It was freakin' hot out there! Boil-your-brain hot! Plus lots of sudden wind gusts and dirt devils kickin' it up.

Here's a BTS shot I snapped, captured around mid-day. For this set we were overpowering the sun with one-light (Buff/Zeus pack & head) and using the Innovatronix ExplorerXT portable power system to energize the pack. Shooter is RickH (Simi Studio) w/ Lewis, my PGS DVD partner, assisting. Model is Dahlia, hired off of Model Mayhem. She was a trooper all day in the heat and dirt, etc.

We arrived at the location around 10:30 AM and were there till about 8:00 PM, splitting our time between the private property location where we set up our base of operations (with a big, pop-up canopy) and out on the dry lake bed. Mother nature provided some cool clouds in the BG for part of the day. Plenty of sunscreen, water, Gatorade, Red Bull on hand. A fun (tho exhausting) day was had by all.

We snagged some great footage (HD video) as well as a number of cool photo sets demonstrating different artificial lighting set-ups or simply using scrims and reflectors. I shot BTS stuff and a very short, golden-hour, set out on the dry lake bed. I had Rick doing most of the photo-shooting while I abused him, I mean mentored him, for most of the day. We also had two video-cam operators, Kyle and Patrick, rounding out the crew.

That was just Day One of shooting for the DVD, a short segment about on-locaton shooting. We have much yet to shoot: Studio, interior locations, plus interviews and other stuff. The DVD will be available by the end of the year, sooner if possible. After we're done shooting, there's still editing, sound mix, authoring, artwork, printing, and replication. I'm guessing we might start taking pre-orders somewhere in and around end of September or beginning of October. We'll be building a new website, prettygirlshooter.com, that will, more than likely, absorb the blog, pimp the DVD and other products, and get into a bunch of other stuff too. (Yep, I already own that domain.)

Thanks for asking!!!

I was gonna do that today but, after 12 hours in that heat yesterday, I couldn't muster the energy. I still feel energy-sapped. Spoke to others who were with me Sunday and they all report the same in terms of being wiped all day today. Working tomorrow, but it should be a reasonable day, time-wise, so maybe I can write it up later in the day or early eve tomorrow.

Yeah I rested today too. Digging in that heat really takes it out of you.

I'm sure we'll either be shipping internationally or the DVD will be available from oversea's distributors and/or retailers.
