Mathias VI - Urban Abandon

Part of the Web Portraits Zurich project on Amazee, I did a portrait session with Mathias (Editor and Community Manager at in my studio. The goal here was to create a darker image, with sort of grungy/alternative feeling. The background was shot at the old Packard car factory in Detroit, Michigan.


For these portraits we used Google Wave (photo brainstorming w/Wave) during the brainstorming stage, created a concept direction for the shoot, and later plan to put together some more intricate composite imagery.


Lighting: Small XS Photoflex octa box with Elinchrom BxRi strobe from camera right, reflector from the left.
