First Photoshoot i did

So, as I promised on one of my latest posts i present you some oooold photos i shot for the metal band Annihilation. These were shot maybe 7 years ago on film, with my good old Canon EOS 33. I really regret having sold it… If i recall i used the Fujifilm Superia ISO200, but I’m not sure.

It was a really fun shoot to do, and these guys were great. When i look back at these images i remember a lot of things I’ve should have done better, but it’s always good to look back and know you’ve learned something along the way, and that there’s always so much more to learn!

Hope you enjoy them! Cheers!

Portrait for “Annihilation”

After the last post, regarding the dark mood of the new F/W Versace’s collection, I remembered a portrait I did a couple years ago for the band Annihilation. The photo shown bellow is  my favorite.

Photo. Filipe Serralheiro // Model. Fábio Silva

Fábio Silva, the singer/guitar player had a really interesting image to him. And I knew I had to take advantage of his awesome tattoos, dreadlocks and his overall menacing look. ( He’s actually not menacing at all, in fact he is one of the nicest persons I know).

The shot itself is nothing more than a standard portrait, and kind of  common place for a metal musician portrait. But by carefully controlling the light and enhancing the contrasts between all the darkness (tattoos, hair, background…) and his skin, I felt really happy with the end result. So now I’m sharing it with you! 🙂

 Back then I still used my old Canon 10D and these portraits were shot using only a Canon 430 EX Speedlight and a small Photoflex Umbrella. I have some older photos from their early formation from around 2004/05, wich were actually my first photo shoot ever while still at college. I’ll maybe post them here some other day, so stay sharp! 😉

For those of you who like a little heavier music be sure to check their work here!

A quick secret though! This photo was originally shot in a white background, but after I turned it black in post-production, it gained so much more strength! What do you think?

Cheers!
