Fashion Photography from Berlin
FASHION PHOTOGRAPHY FROM BERLIN – KIMONOS & JEWELRY FOR BERLIN LABELS
Fashion photography is always a lot of fun for us. We often work as a team and this time we had support from the wonderful Franziska Sommer for the make-up. The kimonos and underwear came from the label “Anekdot”, who produce each item by hand right next to our studio.
Our long-time friend Vivien and founder of “Lemon and Pink” provided the jewelry, which is also handmade in Berlin. The fantastic models also came from Berlin through our friendly agency McFit Models.
We also took the fashion photos by hand 😉 So you can say that the results of this fashion photography production represent the purest Berlin craftsmanship. We have set up three different light sets in our Berlin photo studio so that we can photograph as many different subjects as possible. We shot on a set with an LED light and of course with our ultra-fast Profoto flashes.
In the past, you had to wait a few seconds after each photo until the flashes were ready to start again. Today you can take photos in series without a break. Of course, this means that more pictures are taken than before, but the model can simply stay in the flow and doesn't have to constantly wait. With our Sony Alpha 7R IV you can produce high res recordings with over 60 MP! There are always photographers who say that technology isn't important, but at this point I can disagree. Without the right technology it simply doesn't work. The best photographer cannot achieve anything worthwhile without the right equipment. It's similar in Formula 1: If the engine fails, no world champion can win.
Long story short. We have been photographing fashion for labels such as Kaviar Gauche, Michalsky, Hien Lee, MCM, Schumacher and many others for almost 15 years. Now we are happy that fashion photography is continuing again and we think the kimonos with blindfolds are simply great! Especially on these summer days, a blindfold is worth its weight in gold. 😉
