One of my first athletic shoot and Behind the Scenes videos, this CrossFit shoot was something I wanted to do for a long time. I loved shooting in a dark, grungy style at the time and the CrossFit scene really seemed to fit that mold well, so I reached out to a local Box (CrossFit gym) that I was familiar with and set up a test shoot with a couple of the athletes that worked out there. My intention was to get some different movements that I thought would translate well and try to change things up some between individual and group shots. My wife shot some great Behind the Scenes footage while we created the images, and what I love the most about this set is that I did it with some of my original equipment. No high dollar stuff here, just my original Canon 40D camera, some mid-range lenses and the cheapest Paul C Buff lights I could afford to get my hands on. Use what you have and just get out there and create!
