No Future – Lookbook – Katarzyna Fabiańska

Hello fellow Blogreaders!

Last weekend I made a lookbook photoshoot, where I tried to break the majority of the rules I stick to everyday. I used an ultrawide lens with the focal length of 16mm (full frame), plus I took the photos from a frog perspective, often framing at the joints, I wasn’t keeping the horizon straight, breaking vertical and horizontal lines. So as you can see, I broke most of the good photography rules, and I was having tons of fun while doing so. Not only did it give the photos much energy, but it also made me realize how limited we are in our creative work when we try to keep all the rules, and how liberating and fun rejecting them is.

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.

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…

Sleeping Maids

Hello, fellow Blogreaders!
This is the most awaited/late post in this blog history. For many reasons, but I think the most important of them all was my fatigue, and the whole hype around this project. For all the unitiated: ‘The Sleeping Maids is my first personal project, realized in September/October 2012. It was published in January 2013 in the ‘Foto’ magazine, and there were also two exhibitions with it – a mini exhibition during the Vth edition of the fashion event ‘Mała Czarna’ (Concordia Design, 06.04.2013) and an exhibition with vernissage in Strefa Kultywator in Poznań (20.04 – 20.05.2013). The culmination was a non-profit auction ‘Oddaj sztukę w dobre ręce’, where my works helped gain money for sociotherapeutic community centre Nibylandia. All the technical stuff, as always, at the end of this post.
