Every January I panic! No money, no jobs, phone is dead! But then February comes and I feel like my services are needed. It feels great, like I would have a real job! After a depressing January an avalanche of requests for my workshops happen. My first one was a week ago in Dobova and today I’m starting a series of workshops in Novo mesto. This two were closed workshops, but in a month or so it will be a workshop open for everybody on portrait photography in Ribnica, Slovenia. It will be one day workshop with very low tuition fee, somewhere between 80 and 100EUR, but I’ll tell you more in next few days. Beside that I’ll start teaching at VIST higher school and at Visoka šola za umetnost UNG. So rock and roll February!
In last issue of Mladina 52/2008 we are writing about Jure Engelsberger. Here is a portrait of him. We thought that I would do a photographic portrait and he would draw a self-portrait and we would publish it along side each other. Then Jure suggested that he would intervene in the photograph and I thought it was a great idea. Here is the result.
I did it in really tied time pressure right after the portrait of Marcel Štefančič and Sašo Hribar. We did portraits after the interview in a City Hotel in Ljubljana. I choose a lecture room with a projection canvas and with one flash I illuminated the background evenly and with second I illuminated his face. The trick is that although the background is illuminated the light does not illuminate the model from back, so you keep part of the face in shadow. How much shadow and how sharp you want it, you decide with distance between the face and the source of light.
