While visiting the Topeka Fire Department today, the weather was not ideal for outdoor truck photography. Well, when you’ve got less than perfect conditions and still need to complete the assignment, then it’s time to get creative …. and maybe think a little out of the box.
I had three engines to shoot, and the need to create something different with each, though the engines were identical.
First, we shot in the rain …
Next, during a brief pause in the rain, we found an interesting neighborhood where we framed Engine 7 on this tree lined street that as littered with fallen leaves which enhanced the colors of the engine.
Then, when the rain refused to stop, we went for a totally different feel inside this modern firehouse that had plenty of room to use as a studio.
