My camera lights created a wide beam of light, allowing for pretty decent short-distance pictures. Not strong enough to pass the message.
I shook my photo equipment to get their attention, immediately struck by the grotesque ineffectiveness of this signal.
After clipping my camera to a D-ring I reached for my compact backup light. Fortunately, after a couple of strong kicks I caught the attention of one of my teammates.
A question lingered in my mind: how to reconcile photography and filming with communication?
