New Striptiz portrait of Oko; Uho Multimedia Festival
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.
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.
