For Canada’s 150th birthday, photographer Jessica Deeks had the pleasure of photographing Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau for Maclean’s Magazine.
Here’s more from Jessica below, for the full write-up detailing the experience visit her blog at: http://jessicadeeks.blogspot.ca.
We had only half of his office to use since there was a video crew setting up on the other side, and we were also scheduled to shoot in the same time block as the interview! Being tethered was a must in a high-stakes situation like this, where we are only given 4-5 minutes with the Prime Minister and I was shooting at a very shallow depth of field. My assistant would check focus, give me the green light, and I’d stay locked in to a particular composition to shoot off a number of frames. Then we would take a look at the monitor, assess, change posing, and re-focus before commencing shooting again. We would not have been able to do this shooting to card, and I would never want to when using such a wide aperture on a Nikon D800 sensor!
