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).
Steffen has been to the studio several times with his costumes. He has built some of the best Star Wars costumes I have ever seen, this time he was all excited to get shot in his movie accurate spider-man outfit. Unfortunately the night before the shoot he burst the zippier and couldn’t get it repaired in time. I had just finished shooting Jasmine doing her yoga and hand stands when he arrived and thought hay keep the same light set up, shoot white on white and have some fun with it.
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…..
I have had a Roundflash for a while now and enjoy its portability, ease of use and simplicity. But the funny thing is I actually end up using it off camera more then on camera, like a consolable soft-box, which is how the new version is designed to be used.
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 …..
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.
A while back I shot a vampire musical by Johann Günther which was a lot of fun. So when he ask me to shoot a few promotional photos for his upcoming musical “Fate & Failure” I jumped at the opportunity.
