photoblog image ReBirth collection

ReBirth collection

We back We back We back. As usual, apologies for not being around. Life is so busy, I just moved back to the UK from living in Switzerland for 6 months. Started a new job about a week ago ........... (those bills have to get paid in these credit crunch times). I can't complain though, God was gracefull in giving me a new job straight after my previous contract came to an end.

This is an image from a shoot I did for a client who makes bags. Her company ReBirth makes luxury bags for women................ nobody ever makes stuff for us men, its always about the women :( . Anyway she has some great pieces and I was fortunate enough to photograph them for her. I decided to put the whole shoot together for her, so I got in a model (who is a contortionist........... for the poses), a make up artist and hair stylist. I was fortunate enough that my missus and her business partner styled the shoot so that made my life a lot easier. Putting a shoot together is hard work.

First off, the image has got impact. Personally, I think the pose looks a tad uncomfortable and would have adjusted a few things. For one the pose makes her shoulder look very butch. The diffeence between the face and the body color is also a bit distracting.

Congrats on a new job straight away, I like this pic, the background is different too, although as I write I'm not sure its a background?

You are finally back......glad about that..Awesome stuff here..really, really nice.
sk: thanks Ada
Fantastic stuff.
sk: thanks Dayo
Welcome back...glad to see you both working and at work. Is this the image ReBirth used in the ad? Seems to have 20% too much emphasis on the model, and 20% too little on the bag (shouldn't the model be the accessory for the bag?) I assume we'll see more from this series?
PS I have a great old Coach briefcase from mid '80's... maybe I should start a series on it...hmmmm.
Cheers, and congrats on the new job.
sk: Thanks for your comment, this wasn't the version I gave to the client. I can definitely see your point
ha, i was going to say i wish i could do that with my legsgrin superb stuff asiko and i am sure they must be well happy with this although i too feel the model kind of over powers the very thing your trying to sell but then what do i know lol. Would love to know how you achieved the smoky effectsmile
sk: thanks Tim, I can see what you are saying about the model. the smoky effect was created by using a texture and (blend) overlaying it on the image. texture was created with blurring and colouring
gorgeous image...well done.

Impressive promotional shot!
Very nice my brother (am jealous) as much as Stan can be annoying sometimes, i will have to agree with him on some points. Keep up the good work and I am still looking forward to our shoot together.

welcome back...firstly lovely image But I cnt make out the product's brand name on the bag..and im more drawn to the model as opposed to the product
Absolutely love the series, some of ur best work. Funny very similar to something we working on smile

Now as a use with a brand i.e bag, if the client loves it, we the public WILL LOVE IT. Keep doing what u are doing smile
Very Lovely
