Behind the Scenes with Betsy Hansen Photography, LLC

One of the things I never seem to have time for, but absolutely LOVE to do is capture what goes on behind the scenes, especially when I am in a unique location. I made a point to have my second camera set up with my 50mm lens at this shoot, just to use as a BTS camera. We were at the Wayne Densch Performing Arts Center photographing clothing from Camy Couture Orlando for Lake Mary Healthy Living Magazine.

There were a couple of fun last minute surprises, including Mosaic Marketing Solutions, who came to get behind the scenes video for an augmented reality piece for the magazine's app. WKMG Channel 6 also sent a camera man to film the shoot for a local news piece. I wore a mic for the piece while we were shooting the first two looks. It's an out of the ordinary experience wearing a mic for over an hour. I felt like I had to watch what I said. I was most worried about saying something absolutely ridiculous that the editing crew would have to edit out later; I'm sure they get a great laugh occasionally!

Hopefully I will be able to share more of these behind the scenes photos with you in the near future.


 


Lauren with BMG Models


I couldn't get over Lauren's "That's Awesome" shirt. What a fun way to cheer on our crew!


Todd, Videographer from Mosaic Marketing Solutions.


Smile, Todd!


Props from the prop room that I pulled out for the models to play with.
You'll see these again in one of the final shots.


Alien Bees.  BZZZZ!

The very organized electrical non-hazards, backstage just behind the stage curtain. 


I love this intimate view of Ali putting the finishing touches on Lauren's hair.


I couldn't resist myself when Renee Blair pointed out this paper mache corn in the prop room! YES! It was not used in the photos.
I pulled it out merely for my own amusement.
