So the cazy season is over an it time to catch up with lots and lots of shoots. Marcel is a model I spoke to about part of a black and white set I want to work on over 2015 using different models (but I’ll talk about that latter).
Last week I was in the studio with Natascha to finally start a project I have wanted to do for a long long time. To re shoot classic painted portraits mostly from the Dutch and Flemish golden age of painting. My First attempt was to shoot the girl with the pear earring by Johannes Vermeer.
This week I was in the studio with Elena Sophie and Thorsten as I wanted to have some new material to blog. Most the stuff I have been shooting over the last 6 months has either been private shoots or product shoots, so my own personal ranting and raving (aka blog) was neglected over this period. My concept for the shoot was a minimalist lighting look with one 60x80cm soft-box in close and if needed 1 other light source.
Time to catch up on some of the shoots I’ve been in the last 6 weeks. Ill start off with Linda, originally I wanted to get out of the studio but the weather just didn’t let us.
I have quite a few shoots on at them moment and wont have time to blog them all but I’ll do my best to blog as much as I can especially the lighting setups
Nina jumped in last minute to fill in ….. and saved the day. So before I do any more thanks so much.
A while back I saw some cool photos using colour gels as a foreground, I wanted to use this idea and push it a bit further. But first I had to work out how exactly to light it for the affect I was looking for.
I meet Sarah Tam when she modelled at one of out lightGIANTS Friday night workshops. But like all the workshops I don’t really get much of a chance to shoot, just do lighting tests. But we got talking and threw a few ideas back and forth. Unfortunately it took us a few months to find a date where we both had time….
The end of the year draws near and I have so much I want get finished (including 6 or 7 blog entries). Nina was in the studio a few weeks ago for a “Light Blaster” shoot as I had a few more ideas to test out.
