Here are the final images of Pravnik, shot in Prague.
Here are the behind the scene shots for Pravnik.
Once again… please remember we are working with the absolute minimum. Our Model, Lenka G, also from Czechoslovak Models, has a plastic knife in her ponytail to keep it up straight. I used my travel block of ‘dove’ soap to block out her brows and once again… The clothing is all mine…
Lenka’s boyfriend was so kind to help us and play assistant for the evening, moving flashes and making sure nothing gets stolen as we are shooting in a Gypsy area.
I am soooo pleased with the final shots, they are lit so well that I don’t think they even need retouching. I will post them soon.
In the meantime, have a look at our ‘behind the scene’ footage.
Here are the final shots for Lipanska. Please note they are not yet retouched…
You will notice a lot of colour blocking in shop windows, magazines and also on my blog… Here is another example.
Here are the ‘behind the scene shots for ‘Lipanská’ shot in Prague. It was a very fun shoot as we had to wait for oncoming trams for every shot. Bystanders thought we were crazy! Everyone chilling out and suddenly someone will shout: “Tram! Tram! Tram!” and like soldiers we would start shooting! Our stunning model, Denisa from Czechoslovak Models did a great job…
Jan Ras (photographer) and I are very pleased with these shots. You have to remember, we are travelling abroad at the moment…so we have VERY limited resources. The extensions in Denisa’s hair was bought at Primark in Amsterdam. They are 8 pounds. So, for R80, you can’t really expect great quality hair… for R80 you can expect very shiny, plastic looking hair that knots VERY easily!! I didn’t bring any eye shadows with me… i bough two natural shades and two colourful shades at Sephora on the day of the shoot, and believe me, I will be using the same colours in every shoot we do here. Keep an eye out for how I make each shot look different, but still using the same products! CHALLENGE OF THE WEEK!!
Jan had to use a speed light and VERY ‘mini’ portable soft box syncedwith triggers. Poor Denisa had to get dressed in a local grocer on the high street and my stand by bag was a shopping bag from Sephora.
Also, please notice the clothes in the shots…they are ALL mine! Denisa is soooo tiny, so we had to peg her into all my clothing… see the pegs on my skirt… ha ha!
Good Times!! Keep an eye out for the finals.
