Hybrid Photography: A Hybrid eProduct for Team Photos

Could This Be the New Face of the Old “Team” Photo?

For the last 7 years I’ve photographed our high school’s downhill ski race team for the yearbook. It’s fun and the athletes are high energy. I’ve always wanted to capture their spirit and the still image only came close. This year I did it up hybrid style and this is the result.

I’m thinking on how I can make this into an easy to shoot template so it’s efficient to create each time with larger or smaller groups.

Shot with Lumix GH3 & two LED panels. Produced in ProShow Web.

About the Author:

After 20+ years in a computer tech job, Carol Schlintz is enjoying a second and more fulfilling career as a portrait and sports photographer in suburban Milwaukee. Like many of us, she has met with some personal challenges and is in need of reducing the physical strain from carrying heavy pro cameras and lenses around. Not one to take "no" for an answer, she jumped in with both feet and no safety net. As of April 2012 Carol has retired her big DSLR's and picked up a couple of small, light mirrorless cameras and is now using them on every shoot. Vlogging here on discovermirrorless, as well as sharing and swapping ideas with the other Hybrid Heroes (and the viewers!) is part of her process of evolving from a still photo only photographer into a photo+video+audio hybrid image maker. Count on Carol to share what works, what doesn't, and all the steps in becoming Milwaukees first hybrid photography studio that specializes in making and selling eProducts.

    Great hybrid e-product could you please share some info on what lens you use and recommend. Thanks, great work and a wonder inspiration to all of us mirrorless camera users.

  3. Thanks… The gear was a Lumix GH3 with the Lumix 12-35 f2.8 lens. I was on a tripod. Used 2 small LED panels (the Manfrotto 840 with 84 leds and a Fotodiox with ~200 leds) on light stands. In camera mic (wish that I had been able to use my external mic, but it was raining/sleeting and I didn’t want to risk it). For processing I use Lightroom for organizing and selecting the stills, Photoshop to add the border to the team photo (since that one was also submitted to the year book). To slice the video into pieces I used ScreenFlow. Final production was done in ProShow Web. If I left anything out or you want to ask other questions you may leave them here or contact me directly at cschlintz@MindWorksPhotography.com.
