KEEP THE BALANCE, KEEP THE FOCUS

During the lock-down, we felt that one of the challenges was to keep the focus on what matters and keep the balance among all this contradicting information circulating.
What matters, what do we need to read, how much should we discuss and talk about this pandemic or focus on the daily tasks.
We both believe that this applies not only for the time during the pandemic but applies every day.
Please scroll through the images below and let us inspire you.
These images are available as limited fine art prints.
The series is limited to 15 prints for each photo and two artist prints.

Body Art Photo Workshop

Guess it’s about time for two confessions, don’t worry nothing really bad.

Last week I promised you that I will finish the big wave photos from Nazaré, I agree the photo above doesn’t look like a big wave photo, will probably take a few more days.
Body Art Photo workshop, how comes..?
Since quite some time, over a two years I started to shoot more and more with women. All this started with a pregnancy photo of a friend and guess what, we did really well on a international contest.
So step by step this style and photos evolved, until one day I got a call from a Cirque du soleil acrobat although I haven’t really published or disclosed to many of this photos.
Here name is Laetitia and you will see many more photos of her in the future.
She proposed that we should shoot together, I’m not in here league I thought and told here.

In the mean time we had more then one shooting, and since a few weeks we call this project (notshy.art). Right before end of last year we run a private nude art photo workshop with two very ambitious photographers who really loved that day.

Why don’t we give a chance to more ambitious photographers to shoot with such an amazing model. Laetitia in the mean time got even published on the Spanish playboy magazine.

So here here we are on March 22nd we will run our first workshop. It’s a Sunday and we simply want to give 5 photographers the chance to shoot with us.
The workshop is divided in two parts:

Morning
We look at the studio light, light shaper, soft boxes etc and see how we can modify the light and play with it.
All photographers learn the using light with an egg, we organize an big ostrich egg, already did some test with it. It’s really great how you can play with shadows gradients etc.

Afternoon
In the afternoon Laetitia will join us and we will set up 4 or 5 different sets/compositions and shoot with here.

I’m really looking forward for to this day, hope you will join us.
