Story about communication in relationships nowadays. iPads were used as lights in this picture with two yongnuo speedlights, so I used higher iso and wider aperture as usual. Other yongnuo was on a boom with beauty dish and grid, other was bounced from the wall behind the camera for fill.
I made couple of images to the food theme. I have seen this egg sperm thing done with at least spring onions, carrots and sprouts. I managed to get the egg broken but at that point I was tired enough that I thought I’ll fix it in post, which was a quick fix. I have done chili and paprika images before and this time I thought to use them in this fat/thin pair. I chose totally different post processing for the images. I usually try to find styles that work best for the images and not do everything with the specific style.
I thought that this image inspired by Rolling Stones magazine cover of Yoko Ono and John Lennon would fit nicely to my relationship series. It gets quite a lot more macabre with fat piggy lying in the bed and I also wanted to make an image where woman seems to be more interested about the camera and the man is more submissive on the womans side. From a color point of view it also loans something from american beauty poster. I used boom arm to raise the camera to the roof as it worked nicely in previous above the bed shoot too. I then photographed several shots about the sheets alone and used those to enlarge the bed to the king size model.
