The patience and perseverance, Liane has shown during the shoot, is for sure owed to 8 years of piano lessons, which Liane pursues with great passion.
Background of the shoot primarily was to test the possibilities of a relatively new lens, a wind machine and a separate light shaper, cause normally Helmut takes pictures outdoor and with available light.
As location for the shoot they chose, quasi outdoor, the flat roof behind Helmut’s apartment and a room inside the apartment. As props they used a dresser from a junk shop and a large mirror from a household liqidation.
It was a ‘test’-shooting in the proverbial meaning. Helmut played freely with aperture, focusing, ISO and perspectives. He has tried a lot, much discarded, and gained a lot of knowledge. Helmut had some bullet points to follow. Main focus was the test. As a "byproduct" they agreed on one fixed image as a reward for the model. Everything else should be more or less incidental.
After the first test with the wind machine the outfit was changed, followed by tests with available light and backlight as well as the implementation of the fixed image for Liane. Subsequently followed by some settings with flash.
Then they went out onto the roof in the sun and different camera angles and perspectives have been tested.
After another outfit change they came to the final testing with light and wind, in which Helmut tried to implement the previous findings.
Streetfashion MagZZine only can state, that it seems to be a succesful test. Helmut’s model Liane has, for that she only just begun with modeling, done a fantastic job and for sure is an interesting new face.
