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…

Back to school with Juliette in Wonderland

Hello,fellow Blogreaders!
Today’s post will be even shorter and more substantial, than my posts usually are. Recently I’ve met a wonderful blogger, Julia (Juliette in Wonderland). We went for a hour long walk in Jeżyce, during which we made a few illustrations for her post about grunge stylization. Model, make up artist and stylist: Julia. You can see all the photos below.

Here are a few words about the stylization from its author:
Back to school – grunge style outfit. A grunge stylization! When I think about September, the first things that come to my mind are plaid shirts, gray and black. I’ve decided to combine all these elements into one. I wrapped a black and red plaid shirt around a gray fitted sweater. Instead of a jacket, I put a denim vest on, a vest that I found in… if you curious where she found it, make sure to check out her blog.

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.

Model: Joanna Lubawińska

Wind maker: Sławek Świątkiewicz

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:
