young and beauty – Abimagazin Project II
Abimagazin project part II
Doing photo shoot among young and beauty was tempted me to bring the beauty out of frame.
Love their idea, with some light tricks, it will be shown as a real “Olymp” out of the screen.
“Abikropolis die Götter verlassen den Olymp”
Client : Immanual-Kant-Gymnasium
Location : Hamburg
Nikon D300 + D70s + Canon 400D (backup)

Capturing all students for their school yearbook was not easy. We talk about the numbers (ca. 60 students), we talk about the themes story (greek, acropolis, etc) and we talk about personality each photos.
All has to be done in math, good calculation and great setting.
I could say all photos that I have delivered to the client is free from post processing.
Minor correction even only done for several photos less than 10 due to rapid light changing during photo session (it runs from 9 to 15, so you could imagine how to control the ambience light there)
This time great preparation and wardrobe, light setting is the main important part of this project.
So here is the story behind the scene, how we set, how we communicate, and how we act.
