The shot is taken on a Nikon D700 with Nikkor 24-120mm lens, 200 ISO, using reflectors and a tiny blip of flash bounced off the built-in reflector on the Nikon SB900 which helps to balance the exposure between Michael’s portrait with the bright building in the background.
The photo for the text page in the book is a shot of some of Michael’s collection of Antique Flutes which I took in the music room of his Irish home at Castlehyde in Fermoy, Co, Cork. I realised that curtains in his Irish home were a similar colour to the wall of his LA home and that this would help the two pages blend together. I used the same Nikon camera & lens, using available light only.
Traveling to Antarctica with my 16 yr old son Rob we first spent a week in Buenos Aries, with an overnight stay at The Iguazú Falls on the Brazil-Argentina border, it’s the widest waterfall in the world (featured in the Mission, Moonraker and the most recent Indiana Jones movie). It was particularly spectacular due to recent heavy rain and the trips out on the walkways were so breathtaking that it has to make it into the “Top 10 Things to See Before You Die” list.
