I was assisting JP Palmunen with sugar skull makeup themed shoot and got to take couple of shots myself. One of the shots was actually for testing lights but it was so humorous that I decided to include it in the final pictures.
Although it’s been so cold I’m not sure this can be called summer. Still after photographing mainly in studio for a long and cold winter it was time to get some fresh air for the camera in a form of couple of photo trips. With fellow photographers one of the trips headed to Botania, botanical and tropical butterfly garden that had nice selection of butterflies. I’m surely going to use those in composite images later. Parrot was photographed through a steel cage with full aperture. I handled both parrot and butterfly pictures like a portraits and replaced the backgrounds to suit more to my taste.
Continuing with the Mr Black character. This picture started as a joke but it was too fun idea not to do it for real. I guess this is the scene that happened before the courtroom picture. We tested the iPad timelapse feature during the shooting and I added some editing phases to the end to make this ‘Making Of’ -video.
I was assisting/documenting JP in the joker themed shoot. Here’s resulting time-lapse from the makeup.
