Just a teaser from our latest conceptual shoot “THE TRIAL”

This was a fantastic assignment in a stunning location here in London and I hope that the teaser will whet your appetites!

We are in the process of finishing the postproduction and I cannot wait to share this material with you all, but before we publish the effects over the web I have an interesting surprise for my followers from Poland.  Especially from my home town!

Please keep an eye on the Blog, the details will follow shortly!

[…there is one more frame in the series…]

… but that one will only be available as a print at our exhibition later on this year.
So please watch this space!

 

Hope you enjoyed the pictures!
Thank you for all your emails and comments! They are really encouraging!

 

I would like to make one more note on that occasion.
Often when I speak to aspiring photographers I hear: “… oh if I only had a studio to work in…” well, please take a look on the setup shot below:

You will notice that we worked within a very limited floor area, and I am sure that most of you will find that amount of sqm at your place!
Just remember you have 360° to work with your subject it is all about CREATIVITY!

 

 

Cheers

B-Movie “THE TRAP”

Hi there!

Today I would like to share a few images from a short series called
the B-Movie “THE TRAP”,
which we did earlier this year in Brussels, Belgium under the eye of Drew Gardner.
It was a pleasure to work with great group of professional people, below you can see the effects of our effort on the day!

The concept was to bring the climate of the classic B-movies and Si-Fi thrillers.

In our story the girl must go through the forest to search for her dog that happens to be a decoy purposely enticed by …

“DEADLY DINNER” by Aurum Light Studio

I hope everyone had “interesting” Halloween this year!

We had scheduled a test shoot with a great bunch of models, MUAs and photogs organised by great Folks from London Strobist Meetup Flickr Group,
So… we decided to take advantage of the mood at that time…

Instead of typical portraits we asked the models to act a little bit for us.
We are always looking for great individuals for upcoming projects and I thought this could be a great exercise to check we can work together and are on the same wavelength…

OK, the idea was simple, but there were a few obstacles…

First – the shoot wasn’t at our studio – no problem – we took the gear and the props with us…
Second – because we couldn’t check the location I couldn’t predict what type/size of space were going to find there.
Third – we had to shoot with people we never worked before i.e models/MUAs so we couldn’t actually select the wardrobe and styling – but we wanted to make a consistent set of images… I know it is piling up…

Fourth, and the most difficult was that we couldn’t get all the models at the same time for the shoot because there were a few other togs doing their shoots in different rooms and settings…

Solution – we came up with the idea of a few concepts and if we needed more than one “actor” on the set – we were shooting Composites.

Because of that, we setup the camera on the tripod, fixed the lights, the props and we started from there…

It’s funny when you need to explain to someone how to act and there is a vampire next to you…

Here are the results of this hectic shoot, we hope you like it!
