“Ju-els” & “Roman Beauty”

Hi there,

Today we would like to share a few images from our latest shoot which we did with the same team of people who worked on “La-Vander Shadow” post below.

This time we went for “Roman Beauty” look:



And a classic “Ju-els” beauty look:




This is second time that we have used the Paul C Buff Alien Bees lights B1600 – we will keep them for the tests for another month. So far I am really surprised and pleased with the quality and ease of use.
I have read a lot about the colour constancy issue but we haven’t experienced any this as yet

Hope you like it, please watch this space there is more to come.




Aurum Lighting Studio have great pleasure in welcoming on board  Katkinoko who is an extra talented wig designer and professional but not only that a fantastic person.

We strongly recommend her to anyone who is looking for not only a team player but who has amazing creative input!
(we also love her rates… but be quick I have a feeling she will become very busy quite soon!)

Below you can see Kat in action as she is preparing the gorgeous model Cristina who you have already met ‘on the roof’ a few posts below

We had a very busy Saturday, and I still have loads of material to edit, so watch that space there is more to come.

And here you can see the effects of our effort on the day:







Hi there,

It’s been a while since my last post…

Last weekend I went to meet a few good people from the London Strobist Group and I did a test shoot with a  few of the models who attended the event hoping to find the right person for our next project…

The weather was fantastic so I abandoned the studio and we took the advantage of the accessible rooftop and played with and against the sun.

The day went smoothly and the models were great. I will add that in the near future I will work with one of the girls from the photos below on my new up and coming project…

…well as soon I’ll finish the storyboard ;-]  I am very excited! …About the story board that is and project that is ;-]

So watch this space

C&C Welcome!

Whatever I do, I always give my best.
That is why I love to shoot sportsmen doing any kind of sport.

There is something magical about watching passionate people pushing their body to the limits.

Today’s shot is a picture of my friend Simone  – a great dedicated swimmer – during the preparation for her third Triathlon.

All the best to the people who like to push themselves and never give up!


Hey Guys!

We are engaged!! :-)

Yes, it’s true and we are both very excited! I was so excited that I decided to use it to my advantage and shoot another Poster for fun! Any excuse I know!

Today we deconstruct the lighting for this Poster:

It worked out pretty well with just three lights – two stripboxes for the rim on the sides and back and one small sofbox from the front

The photo was taken on seamless, for the BG we used a bunch of Christmas lights which were added in the postproduction .
Here is the original

… I have a few more posters already in the pipeline – this is fun !



For the next instalment of the Movie posters Variations  series I thought I will go for superhero theme :-]
At the moment I am watching “Heroes” TV series  so I will give it a go :-]

She’s a Bad-Ass

For energy balls I shoot few [quite a lot actually] soap bubbles bursts.
Shots below were taken with 1/400s, 1/800, 1/1000 of a second – using all this Hi-Speed WooDoo ;-D.

Then I moved to the subject ; -) my favourite part!

Plus dramatic sky – which is not a  problem here in London ; -D

Then some mixing in Potatoshop ; -) and voilà:

Hope you guys like it.

To Be continued…
