A Few From the Fire House

Nothing tip-related, tutorial-esque, or educational today, just thought I’d share some photos from one of the local photo clubs I participate in regularly.  One of our members is the on-staff photographer, and was able to get us permission to take photos for an entire session.  We even got one of the guys to get in his gear and do some shots with us.  Devin is the guys name and he totally was cool with our posing instructions and everything – this guy even kept this super heavy fire hose on his shoulder for like 30 minutes while we had him stand and pose, looking in various directions and holding his head a certain way.

So, without further ado – here’s a few samples/selects from what I am affectionately calling:

The Fire House Shoot

Fire House 1

Fire House 2

Fire House 3

Fire House 4

Fire House 5


And to close out the series, one that struck me while there was a scene that reminded me of why we have these courageous men to serve and protect us…

Fire House 6


The poses that Devin struck were directed courtesy of yours truly (stop back in later this week for more details on the posing techniques I used), and all post processing was done using your favorite photo editor (and mine):  Adobe Lightroom!

Adobe Lightroom 3

Thanks to Tim Tonge for organizing the event, and to the brave men of Castle Rock Firehouse for tolerating our presence for an afternoon!

    I really like this mini series of photos Jason! I’ve had aspirations for quite some time to try something similar with the Police force up here 🙂

    The one thing I’d like to comment on though is the 2nd photo. The dodging of the EMS symbol on the right kinda throws the whole image out of whack for me. Otherwise a great set!
