Behind The Scenes of The Milk Workshop in Oslo, Norway

We are back from the Milk Workshop in Oslo, and what an amazing event it was!

Another meet-up in Scandinavia and you have probably noticed that we are keep coming back to the same places, or rather catching up with the same lovely people.

There are a few spots in the world that make me feel like at home and in Norway we are always hosted by the great folks at IkonStudio.

Per and his group of assistants are very much like our London crew and working with them always makes you push the envelope and make something amazing happen!

And with the support from our partners at the StudioImport, our participants could use the best gear available out there.

We had a real beast in house… in the shape of PhaseOne FX Camera + IQ3 100MPx Digital back

…and quite exciting new HENSEL CITO 500 Lights. These bad boys are really fast and I will talk about them more in the near future!

Couple of years ago at IkonStudio we did this illustration for the Splash Heroes calendar and may I add it was the only image in the calendar that was done in the workshop environment, all others were accomplished at our London studio, in the very much controlled environment.

Having all that in mind we have decided to run with the most challenging concept to date and we took participants right to the centre of commercial-scale photoshoot involving milk, a pool , models and loads of creative vibes!

Here you can see PhaseOne XF hanging 5 meters above what in a few minutes became a pool of milk…

…well, the usual day at the studio…

Participants as always could test their ambition as a Milk dress designers and after the presentation shoot, they took the main stage.

We topped the event with a day worth of a postproduction process and after over 8h of mind bending we send our photographers homes to work on their future milky projects!

I am glad everyone was happy and got home safely as some of the people travelled from a faraway places like Paris or Los Angeles! I here salute you guys!

It was great to meet old friends and make new ones, and I am sure we will be back soon!

oh, last but not least.. as an avid reader of Jo Nesbø I couldn’t missed the occasion to visit Harry Hole’s watering hole – Restaurant Schroder in Oslo!
Great food and cool people inside – totally recommending that place.

P.S. For those who are asking about potential future events – it looks like you will meet us this year in Cologne, Germany and potentially at the begging of the 2018 in Australia (and I hope) USA!

Hope to see you there!

Cheers
Jaroslav

So long, MR Buff !

I received a very sad news last night.

A great and talented man – Paul Conrad Buff – founder of PaulCBuff Inc. sadly passed away.

A true inventor, talented, hardworking and all round great man.
You can read more about Paul here on the PCB website >>

Paul was quite a special person to me.

As creatives we try to stay focused, work hard and always on top of our game.
But as many know this can be a tiresome journey and not necessarily a rewarding one, at least not for a while.

I do believe that by applying yourself and working harder than other people you can make your dreams a reality…

Paul was exactly that and what’s more important, he understood likeminded people.

I remember as if it were yesterday, around five years ago Paul contacted me directly and said “I love your work, and would like us to work together. How can we help”

I wish that everyone could meet someone like Mr Buff who will simply believe in your efforts and push you in the right direction.

At that time a lot of elements fall into right places for me and I knew that I must did something right and so I decided to try even harder.

Paul gave me and my work an important momentum.

Who knows, maybe I would get where I am anyway, and maybe not.
What I am sure of is that he gave me that kick-start at the very right time in my journey that I will always be grateful for. That bit of oxygen that every runner needs when they hit the wall…

Through the years we worked on many more occasions. His attitude and personal approach that is also an ethos of his company and staff, made that connection very real.

Sometimes life is as simple and beautiful like that.

I hope that you will meet a beautiful soul on your path, as I was privileged to!

So long, MR Buff!
You were and still are a true inspiration!

I am sending my condolences and love to Paul’s wife Deborah, his family, and entire crew at PCB Inc.

Jaroslav & AurumLight Team!

AurumLight – Milk Calendar 2015 – SPLASH HEROES

Before we go into details I need to acknowledge that we were very moved by your reaction to last year’s calendar “MILKY PINUPS 2014”.
I would like to say thank you to everyone who purchased a copy or shared a kind word!
It means the world to us and makes our work possible!

Milky Pinups was well received and in effect became a national Ad Campaign in USA for Coca Cola’s Fairlife Milk and we couldn’t have been happier about it!

.

SPLASH HEROES 2015 – The Concept

This time we wanted to make a very relaxed and colourful series… simply, something really cool!

Since the Milky Bamboo Forest Fight Shoot we knew we wanted to come back to that idea and explore colours in liquids in depth!

We often hear from people that if you have a great idea you should try to get celebrities on set to make it really special…

I remembered that advice soon after the Bamboo Forest shoot when I was giving a seminar in California. Afterwards we met with our producers actor friends in Hollywood and we were visiting their place, we entered a special room with a great display wall full of fantastic action figures.
When he was showing them to us, I saw what passion he had and in that instant moment it was clear to me what we would do for our next project.

And as you probably know… you don’t need celebrities in your work… go for concepts that people are passionate about including these well known!

So this year’s calendar is our personal tribute and a milky parody of the heroes genre!

.

The Calendar:

It is my pleasure to introduce you this year’s AurumLight 2015 Milk Calendar, titled SPLASH HEROES, featuring 12 extraordinary Ladies with quite special Liquid powers!

HOW WAS IT DONE:

This project was photographed over 5 intensive shooting days .
As usual it was very messy, especially with different colours.
Milk was coloured with pigments and food colourisers to match the concepts.
The biggest challenge was to accomplish a specific shapes for the illustrations.

In terms of the Gear:
We were shooting on three different cameras: Nikon D800, Phase One IQ280, Phase One IQ240
Mounted on my favourite Manfrotto tripod platform.
Lighting, modifiers and other bits can be seen in the short behind the scenes video below with the full animated lighting diagram!

>> SPLASH HEROES << AurumLight 2015 Milk Calendar – Behind The Scenes Video

Thank you to all of you who purchased our AurumLight 2014 Milk Calendar – MilkyPinups!
It means a lot to us and makes what we do possible.

Unfortunately we have run out of Milky PinUps Calendars as this was only a limited edition we quickly sold out.

But I have some great news for you!
We are currently working on Milky Calendar for 2015 and it will be available for pre-order in a few months.

The new theme will be inspired by the Milky Bamboo Forest Fight that we did some time ago. I thought we should look in that direction.
There is something special about powerful heroines. It is an exciting concept with a lot of creative potential. This will be my personal tribute and milky parody of special characters…

So for AurumLight 2015 Milk Calendar – we will create universum of >> SPLASH HEROES <<

We will go above and beyond. Experiment with colours of the liquid, shapes, and lighting.
I am sure it will be a great challenge and you will love it too!

>> SPLASH HEROES << AurumLight 2015 Milk Calendar – January

Some time ago we were approached by German TV, PRO Sieben to let them film us during our work. I thought the SPLASH HEROES series will be perfect for it.

A few weeks later we had the crew of Galileo Show in London and here is their document from the day that was aired earlier this month.

That was a great weekend and we have some really cool illustrations. In a couple of weeks we are making the second round and in May we will bring one of our SPLASH HEROES ladies to Frankfurt for our Milk Workshop on 17-18th May.
