BTS Latex Workshop


BTS Latex Workshop

The Behind The Scenes  Movie from DoubleTroubleStudios and wanted to share this awesome video with you all. Also below you can find some of the results shot during the workshop. Because it was latex and reflections on the clothes mathers, we decided to do some more complex lighting setups. More in the movie

Walktrough "Castle Of Dreams"


Walktrough "Castle Of Dreams"

Castle Of Dreams, creation

As you can see, all the images above where made from the same angle and perspective. All on a tripod to make sure the compositing part in the end was not to big of a deal.

Hello All It's been a while since I've updated my blog again, so here I'll make it up to you.

Last w  eek, we decided to do another 'Project'! Below I'll give you a sneek peak of the proces we went trough when creating this image. It was made of multiple exposures, and later in the retouching part, all composed together.

As you can see below, we started with a empty room in a castle, and we've built the entire set and customized it to our own taste. Big thanks to Photographyves (assistant) and Tinneke Geenen (styling) for helping me out that day. 

Tec  hnical Part: The shutter speed used for the shot with only the dress was 1 sec on ISO 200 with a diafragma of f11. Camera was a Nikon D700 + 24-70mm f2.8Later we added the deep octa right in front of her, to create an even light, to make sure later in the compositing part we had not to much contrast, because we wanted to create a romantic, dreamy atmosphere.

Later this week I will go over the retouching of this image, since i know a lot of you out there are really interesting in this part.

Got questions about this, feel free to contact me!

Hello All, Quick update: Just a retouched result from the shooting with Jamecia Baker.

Simple light setup, one light Elinchrom BX500RI on the right, behind her, gelled with 2 blue gells, to make the blue more visibel and darker. Just a simple 18cm reflector behind her with a grid in, on top of that attached the blue gells with some tape.

Mainlight was another BX500RI with the Elinchrom Deep Octa & Grid on the right side from her, on a low angle point to her.


Questions, comments let me know!

Up to the next shooting, catch you laterz



Tamara M.


The session we had with Tamara, was one with wonderfull results. Makeup and hair was done by Marjo Shipper.

We did the entire shoot in our new Studio. As always all lighting is done by Elinchrom and their modifiers.


I'm not going to say much about these shots, but retouching was done in Photoshop, we started out with some basic black and whites, and ended up doing some fashion minded glamour shots.


The shots above are made pretty easy, just some fabric on the floor, model on it. Some glamour makeup, curly hairs and there we go. I have to admit we had to try a lot of different angles in order for these shots to come out the way we wanted it to. But I really love the first shot.


Then we went a totally other direction, more shade, the way we are used to. Images are lit with the Elinchrom striplight with a grid from Lighttools.

Some of the images, are just lit with a  basic 18cm reflector with grid in it to create some high contrast images. Toning and retouching is done in Adobe Photoshop CS6 after shooting tethered with PhaseOne Capture One.
