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!

Makeup glamour

If it is true that opposites attract, we are complete fools! Our visits to Makeuplace are becoming a tradition. Every time we’re there we’re leaving with something awesome and they’re not pockets stuffed with bronzers and powders! Aneta simply knows how to create a Photoshopped picture in real life, and we’re responsible for turning these pictures into files. As usual – a piece of cake!

What’s interesting is that for the whole session we used an Olympus OM-D E-M1 and I cannot imagine a more comfortable and suitable camera to work with in such a session. One year ago, we would be taking such photos with a Nikon D700 with a Nikkor 70-200 VR II, on a tripod. This year our camera weighed 3 times less and the image was so well stabilized that we didn’t need a tripod. That’s 21st century! :)

This is a 100% crop of the image above:

Dear, beloved, ladies and gentleman!

Last Friday the phone rang. It was Sara and she had a favour to ask. She needed pictures for her New Year’s Eve post. For now! The thing was that it was afternoon already and not even the location was planned. There was no plan for anything at all! But as we are not beginners, minutes later we were set up at Aneta’s at 6:00PM. But let me start somewhere. Maybe: who the hell is Sara and Aneta?!

Sara is Miss Ferreira. She’s a blogger, mother of three and a model ready for everything we ask for. We first met her in January 2012 and since then we’ve done all the wildest photo shoots with her. She is the face of our Miss Ferreira Fashion Project and she’s the most professional model ever posing for us. Aneta Błaszczak is a top makeup artist. She runs various trainings and represents the most known cosmetic brands in the industry. She was responsible for Sara’s makeup for one of the most beautiful shoots we’ve ever done, the Mosquito session. She proved then she’s an absolute pro, and, as some of you may have already experienced, she’s also a fantastic, endlessly positive person! She let us into her Makeuplace and gave us the freedom to WORK, for which we are eternally grateful!

According to what we agreed on with Sara, we were trying to achieve the typical modern fashion lighting and at the same time to get a sort of party looking harshness of light. Now when I think about it, using a ring flash for it was the perfect choice. Finally, we had a chance to use a RoundFlash – it’s a brand of a modifier that changes a hot shoe flash light into a real ring flash. There are some other similar devices like for example O Flash, but O Flash simply don’t work. The light is diffused in a completely uneven way, it’s impractical and it’s heavy – actually it is so heavy, that we broke a hot shoe with O Flash and we ruined a speed light. RoundFlash on the other hand works flawlessly. It’s like a real, professional, studio ring flash and technically it is perfect. The light is super even and it’s over 17″ big. Yes, it’s much bigger than studio rings we are used to. And it’s designed in a very smart way too. It’s like a fusion between a scrim and a softbox. I would call it a scrim-way-folding softbox. We absolutely love it!

We started shooting with a classic rectangular softbox mounted on a stand, but we were in a makeup studio, the space was limited to hold such a huge tent and we kept bumping into expensive mascaras all the time. It was rather terrifying so we found (...). Fotografia ślubna Warszawa, zdjęcia ślubne Warszawa, wedding photography Warsaw, wedding photographer Warsaw. READ MORE »

New Years Eve by Miss Ferreira

Miss Ferreira called us five days ago and she wanted us to take some pictures for her New Years Eve blog post. She meant “now!” – we said “yes Madame!” You can read the whole story on her blog (sorry, Polish only) as she is a hundred times better writer than I am, but we are the photographers and this enables us to publish more pictures on this blog – I hope she won’t kill me for doing that :)

There are many heroes that made this session possible and the most important ones are Aneta of Makuplace who achieved impossible, she made Miss Ferreira even more beautiful and RoundFlash that breathe so much fashion into those pictures. We will soon publish a backstage video of this session, which is currently being edited and I say it’s going to be a nice piece of information, so stay tuned :)

Bearing in mind the forthcoming tremendous date change, we wish you all folks an overwhelming amount of positive things to happen in 2014! Stay healthy, stay in love, gain even more cash and do enjoy spending it! :) Fotografia ślubna Warszawa, zdjęcia ślubne Warszawa, wedding photography Warsaw, wedding photographer Warsaw. READ MORE »
