Desktop Wallpaper: Charlie Crumlish by Gutstains

There’s no shortage of ditch spots in Texas and when Chuck told us he was taking us to MegaDitch™, I figured it could make for a good photo and Guts was on board to shoot this wallpaper.

We met up rather late and rode the spot for a minute before starting to setup for the shot as the light was quickly fading. The dark sky made the photo super dramatic and I love the contrast between that and the gum tire.

Guts is a lowkey technophile who knows how to get the most out of the least equipment. He knows all the tips and tricks to squeeze every stop of light out of a Sunpak 555 flash and he knows how they work inside and out. To spread coverage across this huge (huuuuuge) ditch spot, he tripled up the 555’s (thus creating a 1665) and pointed each in a different general direction. It’s nothing short of amazing that he got light from corner to corner in the frame.

Here’s how it all went down-

matti by paul 640

Matti called me saying he’d found a carpark for us to try and shoot some pictures, so that evening we went and checked it out with the usual thought of we’d get a couple of pics before security asked us to leave. Just as I was setting up my flashes a security woman walks onto the level, she walks over and asks what we were doing, we explained, instead of asking us to leave she said “oh cool” and watched for a while. As the carpark was empty and dark, I wanted to try capture this and also emphasize how flatlanders are elusive mysterious creatures. My set up for this shot was really simple as I could use the markings on the floor to know when Matti was rolling into the right spot, 2x Canon 430EXII on 1/4 power @ 50mm set either side but slightly infront of Matti as to not light his front up too much, I used my 24-105 lens @ 105mm on my Canon 6D. As I remember we only took a couple of shots of this trick before we got this one which was a result.”
