Butterfly Effect

Hello fellow Blogreaders!
Today I’m going to show you a project that I started in August 2014, and finished just now, in March 2015. A part of the photos was taken during my previous meeting with Magda Zawada. Then I got the idea of putting these few experimental frames together into a short story, and this is how ‘the butterfly effect’ was born. We were missing three frames to complete the story, and we took them a few days ago in a completely different location. The most interesting aspect of the whole undertaking is its minimalism. The model was covered with a cheap plastic film, and then I reached the cocoon effect by a creative use of the liquify filter, which has been in Photoshop since forever. The lighting was one small system flash with radio trigger on a light stand, placed between the model and the background. You can see the whole postproduction process on the video.
Hope you enjoy it.

Silence, darkness. Delicate air movement, and rough sound wave breaking the biting cold of the cave…

Winter Tales

Hello fellow Blogreaders!
After more than 2 years I’m back with new energy for taking fairy-tale-like photos in Winter. Even though there wasn’t much snow this year, the January nature did a great job anyway. The subject is a fusion of my Muse’s old dream about ‘photos in a ball gown’ and my liking for fairy-tale-like atmosphere. The whole stylisation (the dress + the wig) is from Atelier Kulisy. The model was mentioned before, reliable and always wonderful Magdalena Witczak, and the stage for our fairy tale was Wielkopolska National Park. I have an impression that I’ve started the outdoor season so early before – we took these pictures 8th of January in about 5 Celsius degrees, in a piercing cold wind. From a technical point of view it’s worth mentioning that all of the photos were made in a natural light, without a reflector, and the brilliant bokeh is down to my favourite lens Canon 50mm f1.2 L.

Hope you enjoy it.

Hand. Cannot. Erase. part.I

Hello fellow Blogreaders!
This is the first post concerning my newest project, one of the biggest projects I’ve ever realized. Since August 2014 I’ve been hard working as a part of a team responsible for the visual side of the new Steven Wilson’s solo album ‘Hand. Cannot. Erase.’. But first, a few words of inroduction. The album was inspired by a real history of a young woman named Joyce Carol Vincent, who, despite living a perfectly normal life, having social relations and a steady job, by her own choice decides to break off contacts with everyone. As a result of doing so, for 3 years nobody noticed that she died from asthma attack, left alone in her apartment…

London! + mini recenzja BlackRapid Sport Slim Strap

Hello fellow Blogreaders!
Last week I had a pleasure of visiting London. The reason for this was Steven Wilson’s Hand. Cannot. Erase. concert – I’m going to write a separate post about the show itself. I was also lucky enough to find a few free hours to walk around with a camera so, traditionally, I post here some photos from my another expedition, after the one in Berlin. During the whole trip I had my camera on BlackRapid Sport Slim strap. Every time I buy a gadget that doesn’t directly affect the quality of my photos, yet is quite expensive, I feel a bit guilty.

War. War never changes.

Hello fellow Blogreaders!
It’s been said many times and in many ways that we learn on our mistakes, but it doesn’t change the fact that, despite having quite decent experience, I still can mess something up like a total newbie. Luckily, at times like this the rescue comes with one and only Photoshop, which allows you to fix many (or even all! 🙂 ) mistakes, although it might be a real fight that takes hours.I usually try to show you only the most interesting of m projects, and I boast only about the fact that everything went according to plan and turned out amazing, but this time it was different…
