You saw, the version of that photo with August sharp and Ruffle blurry here a few days ago, here is now the photo taken about one second later.

You guys have no idea how much I enjoy shooting with my new 85mm. That lens is so fast and soooo sharp at f/1.2!

I haven’t actually used it at any other aperture so far, and I am not about to, as it is so bokehlicious! (as my friend Thierry M would say.)

As many of you might already know, Instagram now has a full on web interface on which you can see people’s photos.

You still have to upload your photos from a phone, and this is not about to change because this is kind of the whole concept, right?

In the mean time, if you want to check more of my photos, feel free to check me out here and follow me.

Today I decided to use the technique I used for EKTA and apply it to a portrait.

I think the result is kinda neat and I wanted to share it with you all.

What do you think?

See the EKTA Series here.

Some people call me obsessive, but maybe I just like the mass effect of photo series…

How do you create a nice portrait in bad lighting conditions?

It’s 3pm in January, almost no light outside, someone asks you to shoot a portrait, and you don’t have your light kit.

Question: What the hell are you supposed to do?

Answer: You grab whatever light source you can find, in this case an old Ikea lamp (very orange light source that is gonna conflict with the exterior light, very blue).

Then you grab the coolest table you can find, put it next to a window and a white wall and you’re almost there.

Then, place the main light source (old Ikea lamp) exactly in front of the model so the big shadow goes behind the model and not on the side.

Once you’re done (and that’s where you’ll look like a moron), you have to place your camera so you are basically at the same place as the lamp. Chances are you’re gonna have your face against the lamp.

This way, camera, lamp and model are aligned and the shadow is hidden behind your subject.

Once that’s done, you shoot and you end up having either a well lit subject with a blue wall (remember the window on your left with blue exterior light coming in…?) or a well lit wall with an orange model. (Thanks Ikea !!!)

Ah…

Had you had your light kit, you would have put gel on the window (or on the lamp) and fixed the problem right there, but you didn’t.

So the last trick is to fix your photo in post. Meaning you decide to go with the photo that has the blue wall, and since your model (who has gray eyes by the way) is not wearing any blue, you simply desaturate the blue all the way on photoshop.

Boom! White wall with correctly lit model!

Time spent, 5 minutes during the shoot and about 5 minutes in post.

Hey Guys,

I made it to Paris, yesterday for the last 3 days of my trip.

Apparently I sorta have a view from my apartment…sorta. ;o)

I’ll be back very soon with photos from Europe, San Francisco and also some new nude fine-art with Carolina.

Brice.

Last month I’ve had the pleasure of working with the "Momentum Magazine" crew one more time.

This time I wasn’t shooting for them, but shot by them.

Yes, you read correctly, I was “modeling” for them. ;o)

David Niddrie was in charge of the photo, and as you can see, nailed it. As he always does.

My friend Molly Millar was there too directing and styling everyone.

Those of you who know my work will recognize Lizbit somewhere on the photo too ;o)

It was a first for me and (I hope) not a last as a “model” and I had a blast.

What’s not to like, a make up artist takes care of you for 45 minutes, you wear expensive stuff and are surrounded by models. Fun…

Have a look at the Momentum Magazine edition right here and share it with the world.
