We are just back from our trip to Finland.
In a few blogposts I want to show you some of the shots I took and tell you a bit about how I shot them and share some tips.
In this blog post some overal shots that have no real story, let’s call it a warm up post
We started out trip in Tampere where I did a seminar for the professional photographers association.
Incredibly talented photographers which became very clear the night before the seminar when I was present during their competition, wow what a quality…. in fact it made me quite nervous for the following day, but luckily they loved the seminar and live shoot.
So today some images I shot during the city walks.

Today some of the images we shot for the new album from “Sean Webster” called “see it through”
You can check it out here :
In these shots you can see our model Anna Matthea between two walls……. you say what?
In our studio we use different kind of backgrounds, mostly the studio walls are painted in special structures and colors to function as backgrounds, but we also have several “movable” walls. In this shot we used two of these walls in a very steep angle and let Anna Matthea pose between them.
Lighting setup was very simple…. just a single 100W lightbulb, nothing more.
Today some results from the setup we did with the Westcott Ice Light.
I love to use the Ice Light (with barndoors) to show how light behaves and how you can control the light, instead of letting the light control you.
All shot with the Sony A7R.
As you can see you can really pinpoint the light with the barndoors to make it do exactly what you want.
The ultimate workshop weekend is one of the most intense workshops I teach.
The days are literally filled with so much information that we sometimes have to stop to let everyone cool down
During the workshops I try to teach as many techniques as possible to the group and actually let the group determine which route we take, this makes it not only a very intense workshop for the group but also for me and the models because we really don’t know what to expect.
Today some results from the final sets with Lenaa.
A very simple setup with a white background and what happens when you switch the two backlights off.
During the Ultimate workshop weekends we always try to do some stuff that nobody expects.
This time we added a little story telling with some more “extreme” photoshop work…. well for me, I normally don’t do these kind of looks.
For the editing I used Topaz glow (see our discount page for a cool discount on Topaz products)
Many thanks to our models :
The Bunny, Alice and the Queen of hearts AKA Chaim, Lenaa and Christa
