It has been quite a while since I first meet Ross at the Rocks Market in Sydney Australia. I could not walk past without noticing a few people trying on his masks and having so much fun taking pictures of each other. Of course I tried a few of them too and they were so interesting that I ended up buying one myself. The masks were so unique and entertaining, but the most important part of the experience was the guy selling it, Ross Brown. In talking to him I discovered that he was also the maker and I found myself asking questions about this interesting business and about his life. So here its. One of the most exciting stories I have had the pleasure of telling.
During this project I didn't have access to a large variety of lenses and cameras so I tried to prove the point that you don't need much to be able to capture a story.
lenses: Canon 70-200 f.2.8 L series (the only zoom lens I've got with beautiful compression and sharpness)
Canon 24mm L series (used just during interview for the wide angle)
Zeiss 50mm (definitely the most used lens on the shoot. I love the variety of shots you can get with
stabilisation system: manfrotto tripod 501 used only for the interview bits.
manfrotto monopod HDV used for the entire shoot. God I love that device. It allows me to
be versatile on my angle and framing especially while Im using a 50mm Zeiss.
audio system: sennheizer ew100G3. It has never let me down. I use them for events and corporate shoots
I hope you enjoy getting to know the process of making masks as much as I did.
