AO Explore // An Interview on the Beach: A Navy SEAL and his Dog

Last week we traveled to Coronado, California to film a story for Life of Duty about a Navy SEAL and his dog. This is no ordinary dog. ‘Chopper’ is highly-trained and battle tested. See him on the sidewalk, and you may not see anything more than a well-trained German Shepard (part wolf), but get to know him and his owner, Trevor, more and you’ll find out that Chopper has been deployed with Trevor numerous times and has saved lives.
In order to capture Trevor in an environment he’s comfortable with, we decided to interview him on near the pier at Imperial Beach. This presented a fair amount of changes, but the results were worth it. Outside of dealing with the sand and moisture in the air, the primary challenge was light. Without a power source we went to our battery powered Comer lights. The lights filled in Trevor’s face and as the sun went down behind Trevor, became our primary light source.
Here’s a close up look at Trevor and our basic light set up.

The setup as the sun went down behind the pier.

We started filming the interview around 5:00pm, and you an see the light change as the sun went down. The Canon C100's allowed for some amazing dynamic range in this shot.

Here's a few more photos from the shoot
