For this shoot I wanted to capture a very moody, dramatic action sequence in Stanley Park. After discussing the vision with the client, I started working out all of the logistics of a shoot like this. My goal was to shoot an action sequence with a Panoramic HDR (High Dynamic Range) of detail and colour information. This is so that I could maximize colour saturation, detail and overall image quality.

One of the biggest challenges I faced was to capture the fog and ambience from the fog machine along with the lighting for the subject as well as shoot multiple frames for the panoramic HDR background. I went with a fairly simple lighting set up by only using 1 key light and adding a bounce to fill in some of the shadow information.
