THE TRIAL by AurumLight Studio

AurumLight Team goes Epic … and Naughty !

We strongly believe that if you are driven by your passion, willing to work hard and always go the Extra Mile you can make your dreams comes true!
This shoot is one of those dream assignments and we really enjoyed working to make it all happen.

“THE TRIAL” is one of our recent conceptual photoshoots which we accomplished here in London and will become a limited calendar which will contain 12 final frames.
We are posting just part of the work here and the complete calendar will be available only in a very limited print.

It’s great to work on a big budget shoot, but the real challenge is to use all your assets and work every frame to a minimum cost!
Because of that I have decided to share a Behind-The-Scenes Video, showing you every detail of our work, from the initial sketch to the final photographs from the day.

“THE TRIAL” – Behind The Scenes video:

This video was made to show you that if you are willing to do all of that – anything is possible – and the only one limitation is in your head… your own imagination!

That shoot differences from our other projects because it is actually the first one which was from day one planned as Black & White and we finally had the pleasure to work on a Phase One camera with P65+ Digital Back, and I absolutely love it!
It is a game changer for me, but I will write more about that on a different occasion.

Last but not least!
The outcome is a result of a very hard work from everyone in the AurumLight Team, and I am really fortunate to work with such passionate and hyped individuals!

I hope you will enjoy the pictures!

    That must have been an amazing project to work on, the final images are quality.
    Congrats on the BTS video, it makes such a change to see lots of the detail and work that went into the shoot ,and it’s so nice not to have to watch it in fast forward as some BTS vids are.

    Brilliant! I’m amazed at the work you put in behind the scenes even putting the costumes together yourself.

    Wow Jarek you are seriously easing the bar with your work. I love the concept and the delivery is not to far from perfection. Really inspirational stuff and a benchmark to strive too.

    Keep up the great work my friend and would be nice to catch up for a drink and a chat in the near future.

    My Gosh, this is really amazing! Everything from the concept, to the shoot, the posing and making every single detail of the production a reality. And the boldness of posting not only the final product, but the entire process. I take my hat off to you!
    Inspirational to say the least, it really got my mind rolling into a new set of ideas and possibilities.

    Thanks Guys for your comments and emails! I really appreciate all of them!

    @ Keith, Thanks I am really happy that you enjoyed the BTS!

    @ Paulo, ;-] Whatever it takes! Always!

    @ Gary, Thanks, I will try to beat that with my new concept!

    @ Rocke, It is great to hear that our work is an inspiration – that is probably the biggest compliment I could hear! Many thanks for that!

    Thanks for checking !

    Hi Jaroslav – Stunning images! Found your blog through 500px! You produce some of the most outstanding images I have ever seen! The work that goes into realising the concept is exemplified well in your movie and – it makes me wish I had chosen a different career – not that at 58 it is too late! I rarely wish I could have been someone else but in your case I make an exception! Following your posts will be a unique pleasure! Cheers, John.

    Ditto to all the above comments…
    Inspirational isn’t really a powerful enough word.
    I’ll leave it at that and just say
    “Thank You Jaroslav”
    and congratulations…..
