(or view on YouTube)
Here’s the next video in the little series I’ve been doing, showing the stuff I’ve been producing with Phase One medium format system. The video goes behind the scenes to look at a shoot we did in April this year (which I previously blogged about) where I directed and modelled with a python, collaborating with my boyfriend on the taking of the pictures (more equally so than the usual ‘collaborations’, because I had to place most control of the equipment into his hands during this fairly time-constrained shoot, whilst I dealt with some other heavy equipment). We used the Phase One 645DF and P40+ back, and the video describes the advantages to the high resolution of the resulting images.
Oh – and it contains an abundance of full nudity, so puritans beware.
There’s lots of close-up details of the images, though not as amazing as it looked during the editing, thanks to the crap compression output from iMovie.
In the video I’ve also included a visual overview of the Photoshop compositing process to ‘Double bind’, one of the resulting images.
Upon the publication of this, that’s pretty much me sacrificed bare for art, no going back. Hopefully its not in vain and that the video brings some insight!
