I did not know what to offer my mother for mother's day.
I invited her to the firehall, she has been a firefighter for nearly 25 years, being the first female firefighter in our city.
My father was a lieutenant in the fire department, and sadly passed away in function nearly 10 years ago, ever since she became a communications and attack management lieutenant. Getting a shot in front of her favourite truck was for me the best gift I could give her.
I added a little flaring to the spinning lights as the in camera settings did not allow a proper rendering of the spinning fire lights.
Setup is as follows....
Nikon D750 + Tamron 24-70 f2.8 at f8 1/160th
Gridded octobox to the left with nikon sb-700 at 1/2 power
Bare Nikon SB700 hard right for rim ighting diagonal right
1 SB-700 with CTO 3/4 gel inside the trucks cabin aiing upward to light slightly
1 200w studio strobe high on each side to light up the edge of the fire truck and the firehall
Cactus v5 wireless triggers used to make all these fire constantly
