One more assignment to Florida in the hunt for cement mixer photographs took me to this company that had both trucks and a plant that were all part of the shoot. It was hot and humid, and for the first shot I wanted to wet down the pavement for a dramatic reflection.
Next I followed one mixer to a job site …
The site was wide open and offered me quite a bit of room to maneuver for the shots that put the truck in full sun while it was pouring concrete.
When the concrete was shown flowing down the chute, the client’s preference was to have a slow enough shutter speed to allow the full texture of the concrete to show up in the image.
