Again a new year to look forward to.Dance and movement will take a big part in what I want to realize this year. So, if your interested to model.. just let me know ;-)
2011 can be summarized by the book 'Body Of Art' I compiled. It should have been ready just after the expo we did on February 6th. And is was more or less. Only, I had some specific pictures in mind that I needed to add. Thanks to the cooperation with Jessica (she worked for Cirque du Soleil and now for Cavalia and who know what great project will come up next for her) I could realize the images I had in mind. Add to this the images of another project and the book grew from 20 pages to +60.
During 2011 I also started the series 'Old'. Using fixed halogen light, a Tilt & Shift lens (the create the specific depth of field and unsharpness) and long shutter speed I'm searching to emulate the feeling of the glass plate photography. First impressions can be found on the site
It must have been September when I did the session for the 'Old' series with the great Victoria Rose. It was one of those shoots I will remembers because of the fun we had in creating the images. It was also one of those shoots I will remember because so many things went wrong. I tried some light setups that didn't give the result I was looking for, the tethered connection failed at the most inconvenient moment, we ran out of time so quickly, etc. In the end I got out of it what I wanted.
Hereunder the result of my studio shoot with Victoria Rose:
This series shows a typical flow of my work in studio. I start with the main project ('Old' in this case), experiment with some ideas and end the last 30 minutes with a portrait session I do with every model. Here I always use the same conditions of light, clothing and lens (60mm @ f4). Have a look at the site to see
