Sorry for the dramatic title but I have a project starting this week.
I have contacted a mortician and I am going to shoot an "article" surrounding the job.
Current idea is to angle it towards a "dirty job". Looking to get some shots at the creamatorium and hopefully some ashes.
Graveyard, Caskets and perhaps church. Definately some portraits of the morticians and if I am lucky and get around the legal stuff(and prays it wont bite me in the ass) some shots of the recently deceased.
I want to do all of this professionally and respectfully.
At the same time my article has to be angled towards the "dirty job". I am shooting this for my worksample which is needed with my University application.
I just need to hear some input on what would work and what not, figuring that people on POTN seem to have so much experience from so many things I would love to get some input.
Bringing the 17-40, 50mm and 5d. Perhaps a speedlight, what do you think of using a tripod getting some long exposures with perhaps people walking past.
Getting some sort of ghosty feeling?
Shooting this on wednesday and would love some feedback from someone else.
