Short Stories

Inspired by my SWAN fellow colleague Hans Krum I am reviewing my portrait work. His portfolio was inspiring me to review my work based on sensual, kind of dreamy flowting video images.

I call this set sort stories as they express some emotions in small 30 second snippets.

Here some making off images from that shooting.

All my thanks and respect to the model who was open to be creative and engaged.

In natural light

I recently updated my sensual work performed with Irina in 2021 on location in natural light.

Working with nudity is working with respect mutual confidence and trust. From my point if view it is also more complex to find a good balance between feminity, sensualty and expression and good taste. But all of this is very indivudal.

All in natural light without Photoshop or any other artificials.

PARIS La Défence

We just arrived at la défence in Paris moved strait to the arche for a photo exhibition. It was cold and while hurrying I got some shots with my Fujifilm X100V.

I am always impressed by the quality of this little body and the beauty of having one single focal lens.

Light Painting

Painting with light. This is the moment when you have planned to do portraits under a cloudy sky and suddenly the full sun hits the studio window. This light is suddenly so harsh that the model can't hardly look into it.

You must swith instantly from soft light to full hard sunlight, change your instructions, guide the model and protect her from the sun while bringing her back to the light.

When you got it right you have a story.

I also preferred to keep her in colour as the skin structure and freckles shows a complex and beautiful face.

Thanks Lena.
