Video: Zack Arias Walks Through a Photo Shoot From Beginning to End

In the above behind the scenes, notable photographer Zack Arias takes us behind the scenes for a first-hand perspective of how a photo shoot goes down for him, from beginning to end.

Arias starts off the video where most of us would start off when getting ready for a shoot; with the gear. After giving a run-down of the gear – which does come across as quite a bit of name-dropping – and explaining why he chose what he did, he gives us some insight into the shoot itself, explaining the project so we have a better understanding of what it is he needs to capture.

The video unfolds from there, taking us through the shoot, almost as though we’re there. Once the shoot is complete and he’s packed up, Arias heads back to his lab to show us what post-processing will be done to the images, complete with the toolset and workflow he’s using.

It’s a thorough behind the scenes look at how a shoot of a photographer such as Arias goes down, from beginning to end. At just under 20 minutes, it’s not short, but it’s extremely insightful and well worth the watch.

You can head on over to Arias’s YouTube channel and website for more wonderful tutorials and tidbits. If you’d like to see the project that was being documented, you can check it out here.
