What do you get when you add two badass photographers? Sick pictures of course. This is one of the reasons I like to work with my friend, an amazing photographer, poet, model, sportsman and all around joker.
A freestlye studio project in the winter is like sunshine. It gives you life after the harsh realities of the job you do everyday. Even if that is photography as well. That is why I became enthusiastic about this project Dani mentioned. It involved him as a model. We’d do a fashion shoot, then we’d loose our sanity and paint his face.
The shots were inspired by existing photos, but I already knew I wouldn’t be able to copy other photographers, so I let it go, and do the stuff I’m good at. Fun fact: The concept was a black and white series, so the picture style in my camera was set B/W. However when I started looking at the colors in the negatives I decided that I’m gonna stick to the color versions. Of course I edited them. After a basic edit, I changed the color scheme to be a bit more dramatic and cinematic. Obviously I have to show you a black and white image that I played around with, adding a logo, so it resembles a magazine ad.
At the second part of the shoot the face paint came on. As it was our first time applying such a thing, it took a bit more time than we anticipated, but we had time to do some shots with them. Now that I see the color versions, I’ll insist using color face paint next time.
