra-RxI have a pair of Elinchrom Quadras which pump out a substantial amount of modifiable light, and used the techniques we use in the car studio to put together a range of comped images, one of which you can see above. The key is obviously keeping the camera still between the separate exposures, and also remembering what shots you need to achieve to make a good final image.
