New Striptiz portrait – Rdeča Ostriga production club

Rdeča Ostriga za Striptiz portrait rubric

For next issue of Mladina’s creative portrait rubric Striptiz I made a portrait of production group of Rdeča Ostriga (Red Oyster) club from Škofja Loka. We’ve been discussing how should we do a portrait for over a week and we would do it already last week, but it was snowing. This week we had better luck with the weather, so roof was not so slippery. Miha, guy on the left bike had a flat tire and it was even more slippery. Miha and Jaka (guy on the middle) fasten bicycles with ropes and I fasted also my flash. Luckily because it did fell once, but it fall on the softbox and because it was fasten, stayed ther, so there was no damage.
It was very funny shoot.

  2. Pravzaprav je bila iniciativa Jakova, jaz sem samo malo usmerjal in dirigiral. Vse kar potrebujem imam vedno na dosegu roke. Če nimam, pa spremenim perspektivo.

  8. ciao Igor!
    I replied imediately! I’ll send you again.

    Thanks guys! I was wondering if I shot it to much straight forward, if I should shot it more from side, more central, but I think it’s great the line of the roof must be the line + actually I did shot it comepletely central, but I cropped so it’s not central, to get a bit off balance of composition.

  12. haha to je blo maščevanje tančiču ja. :D:D čist huda je. tud lepo si jo obdelal. lah bi sicer še te vrvi, pa tiste dimnike pa okna ven vrgel, da bi bilo čim manj moteče šare.
    aja pa mogoče ta dva ob strani delujeta preveč pozirano…oba imata roke v zraku kot dve stari mami.

    sicer pa way to go! 😉

  13. Ciao Ciril,
    sure I’m planning to retouch the rope out. I’ll leave the rest as it is, because it adds the feeling of on the top of the roof.

    I like cheer-guys at the side, especially because they look so over-overwhelmed that it’s obviously staged. The whole thing must be over saturated, from the concept to the realization.

  14. No, zdaj se pa zamisli, koliko fotografov NE BI samo debeli gledalo, če se je tipu zmešalo, ko bi jim rekel, da se hoče fotkat na strehi hiše, hahaha. Noro, ampak se je splačalo. Fotka je super.


    13 March, 2008 at 10:32

  15. No no no..kako maščevanje neki!… 🙂 Jaz bi pač skos take fotke gledal…Sem pač razvajen… 🙂

  16. very very nice! še en presežek =)

    btw, to je na mestnih njivah?

  17. Marko,
    ne. Škofja Loka – streha kluba Rdeča Ostriga. A zanimivo, lahko bi bilo! Res tako izgleda, če bi fotkal na strehi tistih garaž.

    Imam še par bolj odbitih idej in ne samo za svoje Striptiz portrete. Minuli teden sem stuhtal eno (po mojem pristranskem mnenju) odlično idejo za reklamo Mladine, a sem požel reakcijo točno takšno reakcijo.

  18. Men se tut zdi tale kompozicija mal preveč centralna… Predlagam reshoot! 😀

  19. @ Ivan
    ha, ha, ha….

    Although I was thinking a lot how to make more complex composition, but I didn’t found any better solution. Five people needed to be on the picture, on the roof, with only one possible position for the flash. The frame was actually even more central, where guy on the left was included in full figure and whole chimney on the right, but I cropped out a bit of right part of the image.

    Blessing and a curse of my Striptiz portraits is that its deadly tempo. No reshoots (in two years thats more then 100 portraits I’ve re shot only one portrait – Aleš Šteger), every week new idea, new deadline, fitting in the schedule of other tasks.
