Workshops Diptychs

Hello fellow Blogreaders!
Last week, after a several years break, I went back to wonderful Ciechocinek to carry out one on one photography workshops for Sławekk (the author of the blog Fotościanka), whom I met because of the 365 Challenge. Sławek wanted to broaden his knowledge about lighting and postproduction of portraits. We took a few portraits of his super nice wife Ania, and then had a micro outdoor session near Wisła river with amazingly freckled Joanna. The side effect of my trip to Ciechocinek is a series of diptychs, which you can see below.

Steampunk

Hello fellow Blogreaders!

A few days ago Agnes from Garbledville and I went to an old antiques store. We’ve both wanted to have a steampunk photoshoot for a while now, and after a couple of weeks of trying to find the right date, we finally did it. The photos were taken mainly in natural light + flash with a transparent umbrella (only for the first shot).

Model/stylization: Agnes from Garbledville
Corset: The Gothic Body
make-up: Emilia Fijałkowska-Kowalewska

Come with us on a journey into the dusty corners of Stara Rzeźnia:

Poison Garden vol I

Hello fellow Blogreaders!

Lately I went to explore green belts that are only one tram stop away from where I live. I was accompanied by the wonderful Justyna Sancja Milenkiewicz. The excuse for this was an idea that my model had for a great while now. The photos were supposed to picture sensitivity and gentleness of woman’s nature in a bit of a darker take. Justyna did both the make up and stylization. The dresses were provided by: Odio Tees and Jakub Pieczarkowski. Cape: Fashion Dealers. The technical aspects of the photos are, as usually, described at the end of the post.

The series is called ‘Poison Garden’ and as an addition to it, here is the text written by the model:
“Give me the keys to the secret garden. I’ve been watching it from my window for too long… Sometimes in my thoughts I float in the air, I cross the ivy-covered gates. I burst into flowers stalks that, painfully curved, forgot to blossom. I wander around the path of withered leaves. I soak my hands in the water, like white lilies do. The magic of the garden locks me up inside. It absorbs, fills, allures with aromas. I’m not looking for a way out/ My feet, wrapped with ivy, won’t make a step anymore. Melancholy, I’m so blissful. I’m so sad.

Day in Berlin

Hello, fellow Blogreaders!
This time a few words about a music video, which I was making between September 2015 and May 2016. The video for Jola Stopka’s ‘Day in Berlin’ was shot in three 2-day takes in Autumn 2015 and Spring 2016. During the 6 days of shooting, we visited many places characteristic for the German capital. It is up to you to discover where exactly these places are.

fold it

Hello, fellow Blogreaders!
this time, a quick post about a micro outdoor session that I’ve recently made with some excellent people:
Kasia Fabiańska – an old friend and a gifted designer,
Dominika Raczkiewicz – a young model with a potential,
Kinga Tyborska-Bednarek – a great make up artist, who also took care of the model’s hair
and Łukasz – our logistic and spiritual support.

A few words about the collection ‘fold it’ from Kasia: it was inspired by rococco. The basis was a dress a’la polonaise, which was an inspiration for the collection of women’s clothing with strongly textured fabrics.

The photoshoot took place in Sołacki Park in Poznań. More technical info, as usually, at the end of this post.
Meanwhile, the photos:
