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!




On Top Of Topless Art

In March we had for the very first time our 'Get On Top Of Topless Art' Workshop with the lovely model Emilie Vermeylen! Just to have you  know how it works in our workshops, Double Drouble Studios have created a behind the scenes movie to give you a quick inside view of all of this.

During this workshop we try to play as much as we can with shadows. And not to mention posing your model, since there are no clothes (or almost none) we have to be creative with the body and create some nice curves for this.

If you are also interested in one of these workshops, you can find more information over here! At the end of April we have a workshop with the Dutch model Lenaa Warmelink doing the same kind of style.


And for now some of the images shot during the workshop!
