Return of Lord Vader

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

Madam Eden V. Black

Last Monday night was Betty Pages 70th birthday. So we decided to shoot a small tribute to her and roll in history. Page was “Miss January 1955”, one of the earliest Playmates of the Month. Often referred to as the “Queen of Pinups”, her jet black hair, blue eyes, and trademark bangs have influenced artists for generations.

Picture of Dorian Gray

This week I continued my Monday night studio project with Vincent as model and Stephanie as guest  photographer. A few months ago Vincent suggested a shoot based on Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde. I jumped at the chance to do this shoot as the concept fitted will to a few ideas I have had floating around in the back of my head for a while now. It also bought back memories of when I read the book during a backpacking trip from Sydney to Perth way back in the mid 90’s. The concept behind this shoot was then to portray a journey of self destruction through light and lens choice, I also wanted to keep the lighting at around constant f8 (we actually shoot between f7.1 and 9) so that there was a continuation look and feel through out the night.

Strobist kit in a bag…

Intro

I actually didn’t intend to “win” this item on E-Bay. It was one of those ahh just bid on it for fun. And I won at half the normal kit price.

I thought it was a cool idea for a “starter kit” (which I don’t actually need, so lets call it a “booster pack”), but I also didn’t want to pay the normal E-Bay full price of 99€. I paid just over 50€ including postage. It contains all the basics a strobist kit would need, and it all packs away in one small carry bag.

Triggertrap Mobile Review ….

Intro

This is one of those cool stories that only the internet could make possible. I meet a few of the guys from Triggertraps at Photokina this year.  There had been a lot of talk about them in on of the Flickr groups I administer so I wanted to check them out. Basically a few guys thought they had a great idea but needed the start up capital. Using Kickstarter they wanted to raise $25,000 (£16,000 / €20,000) to create their first product, Triggertrap v1. But got more than they bargained with an astounding 300% of the target amount, and nearly 900 backers funded them to the tune of $75,000 (£48,000 / €60,000). The item that interested me the most is the Triggertrap Mobile, which launched in May 2012.
