jure engelsberger foto Borut peterlin - Mladina
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.

  3. And what about his hand? Is it post produces or he has some kind of glove. To be honest I can not say what is it. Although, it looks awesome. Simple but effective!!!
