Last year when I went to Berlin I had the pleasure of shooting with Widget again and despite her very busy schedule she made some time for me which I am very thankful for.
With the wonderful Franzi. I have had this idea in my head and I still need to work on it a bit until I get closer to the full idea though. I really like the outcome of this though. Love the idea of the brush-strokes on skins, when different textures, colors and so on. Funny enough last year I shot something similar to this too, which I will post soon-ish here, too. So keep an eye on the Blog.
More of Franzi! I normally don’t do a lot of editing outside of Lightroom and I hate beauty retouching beyond some very basic stuff, but sometimes it’s just fun to play around with Photoshop and test the limits of Lightroom and so on. Hope you enjoy these as much as I do.
From a series of sets with the wonderful Franzi. peace out.
Yes yes, I’m trying to be a bit funny here. Shooting with Olga was a blast and I think it shows. I am a bit busy with some personal stuff at the moment that really takes most of my energy, but the creative juices, as they say, are flowing and that process luckily helps to clear the head in between and to move forward. The goal for this year still is to shoot more. More personal and more client work. Hope you are all well and can enjoy your weekend. Teymur
End of last year I had the great pleasure of finally meeting and working with Olga Maria Kaminska. We shot a couple of beautiful sets. All shot in my “home studio”, as far as you can call it that at the moment. Hair and Makeup by the talented Katarzyna Jeziorowski. 😀 Fun times, even more fun results. Minimum to none retouching on all of them. Just don’t feel like it anymore. I hope you like them as much as I do. First set just coming up. more tk. kind regards, Teymur.
I was playing around in Photoshop a bit and trying some stuff and remembered I had these photos lying in last years Lightroom library. One thing added to the other and bandaning badabum we have a nice LoFi (80s/VHS) effect.
I really need to posts this quicker than this. Hope you like these as much as I do. A spontaneous set in an unplanned location. Planning is everything as they say, but a surprise here and there can’t hurt either.
From that very efficient and fun day last year with the wonderful Olga Kobzar. You can find the first post here. I had the idea for this the second I saw the location. I wasn’t sure how far I wanted to take the editing, but I found a good measure for my first step away from Lightroom only editing after a long long time. Obviously apart from skin retouching every now and then. Really a direction I feel very good about. I will keep exploring. get back to telling more stories, even small made up ones. more to come soon.
Last year, just by chance I stumbled over a few photo sets of Olga and knew that I wanted to work with here at some point. As luck seemed to be on my side Olga was going to be kind of close by for a photo workshop and we were able to arrange a shoot together. I am very happy with the results and I hope you will be too. Here the first set we shot. I want to talk more about photography with you guys and anyone who is interested. Communicate my process, talk about the technical side, gear, post processing…
The second set I shot with Agnes last year in Berlin. You might remember this post from a while back. Still using just one light, different room, that’s it.
As promised last week this week is going to keep bringing you more and more beautiful photos! Lets switch to color for now. If you want to see more of Leilas work, head over to her site and say hi. Have a great day!
When visiting Berlin for a trip with a friend of mine I had the pleasure of shooting with Leila. As with Nikys shoot we spent a couple of hours shooting with different outfits in a Studio space in Berlin. These are the first of a beautiful series of results. A lot more to come, including some shots from my Hasselblad 500cm and my Fuji Instax. Enjoy! Oh and make sure to visit Leilas Page for more of her work.
A spontaneous model booking, early morning light, a funky hotel room with a huge window and you are good to go. Thanks so much to Cindy for being available so short notice and early. Also to Juan Felipe for putting us in touch.
I have posted a few Teaser shots over the past few weeks and I am happy to show you the final results now. When Tina contacted me about a spontaneous shoot with two of her friends and had some ideas what they wanted and needed I was very happy to get away from all the cars and shoot some human models again for a change. I love shooting both as you know, but it’s the mix that makes it really fun. So we have three wonderful and very different female models. Two nice and also very different Locations and two…
It was a very spontaneous shoot, only took about two hours and we had a lot of fun. It was Cassidys birthday, the weather was fantastic too and went down to the Rhine as the ladies had some swimwear the wanted to be shot in. I normally am very well prepared, especially equipment wise… well… lets say I ended up with some completely wet pants. Really pleased with the results though and hope you’ll enjoy them as much as I do. Spontaneous people FTW!!! If you want to see more of Cassidy Rose and Frollein Miez, just follow the links….
Some shoots really give you a lot of opportunities to shoot a lot of different styles and so on, but it also lets you discover new techniques, materials you can use for a variety of things, like backgrounds, gobos etc. In this case I fell in love with the concrete wall in the room as a backdrop. So calm, still not bland and so many ways to play with it. So I chose the wall as a backdrop for the next photos, a three light set up, shaped as a triangle slightly turned towards Joyce, a variable ND filter and…
And we are getting close to the last set of my shoot with Joyce in Paris. After the red something more plain and simple. Its nice to challenge yourself with restrictions like only using one specific lens, not using the artificial light or just using artificial light or just limit your location and try to get the most out of it. You can use textures, shapes, colors, perspective, props and so much more. And I think post production is also a good way to spice it up. I never have been a huge fan of photoshopping your photos to death,…
We are still in the same room, with the same model, we only have a different lens, perspective and lighting. We had to try a few things out till we got here, but that is also always part of the fun, the improvisation. As before, Luca has a great behind the scenes look of the shoot in his blog post, so check it out.
Joyce and I obviously shot more than one set. And sometimes lighting gets as easy as a on-flashhead reflector with a grid. The hotel room was so tiny and full of gear, baggage and three people that actually anything much more elaborate would have become much more complicated. Luca provided some more of his beautiful behind the scenes shot also on his blog, so make sure to check out his point of view and more of the BTS photos. So hopefully you’ll enjoy these too and have a great weekend. Teymur.
