New creative portrait – Klemen Smolej
For this portrait I was planning something completely different, to do a portrait outdoor somewhere at the open space, but I forgot my flash feeder (battery for studio flashes), so I had no power. I would go and hire it, but I thought since I’m in great time pressure (Monday + the first day after vacation) and I don’t have a really good outdoor location I might think of indoor location. It didn’t went well, I couldn’t get the keys to some abandoned rooms at the building, so I bought a cheese burek, thinking that I have 23 minutes to figure out something around Mladina. While I was eating I noticed the glass window just above the cellar of Mladina’s building and I decided to use that. I set a flash downstairs and directed through grid. I tried without a grid, but the whole room was too bright and his face was back lit.
What does the picture mean? Hey, I’m payed to produce images, I’m not qualified to interpret them! You come on this blog, take all my tips&tricks and now you want me to do also the intellectual work? No way! At least not for free! But you can make a pre-subscription to my new blog that will be just about interpretations of my pictures. Of course the subscription will be really expensive, but as a pre-subscriber, you will get a 22,5% discount and 0% of guarantee when this blog will be on-line. Isn’t great? A suspension of emotions! You know, art and stuff.
