Do you want to understand your camera and take great photos today?

Yes Please

Veteran Getty shooter Streeter Lecka will be on the ground in London to capture the games in all their athletic glory. Shooting a wide range of events, there’s enough kit in the bag to shoot the lot.

Lets have a look at what’s in the bag:

  • Two Canon 1D Xs
  • Two Canon 1D Mark IV’s
  • A monster 400mm f/2.8 lens
  • Two 70-200mm lenses
  • A 16-35mm F/2
  • A 15mm fisheye
  • A Canon 580 EX II flash gun
  • 4 Pocket Wizards
  • Lots of 8 and 4GB memory cards

My favorite part from the whole interview over on PopPhoto (one of my top 20 photography websites), was about the workflow. Being the tech geek that I am, I’m fascinated with how the photographer goes from images on a card, to publication in such a small amount of time. Here’s what he has to say:

Getty has our own lines that are hardwired into every single event. Our tech crew came over months before to get an idea of where we’d be shooting. We can just plug in and send from there. The editors are in the media center where they can send it out immediately.

I have a backpack everyday with a computer and a card reader. When I plug it into the wire, push in the card, and press start, it automatically sends everything to the editors. Everything transfers to my computer as well. I also bring a separate little hard drive so I can back up everything I shoot for myself. If I want an original RAW file, I can get it if I want to.

      They can be used to trigger cameras to fire remotely. So they might put one behind a goal, and then fire it off when the ball comes through the net.
