New Striptiz portrait of Bojan Radovič a photographer
This is my new portrait for Mladina’s Striptiz rubric.
Bojan Radovič is a contemporary photographer who have an exhibition in Gallery Fotografija. He’s latest project is Icons and he is photographing all sorts of icons of stars. You can download the catalogue of the exhibition from THIS LINK.
I wanted to photograph him in a context of stars and I had in mind Da Vinci‘s painting of man’s proportions, but was not sure how to make the picture, but when I arrived I started to check possible backgrounds. I didn’t want to do it on the floor, walls were OK, but then I saw the door of hay barn and I illuminated it with one flash from within. I draw a star with a torch during the long exposure and illuminate face with detached flash. It took me about 8 tries to make it right. Here is a plain shot of the scenery.
