Chris Crisman - Rod Cross

Chris Crisman continues his behind the scenes coverage of the Heroes of Conservation project with Rod Cross, president of Pennsylvania’s Falling Spring Chapter of Trout Unlimited.

The first shoot took place early in the morning, but on dry land. For this next shoot, Chris takes to the water to capture a portrait of Rod, a fisherman who has raised over one million dollars in grants to protect Pennsylvania’s waterways.

As with the first shoot, Chris masterfully blends the ambient light and strobe, using a small softbox with a grid to light Rod, while taking advantage of the dappled afternoon sunlight.

Studio manager Robert Luessen writes, “Working in and around water all day, I have to admit I was a little nervous with our equipment. I can’t forget the shoot in Hawaii where Chris and our Canon EOS-1Ds Mark III took a tumble into a waterfall. Luckily, I stayed dry along with our lighting gear — we were wireless triggering all of our gear with our new PocketWizard Plus® III units.”
