Since I am in London for a week now there will surely be some updates, finally. So I finally get to post this picture from around two weeks ago, that I did together with Manuel Hossfeld, fellow photographer and strobist.
The idea was to use these small light sticks that people take to concerts or so. The difficutly here is obvious: Trying to get the weakly glowing sticks to become vibrant while not getting distracted by a background that is too bright, and then lighting the subject accordingly.
What I really enjoy here are textures of the cloth on the head of the subject (that’s me by the way) and the jacket. The wide angle gives an aggressive feeling. Lot’s of things learned on this shooting.
Strobist: SB right high on head, left low on shoes, in the back.
Postprocessing: Different layers of exposure and contrast.
