This year I will be working on not just one, but two projects. For two different reasons.
First of all, I’ll be working with two very cheap IKEA lights. This plan I came up with, because a photographer I know was saying you need expensive lighting to do some good studio photography. I totally disagreed and told him so. He pretty much laughed in my face and I decided to prove him wrong. So, drove to IKEA and bought two €3,- lights with two €2,50 lightbulbs. In grand total, the lighting cost me only €11,-. Now, I’m setting to work with these lights and proving him wrong. I’ve been working with the lights last weekend allready and had a great amount of fun. More results will be shown throughout the year!
For the second project will be working on a photographic book with my 120 year old Victorian wedding dress. I’m going to photograph all the people that will be visiting me with this dress. This project started last weekend as well and the first shots are ready, so it’s going to be loads of fun shooting everyone in this dress. It’s based on shooting people as they are, their personalities. I want the people to come out in the shot, not the dress, it’s a wonderful means of working it.
I’m looking forward to it!
