Barber Shop

Local barber came to a visit with his friend and we shot some images. We got inspiration from hindu gods to Edward Scissorhand and created some dark moody images.

Back 2 Badass

Couple of portraits in a badass style that I did a couple of years back. I guess it’s a kind of a hyper real portrait style not for everybody to like but I like it especially with mens with beards. These were taken at the end of a barber/scissorhand shoot but those images are coming later…

Crochet Lace

My mother makes lots of crochet lace works so we documented some of the latest ones she has made. I chose black velvet for the background which gave me good black but also lots of dust, so outer black areas were replaced with solid black in photoshop. We took two images from every lace, one with some decoration and one ‘pure’ documentation shot.

The Rubidus Brothers

First self portrait this year and it’s already February… Props were lying on the floor and I thought I should put them to the storage. Hmm, why I don’t do a photoshoot with those. Now there’s even more props lying on the floor…

Art is mightier than the sword

Made a modification to the adage “Pen is mightier than the sword” and did some still life for a change. I used just one light to get really tight spot for the setup and then spent some time to get pleasing arrangement. Small changes can affect a lot here.

Imperfect

You wake up. Rules of vanity are immediately conquering your mind. Your inside is already burning with a small flame in the breakfast table. You go on but imperfection is the only thing you see in the mirror. Nightmares of the night haunt you during the day and you just want to take a nap and see dreams of butterflies. But whats stopping you? Is it time to break the chains of beauty?

I have been working with this picture series for a month now. It took longer than expected because of the holidays, man flu and such… This time the original sketch was pretty accurate and photoshoot took only just an hour (+45min for preparation). I shot this in camera club studio that has more space so that also helped the logistics.
