I’m working a a few projects for local fitness trainer Moritz from “BASIS Karlsruhe” at the moment, he needs some high resolution photos for life sizes print. And his first request was a handstand….
I remember the first time I saw a the original Sunpak 120J I knew that they had me in mind when they designed it, but it just sold for crazy money second hand on E-Bay. Then a while ago several flash manufactures caught onto the idea and started making barebulb strobes in the similar style and you could say a few generation of flash was born…..
First off I want to thank Ulli and Marlen for jumping in last minute when my other model couldn’t make it. As is often the case with my Monday night shoots I was joined by another photographer this time fellow lightGIANT Tom bought his Leica …..
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….
