In the spirit of 80’s

Hello fellow Blogreaders!

On the Women’s Day (not intentionally :)) together with Kasia ‘Daedra’ Mikołajczak we organised a photo shoot loosely inspired by the 80s – more in case of the lighting rather than the stylization. The whole lighting effect, including the “stars” in the background, was achieved already in the camera. As usually, a full description can be found at the end of this post.

Battle of Poznań 2017

Hello fellow Blogreaders!
After 4 years, once again I undertook helping with a photo for a poster and flyers for Battle of Poznań. During a short, half-hour photoshoot we took several photos of 3 members of Stowarzyszenie Poznańska Grupa Rekonstrukcji Historycznej “WARTA”: Tomek Kaczmarek, Wojtek Zakrzewski i Łukasz Szudarski. Below you can see 3 of them, and a final poster and flyer made by Magdalena Witczak. See you on February 19th on Cytadela in Poznań!

NapoGloves with Mila Calmel

Hello fellow Blogreaders!
Today’s post will be short and to the point. Last year in December I made another series of photos (and videos!) for napo gloves – this time it was for a women’s collection of gloves for the next Winter season. The model was beautiful Mila Calmel, and the stylizations were provided by Showroom LPP. We were shooting in 4 interesting spots in Warsaw. We began with Gdański Bridge, then abandoned in Winter Temat Rzeka, European Square, and Hala Koszyki. The whole photoshoot was made with Sony A7s II + Canon 50mm f1.2. At the end of this post you can see a video made from 2015 and 2016 shots.

study of solitude

Hello fellow Blogreaders!
In today’s post there will be not only photos, but also my personal reflection on group session, where several models and several photographers meet on one set. I’ve been considering photos as a way of telling a story or show certain emotions for a long time now, so in my case a lot of intimacy is required. Therefore, I’ve always avoided group photoshoots or photography workshops, where many people fight for the model’s attention, and each one of them will eventually end up with a variation of the very same photo. The whole situation reminds me more of shooting celebrities on a photo wall rather than searching for something unique on your own. On the other hand, I wondered what these kind of events look like, and after many years I’ve decided to give it a try. The opportunity for that appeared when Poznańskie Plenery TFP informed about organising an apartment session, but I think I would come to similar conclusions after attending to any event of this type.

This post’s title is of course related to the photos. First, ‘study of solitude’ Ania:

remembrance trails

Hello fellow Blogreaders!
I’ve finally found a moment to catch up with the blog. First, a photoshoot that Justyna and I made in the first days of October. Justyna Sancja Milenkiewicz was responsible for make up, posing and stylization. Characterisation and further stylization were made by Dominika Cianciara. Our battlefield were abandoned allotments. The state of those corresponded well with the state of our main charakter. Come with me on a memory trail journey…

My Own Prison

Hello, fellow Blogreaders!
I wanted to make a photoshoot along the lines of lingerie + cinematic b&w + the light of sunset coming through blinds for a long time… but the unpredictable weather turned out to be a big problem. Luckily, there is no problem you can’t solve with flash lights – a description of the lighting will be as usually at the end of this post. The model, stylist and the owner of the place was already known from the blog (click, another click) Natalia. The claustrophobic climate, enhanced with a focused light and showing the “bars” in the shot made added up to a session which I called ‘My Own Prison’:
