Riddle Me This

Why do YOU think I spray painted three familiar objects, set them up in studio for an hour before shooting them.

Vigari Fashion Shoot

This morning I had the pleasure of shoot for Vigari Fashion Boutique, a place for quality women’s fashion online. Based here in Brisbane, the shop itself is also worth a gander.

Here are a few of my favourites.

Rhythm with a Crascendo

In my last lecture for creative studio techniques we were each assigned a piece of homework. The task was to create an image that represented “rhythm with a crescendo”. With a brief as precisely obscure as this, I came up with only one idea. Not really sure if it works but it was a good excuse to play with water again.

On the Study Sauce


Explored some ideas today for the next Commercial Techniques “Black on Black” assignment. Lots of ideas came to mind, but I settled with this line of thought. I shot this in digital.

The title of the supposed magazine we are shooting for is “Sharp”. I plan to have a triangle obscuring the light coming from the snoot hitting the background. This will split the beam you see now in two. The Bottle should nestle neatly in between the two formed lines. To me it pushes the concept of sharpness.

The concept of “sharpness” has always fascinated me. What does it mean to be sharp. Is it something with less surface area than its opposition, like a piece of paper and a block of butter? No. The edge of a piece of paper could easily buckle before cutting through such a bock. Sharpness must be a combination of minimal surface area and density. This theory works well in most everyday situations; an axe cuts a tree better than a razor blade would, a base ball bat will cut through a dense collection of fog better than a feather would. The razor is sharper but less dense so fails, as does the feather.

Light, however, abides by its own rules, of which I’m learning with the hope of better predicting it in the future.

Il post the progression of the shoot late this week or early next week.
