Toll Global Logistics, Tasmania were taking delivery of 5 new Volvo trucks, and the day of their delivery would be the only time they would be all available off the road, clean and in one place. I was given an afternoon and evening to get the image required, for Volvo Trucks Australia, their distributor Webster Trucks, and their client Toll Global Logistics.
After a weather, sunset time and direction check using the LightTrac app, the trucks were carefully lined up. Shooting on the 80MP Phase One IQ280 digital back on a Phase One 645DF+ camera, I shot multiple images for optimum sky, reflections and chrome, for later compositing. As it got darker I directed my assistant with a single Profoto B1 500 AirTTL Battery Powered Flash head and beauty dish to work along, lighting selected aspects of each truck individually. The final image was composited from between 10-15 images.
