Author: George Jardine
Earlier last month I carried out a photo shoot at the studio I work from in London, where Jeff Schewe and George Jardine from Adobe came over to document the entire process from discussing the concept, to the model casting and the actual shoot itself (see the Photoshopnews.com London story). The purpose of this photographic shoot was two-fold. Firstly, I wanted to capture some new pictures that could be used in my Lightroom 2.0 book (published by Adobe Press/Peachpit), including a new cover shot, plus Adobe were interested in acquiring new images that could be used to demo Lightroom and Photoshop. I am pretty pleased with the way it turned out. Even though I now notice that I stupidly got the first model, Yuliya’s name wrong. Sorry Yuliya!
“This podcast was recorded on Wednesday March 12, 2008 at Martin’s home in London. It gives us a rare glimpse into the inner thinking of this talented fashion and beauty photographer, as he gives us a shot-by-shot evaluation of a recent session. This video footage was taken during a photo session to create assets both for an upcoming Lightroom book, as well as for demo purposes for Adobe Systems. In it Martin describes his approach to every element of the shoot, from the model selection, the hair, the makeup, the lighting and camera angles, all the way through to the final edit.
This video podcast can be downloaded from my iDisk. It can also be viewed by downloading it directly into iTunes (if you are accessing it by subscribing via the Music Store), or by copying it into iTunes on either a Mac or a PC (if you’ve downloaded the iPod version from my iDisk). Once copied into iTunes, the small version can be transferred to a Video iPod or iPhone, and viewed that way as well.
Special thanks to Jeff Schewe for the use of his photos in the podcast as well.
