Working with Olga is always a wonderful experience. It’s always a great back and forth. Just love working with pros like her.
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.
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.
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…
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…
say hello and goodbye to svitlana…
I was on the road for a few days so I apologize for not supplying with more this shoot… I am back now and here you have the third post and some of the strongest photos of the shoot. the last post will follow soon to a wonderful finish as I think.

a while ago svitlana and me started thinking about a series of different shots.
