After finally finding my way out of the labyrinth that was “made in china world” I set of to find Ben and Teymur, all I knew was that they were somewhere… And as fate would have it as I was on the going down escalator there they were passing by on the opposite escalator going up …
Having a chance to catch up with the guys was great, they were there working for Manfrotto and dragged me along with them to the RED camera stand which seem like a good idea at the time….

Not long ago in a galaxy not so far away, I had the chance to photograph one of the “501 German Garrison” Darth Vaders. That costume was a 100% true remake of the Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith Vader costume. The time was the costume was a 100% accurate version of Darth Vader in Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope. To be honest I was kind of excited as a big Star Wars fan, a new hope was the first film I ever saw at the cinema as a kid. I also wanted to time this shoot for Star Wars celebration this weekend

Day of the Dead (Spanish: Día de Muertos) is a Mexican holiday celebrated throughout Mexico and around the world in other cultures. The holiday focuses on gatherings of family and friends to pray for and remember friends and family members who have died. It is particularly celebrated in Mexico, where it is a national holiday, and all banks are closed. The celebration takes place on November 1 and 2, in connection with the Catholic holidays of All Saints’ Day and All Souls’ Day. Traditions connected with the holiday include building private altars honouring the deceased using sugar skulls, marigolds, and the favourite foods and beverages of the departed and visiting graves with these as gifts. They also leave possessions of the deceased.

Chiaroscuro (Italian for “light/dark”)

Alica and I had planed to shoot together last year but due to complications it unfortunately never happened, so I took this opportunity to catch up.

Last Monday nights shoot idea was based around using one key light in the same position. I didn’t want to change the position, power output or the aperture of my camera, simply change the light-modifiers to have a 100% comparison between Soft-Box VS Beauty-Dish.
