I photographed this addition to death series already in June but it missed “the closet” part and it took some time I got that done. I photographed the main images in camera club studio since it needed a lot of space. The closet part I took later in my home studio. Nothing new in editing but it took some time to get everything looking good to my eye.
I got these new background hooks to the ceiling and I wanted to test it with some idea. This macabre capitalist pig came to my mind and I had all the props to do it. It was much easier to put setup now that there is much more on the sides. I also get longer shooting distances since I can go to the bedroom if necessary.
I found this vw kleinbus at the side of the road in Kuopio. It had just rained when we went to light paint the car so we got some nice reflections on the asphalt.
I was asked to take a new profile picture so I tried a new lighting setup to keep things interested. I found a portrait (which I can’t find anymore) that I tried to mimic by guessing the light setup from the picture. Nice exercise and I’m quite happy with the result.
Another camera clubber Niko has this wonderful vw beetle which is pretty photogenic, so I asked if it could be a model in my photo series. JP is moving to southern Finland but he managed to find time to model one more time (but hopefully not last). So we had a group together and we headed to the center of Kuopio. For lights we used Yongnuo speedlights and took several images that were then put together in photoshop. It was a cloudy day and it was getting dim so we managed to emulate the night pretty easily.
I saw this as a drawing somewhere and thought that I could be time to start doing images after the summer. Everything was on the floor (forgot to take a picture, again) and I was standing on a bench, reaching over the target. On a computer I didn’t like the paper colour I selected so it changed and the cord was way too long so it was shortened.
