MEMBER MONDAY FEATURING MARK RUDDICK
It’s Monday and that means it’s time for another Member Monday where we put the spotlight on a KelbyOne member and feature some of their work.
This week, we’re introducing Mark Ruddick, a fitness and bodybuilding photographer based out of London, Ontario. Mark has photographed for United Boxing Promotions, Adrenaline MMA, Salita Promotions, Natural Bikini Magazine, and many more!
The photo below is the image we’re featuring—take a look and keep reading to get the details behind the photo and to get to know the artist who created this piece of art!
ABOUT THE PHOTO
This image was taken in a gym during a fitness shoot. I was setting up the lights for posing in the squat rack for some action shots. The model Abby was walking through the rack as I was working on the lights beside it. I saw this basic composition and yelled stop in the middle of a crowded gym. I adjusted a few things and we got the image. Less than 5 fives to set up.
GEAR AND SOFTWARE
Gear-wise, my Canon 7D mk2 and a Tamron 24-70 2.8. It was a single light setup, camera left 45 degrees to the model. There were a bank of mirrors behind the model, bouncing the light in behind. In fact, there were mirrors almost everywhere bouncing and re-bouncing light. Paul. C Buff Einstein with a gridded softbox.
I primarily shoot fitness and fights.
This image pre-dates my awareness of KelbyOne.
