New Striptiz portrait of Oko; Uho Multimedia Festival

with 14 comments

20080910_7156 selected
For Mladina weekly I’ve done a portrait of organizers of Multimedia Festival Uho; Oko (in translation Ear; Eye). From left: Peter, jože, Melita Zajc, Marko Ornik. I used 50mm macro lens, EOS 5D, with some cropping.
Technically I needed to established a large contrast between the eye and people that are reflected in the iris. I achieve that by setting two studio flashed behind the person who’s eye was I photographing and that person had a large black piece of paper on his head. That paper blocked the light from flashes so it didn’t fall in my lens. Simple, but crucial trick.

20080910_7163 Ups… This is an image with only four members. I lost one member with reflection 🙂

PS: Sorry for not blogging lately, but I had an eye infection, so I was avoiding computer. I did some really good lectures in Keynote, but I can’t exported in Quicktime. They issued a new version that it doesn’t work and I can’t uninstall new version of QT and reinstall old version. Let me repeat, Mac’s are not more relieble as PC7s.

  9. Tudi meni je zelo lepa!
    Blo bi mi všeč, če bi našo družinsko fotko naredil na ta način. Poznaš kakšnega fotografa, ki bi to znal ponovit? 😉

    Sicer pa mi je vizuelno prva (ko ji je 5 noter), lepša od druge.

  10. Se strinjam, prva boljša od druge. Sprva sploh nisem videla tvojega odseva, na drugi pa fotoaparat precej izstopa…

  14. […] v Mladini preseneti. Ko sem prepričan, da njegova fotka v rubriki striptiz ne more biti boljša, je še fotka boljša! In to vsak teden! Poleg tega je tudi pisec bloga Borut Peterlin in a rabbit hole of photography, […]
