FOUR NON BLONDES – TFCD

Well, this shooting took place quite some time ago, I must admit. After meeting with Florina who put up a personal collection of dresses and wanted to be photographed in a creative way, I took up the challenge to make some sort of story of this shooting. Me and my light assistant, Claudiu, went to Cluj prepared with some ideas based on some pictures about the dresses and the location. One of the challenges was to coordinate 6 female models on the scene, in a limited space. When we reached the shooting location models were arriving, hair and make-up was in progress… After inspecting the room an the hallway of the old building, in order to set the scene and the point of view of the shots, we were told that two models stepped back from this project and we need to work with the remaining four. Well… and we started shooting. The following photos are my story about four non blondes women, having a good time and preparing to get out and have fun in the city…

It feels somehow peculiar posting a shooting’s result after almost half year from the shooting day… brings back memories, moments, laughter and fun time. As for myself, it was a unique experience to work with four models in the same time, paying attention to story line, details, emotions, the dresses… I must admit, at the end, I was drenched mentally and the driving home to Tirgu Mures was performed by my assistant Claudiu, excellently!  Thank for the patience folks, it was nice and memorable working together and congratulation to the whole team!

SUSAN – a duality of personas

Filed under: Black and white, Color, model shooting, Stories — Tags: , , , , — bathori @ 8:33 pm

Well… opportunity presented itself and Susan could appear again in front of my lens. It’s been a while since I shot her and a few years ago I made her a promise. Being stubborn by nature and patient by default I was intended to keep that promise. The location was known to me and from our previous chit-chat with the model, I started to draw a short film in my mind about the shooting itself. I wanted to use only available light and start the story slowly, and getting closer to the final shot step by step. Special thanks goes to “Tücsök” who helped me and the model along the shooting… This mutual effort resulted a two mini-series ( a bit chunky, I admit ) and made me aware that I like to direct stories and freeze the movie that’s running in my mind by taking screen-shots as photographs… Let’s see if I managed to waste my time and my model time efficiently! Enjoy!

With this image I ended my shooting… personally I feel I was able to produce more. More, not as quantity but quality… maybe next time. I am still experiencing how to transmit those inner feelings that takes shape in one’s mind, how to bring to light those personas we hide so much under our ego. Perhaps this is why I like photography… the journey to discover myself day by day is just as appealing like discovering the person next to me, or in front of my lens… A final group photo was taken with the people who was present on location an made that beautiful Sunday even more pleasant…  🙂

Looking back in … 2011.

Filed under: Color, model shooting, Team Work, Uncategorized — Tags: , — bathori @ 10:49 pm

… I was already trying out how to use the light, more exactly the flash off-camera back in 2011. This shooting is dear to me, I worked with people I like and got some decent shots, back then. Back than, just like now, I was a newbee in Photoshop, using only Ligtroom to edit my photos… Sometimes I get nostalgic and re-imagine a former shooting, in order to find something to improve, learn something new out if it or just for the fun of remembering it…

A WARM WELCOME

so, I’ve been announced the teaser for quite a long time, but the post processing of this shooting took a bit more than I expected… nevertheless patience pays off, I guess. In a nutshell, this shooting was the most prepared of mine, involving a huge team effort, planning and financial costs. The idea of this shooting started around Halloween last year and slowly grew by time. In this spring all thing seemed to fall in place and we prepared seriously for this shooting. We did a location scouting, storyboard making, make-up tests and finally when the weekend of the shooting came, we entered in our role… One of the challenges was to shoot this story not in according to the timeline of the story… Overall I feel kind of content of the outcome. Much we’ve learned of this, I am pretty sure… how and when we shall make another story is yet to be determined, but one thing is certain, I am not going to stop here… Nope!

So, I guess the story is far from perfect, I admit that. I just hope is understandable… I tend to see stories like this like a movie in my head and I am trying to capture the key frames in photos, in order to force the viewer to fill the missing blanks… The last photo is the group shot after the first day of shooting. Credits to: Endreffy Csaba (project manager), Anamaria V. ( lady of the manor), Éva Bartha (maid girl), Réka Kopacz (maid girl), Dudás Szabolcs (salesman/victim), Gyopi Puskás (make-up). This way you can easily figure out who am I in that last photo … And great thanks for Claudiu Baias (light assistant – post process editor) !!!

TEASER – of a new project

Filed under: model shooting, Stories — bathori @ 12:41 am

… another huge team effort was in progress last weekend. A two days shooting with a complete storyboard was planned and executed as well. The final shots are still in post-editing phase,

and coming up with a proper title for our story is not quite easy as we thought… But here’s a teaser… I hope you will be still patient for a couple of days too!

BAD LUCKY DAY

Filed under: Black-and-whaite, model shooting, Stories — bathori @ 12:26 am

… as promised here is the story… in pictures. My plan was to shoot in available light, as plain and simple as I could. In black and white, of course! The location was simple as well, an abandoned factory hall with big windows on the rooftop… the sun intruding the location managed to mess up the ambient light several times… other than that, I enjoyed directing and shooting the story…

… and yes, I do know it’s far from perfect my story. I consider this experience a useful one, for my next project and I have to admit it was nice working with my models Gyopi Puskas and Szabolcs Dudas. Special thanks goes for Gabor Ugron supplying that BMW E30 of his for this occasion! At last and not least thanks for Csaba Endreffy for playing the perfect role of a personal assistant!

Bucharest Fashion Week 2011 – DAY 3

The final day of Bucharest Fashion Week was for me one of the finest fashion show I’ve seen. Not that I’ve seen so many, don’t get me wrong. I was impressed by the details, subtleness and choreography of the whole show in fact. Also on the final day was held the contest Fashion TV Model Awards, and with so many pretty faces I was curious indeed, who shall win…  Thanks for watching!

Bucharest Fashion Week 2011 – DAY 2

Day two was a bit different from my point of view. I mean the stage was redecorated, the FTV logo was lowered, the lights was rechecked and now it was almost even on the whole catwalk. I met new people, I found out that one of the luggage with dresses of the Italian designer who would end the show, on day two, didn’t make it to Bucharest airport and was sent elsewhere… Though luck, indeed. This time I will post more photos of the presented collections and hopefully you will find them as visually pleasing as I did. Day 3 to come… soon!
