There’s a story behind this shirt – 100 years ago, in September 1915, Dundee’s local army regiment The Black Watch suffered their cruellest day at the Battle of Loos – 57% of their soldiers who took part were killed, something that hit the city and surrounding areas badly where nearly everyone was affected by the loss of a relative or friend. Dundee would wear this kit against Ross County on 26th September the nearest match to the anniversary of the battle to salute the memory of ‘Dundee’s own’.
Took a couple of portraits while Dundee’s transfer deadline signings spoke to the press – one lit by flash and one not.
First up is striker Rhys Healey who is on loan at Dens from Cardiff City.
Shot with a Canon 5d MkIII and 70-200 f2.8L lens (zoomed to 165mm) – Rhys was lit by a Canon 550ex pointed straight up at the white portion of the ceiling – Shutter speed is 1/200th of a second and aperture is f2.8 – Auto ISO which is limited by flash firing to ISO 400
Shot a portrait of young Canadian goalkeeper Danny Paton-Cavanagh on the pitch at Dens Park.
Canon 1D MkII and Canon 50mm f1.8 lens at f13 – Lit by Canon 430ex at 45 degree angle to right of camera – on full power. Flash fired by Yongnuo RF-602 wireless flash trigger
