Photo of the Week: Pete Brandt by Kyle Emery-Peck

This week’s photo is shot by San Francisco’s Kyle Emery-Peck.

“I had a bmx photo that I wanted to shoot with Pete where I framed him at the bottom of my composition. I get in the habit of composing riders in the top of my composition so I wanted to change it up. My friend Terry reminded me of this location in Chinatown. It was later in the day, so the sun was getting lower in the sky. It just so happened that I was shooting toward the East, so it made for great ambient light. I set up two Sunpak 555’s at 1/2 power one on the left and one on the right. I shot with Fuji Provia 100F on my Hasselblad 500c with an 80mm 2.8 I think the exposure came out to 1/500 @ f/5.6. From there I just gave Pete a target to aim, and let the Pete Brandt machine go to work. I was happy after 3 or 4 attempts. Pete is by far the most dialed flatlander to shoot. He lands the most technical tricks so consitsently that I feel good about shooting film.”

Add your photos to the Flickr photo pool for a good time, and a chance to be next week’s photo.
