Last night, I had a photo session with TATOO band from Prijedor. They asked me to shoot some photos for their upcoming album “Digitalni Snovi” (Digital Dreams). Thanks for the courtesy of people from shopping mall “Wisa” from Prijedor who allowed us to use their space after closing.
Here is the result:
What do you think, which one is the best? 1,2 or no.3? Maybe it will be an album cover so that is the reason of square format.
Concerning a technique, it is very simple. One treadmill stairs at a shopping mall and a small strobe handheld. Exposure of 8 sec. and that’s it. Post production is minimal too. Enhancing the contrast and color. That’s for first three images.
The rest are done in underground parking lot and with available neon light.
Here is Tatoo’s first video from their new album:
I had a plan today to do a new city portrait with an extraordinary person. Please, meet Dalibor Popović – Mikša. Extremely talented person. He is a painter by profession, but also a great guitar and saxophone player. His installations can be seen across Europe and also, he plays guitar and sax in a local band called Tatoo.
I had a great idea for his portrait (at least, I believe it was a great idea),but many things went wrong so I decided to do just a formal portrait for now and to try with a CityPortrait type some other time. We both tried to organized it well but without success. But, I’ll tell you something more about it after I materialize it.
Considering this portrait, I lit it with a bare Vivitar285HV set on a 1/4 power, f8 and shutter time of 1 sec. Why such a long exposure? It was total darkness and I wanted some details in my background. I shot it without a tripod.
