Oto miniony weekend, dwa cudowne dni z Niną i Chazem. Żadne słowa choćby w najmniejszym stopniu nie oddadzą tego, co widzieliśmy, przeżyliśmy, ani tego jak cudowne było to wydarzenie, zrobiliśmy jednak wszystko, aby mimo wszystko opowiedzieć tę piękną historię. Darujemy sobie więc czcze wierszyki i zapraszamy na reportaż!

Nina, Chaz, it was a pleasure, a blinding experience. It was an honor. Thank you! Fotografia ślubna Warszawa, zdjęcia ślubne Warszawa, wedding photography Warsaw, wedding photographer Warsaw. READ MORE »

We are back from Woodstock! Heart broken as we coundn’t stay as long as we wanted to and we left a day early. We we late the first day actually and spent just a day and a half. Not enough! We come to the Przystanek Woodstock festival just for fun – the first time for a very long time we decided to do something for ourselves only. We wanted to be there, by the stage, right next to the greatest band, but we wanted to take some pictures as well and just see this great festival. And? It was an outstanding time!

In terms of amount of pictures published, 150 of them, this may be the longest post ever. Why is that? It is Beata’s and Pawel’s fault as they inspired us to the point where we couldn’t stop taking pictures. We’ve been running up and down for the whole day and we couldn’t get enough of emotions, details and location. This was one of the most beautiful weddings we ever attended as photographers. Beata, Pawel, we want to let you know that we enjoyed your wedding the very same way kids enjoy visiting theme parks. Thank you for that! We feel personally happy for your happiness!

Location: Pałac Zdunowo, Załuski Flowers and decorations: Rock&Flowers Band: Golden Band Wedding dress: Dom Mody Ślubnej MADONNA Make-up: Dominika Renes Suit: Macaroni Tomato Fotografia ślubna Warszawa, zdjęcia ślubne Warszawa, wedding photography Warsaw, wedding photographer Warsaw. READ MORE »

M+M apartment

It was rather ordinary afternoon when we received an email with an offer to do an interior session. At first glance, a glance at the message obviously, it did not sound particularly exciting. That was until we got a few previews – digital renders of the interior designs of the flat. From this moment on, a seemingly ordinary session turned into a challenge for a session like the one with Tokina. Again, we were to challenge renders, which seemed to be slowly becoming our speciality.

Obviously, each “designed” interior is a result of implementing some kind of design, but it’s an incredible experience to step into a flat, which previously existed in files only, as JPEGs. Suddenly, we could enter a digitally created space and we could even touch it. The difficulty of the session lied in the fact that we wanted somehow to refer to the visualizations, so we tried to duplicate the exact compositions and lighting in the real world. It was both easy and difficult at the same time. Difficult, because you can bend physics with a computer and easy, because the owner made the flat with a great attention to detail, and it looked 99% the same as the renderings. All photos in this session were taken with Tokina 16-28 f/2.8.

Behind the realisation of all this is a group of architects, 081 architekci, who create interiors and exteriors. Hands down they are gifted but above all exceptionally nice people. After seventeen series of corrections we should hate them already, but it’s the opposite – we have huge hope that this is the first of many chances to work with them. They have many interesting projects up their sleeve, in fact, in many already production.

There is an interesting personal fact, that probably not even the architects themselves know about. Before starting work with 081, we completed a long intensive course on interior photography. We learned how to set the lights, what lenses and focal lengths to use, and how to create nice looking picture-like photos of interiors. Two weeks later, this question was raised and we found out that what we had learned during the training was quite the opposite to what the architects expected. In the end, we were again driven by improvisation – always effective and reliable, applicable in any field. :)

Wioleta and Marcin – wedding documentary

It sometimes happens that a reportage makes itself, and that’s how it was with Julia and Nuno; we really don’t know where we got so much energy from. It also happens sometimes, as in the reportage with Wioleta and Marcin, that everything is going perfectly, until finally we start to wane. This is a slippery slope, as once something does not go right, it gets very difficult to get back on track and work like an inspired reporter. This terrifying feeling, this genuine black hole, fried our brains. This state of affairs could have been caused by a number of factors. Domaniowski Palace is beautiful and, because of this, demanding – if something is not right, this is not the fault of the interior, and this means pressure. Add to this that Wioleta and Marcin looked phenomenal and that pressured is multiplied a million times over – extremely exhausting. To make matters worse, this was our second 20-hour work day in a row and simply put, at one moment we were spent. We took a 20 minute break to reset. Everything returned to normal, we pulled through to the end, strangely in good form, even though, in retrospect, we had nothing to worry about. A lot of requests come on Facebook for more of these kinds of crises – hopefully not, we’ll have gone grey before the end of September! I promise we’ll try though without this :) We were also asked where did the title image come from? Rafal explains in the comments of the image:

Those are glowing balls that we came across in the park of the palace in which the event took place. We added bokeh using tilt-shifting as without this it was a little “lupny”. Ale of the balls were lying on the grass (which can be seen clearly in the sharp images), while Wioleta and Marcin crouched down to hide themselves behind the largest, yellow ball. We would have used Photoshop, if we hadn’t been so tired.

We were going to say something about the Voigtlander (the few few photos: 5, 7, 9), but this is not the time for a long review of this lens. In the meantime, take a look at the reportage while we go and catch up on some sleep :) Fotografia ślubna Warszawa, zdjęcia ślubne Warszawa, wedding photography Warsaw, wedding photographer Warsaw.

Kamila and Tomasz – wedding session in Israel

We were supposed to fly to two different places with Kamila and Tomek, before they bought the tickets to Tel Aviv. It’s not a secret – we were happy, because it’s a country which is rather exotic, controversial and orthodox, so we knew that it would have a huge influence on us and the pictures we would take. On the other hand, we had some anxieties – bombings, cultures, religions etc. Well, maybe not anxieties but definitely some concerns.

Luckily, Israel is the second, or actually the first home for the company that Kamila works for, so we could feel more at home than tourists. Right after landing in Tel Aviv, Ron, our guide (and a brilliant guy, by the way), took care of us, put us all into his golden Vogue and during those several days he showed the most beautiful parts of Palestine. He took care of everything and made the impossible possible – without him we would have completed maybe 5 % of our plan.

What do we know now? It’s a beautiful, wonderful country. One of the most beautiful countries we have ever been to. It’s full of cultural extremes, full of orthodox religions of the world. Also, it’s full up to the brim with war and the hidden atmosphere of threats.

The Dead Sea (the deepest depression in the world, 400 metres below sea level) and the surrounding desert are by far the most amazing areas of the country. Abandoned, deserted, very, very beautiful and with an atmosphere. On the other hand, Jerusalem is where millions of people are mainly coming to pray in the first place. The city is like an enormous church. According to the Bible, this location is closely related to Jesus Christ, and virtually wherever he was (where he wept, where the went through, where he died) a temple was built. Through the streets of this city, Jesus used to carry his cross so here is where the real Way of the Cross is. It’s here also where Jews have their own sacred places, where they have their Western Wall – the most sacred place for Judaism. You’ve got to remember that for centuries Jerusalem belonged to Palestine, and it is still inhabited by Armenians too. A melting pot? As hell!

It wasn’t easy when it came to photographing. It was probably the most difficult photo shoot that we’d had. Really, you could go there and come back with no single picture. Israel is overwhelming with its charm and it’s not easy not to point in all directions and take ultra-wide-angle frames, even when I was telling myself that I’m doing something incredibly stupid. The displays in our cameras were constantly fogging up as we were taking pictures with our mouth wide open…

For the first time, we were shooting with new equipment – Micro 4/3 – Olympus OM-D E-M1 and a bunch of lenses. Actually, almost the whole video of this trip we filmed using this camera. (...).
