#21. "RE: Moving Patrol Car, 16 mm Nikkor Fisheye on D3, Night Time ..."
In response to In response to 20


Phoenix, US
          

Peter:

Thank you for an excellent suggestion. I appreciate your continued interest in this thread. It is very helpful to me.

The primary goal of the above set of images is to obtain a view of the interior of the car while responding to a call for service. Calls for service can originate for several reasons: another officer requesting backup, a citizen calling in for help, traffic events requiring multiple officers, critical incidents involving ahootings and/or serious bodily injury, etc. The driver is in radio contact with dispatch, while the other officer is gathering location and other information about the call. Yes, it is bright and punchy, but that is necessary if it is to make it to a calendar cover or other larger format image while retaining the high image quality, contrast and "Punch".

I have ridden along many times with officers while they are responding to real calls for service. Things can get real interesting in seconds, wihle hurtling down crowded highways at high speeds.

If this were a real call, the interior would be dark with the exception of the instrument panel, radios, and computer illumination. When necessary to read something on paper, they will turn on a red overhead light which provides just enough to read by, but not so much as to destroy their night vision. The last time I shot from the interior like this was for the same department's 2008 calendar cover. We tried various combinations with the red light on and off, and when it is on it casts an unnatural red glow around the interior that does not photograph well.

We plan other shoots around a scene after they arrive at the call for service location, including warehouse districts with K9 dogs and officers, dark alleys, guns drawn, SWAT teams moving in, etc.

I have completed five separate shoots to date, with probably fifteen or more to go. Lots of room for suggestions, so please keep them coming.

Thanks again Peter ... I appreciate your help.

Regards,
