Kiewit Corpus Christi Shoot

Just back from a quick shoot for Kiewit corporation. Kiewit is a large construction company headquartered in Omaha, NE. They have several specialties: highway construction accounts for around 50% of their business, water treatment, off-shore building, and other disciplines make up the other 50%.

I have shot assignments for Kiewit in the past, highway construction near Jackson Hole, WY and helicopter aerials of Interstate 10 in Florida after a hurricane distorted a 3 mile section of the highway. This particular assignment I'm writing about had to do with the off-shore building yard in Corpus Christi. At this location, Kiewit constructs off shore drilling platforms. These structure are huge!

My assignment was to shoot a background image for a capabilities brochure and various other detail shots of steel and other building materials. The background image will be combined with an image of a worker shot later in Omaha.

Light Painting

Here is a new light painting exercise done in my backyard. This is a 30 second exposure at f11 or so. I used a small camping flashlight. Hope you like it.
