Tokyo 2018

So I went to Tokyo with Jens a couple of weeks ago! For so many years I told my self, I want to go to Tokyo, and guys! I DID IT! And it was the coolest trip I’ve made so far. 1 day in and I already knew that this wouldn’t be my last visit.

I don’t know where to start, the food, the culture, the hype, the people, the lights! I’m gonna let the pictures speak for themself. I also made a movie about the trip, check it out if you haven’t seen it <3

Hope you like the post! <3

Voodoo, The Progress

I don’t really know where to start on this one. I got some questions on how I made my last post and how long it took in photoshop, I didn’t really keep a timer on it, but I think I spent around 20-30 hours all in all, to make all the pictures that I posted in last weeks post. Then I guess one has to add the 4 hour photo shoot on that.

The items and textures added on with the magic of photoshop, are my own pictures, creative commons and from other collections.

For everything else, me and Nasime saved and found random stuff that we thought would fit into the shoot. Like old cans, jars, candles, plants and other stuff.

 

So here you go, a little behind the photoshop scene!

If you haven’t seen the post from last week’s, check it out, might make more sense if you look at that one first.

In all honesty, with a little order and text you can come a long way. It’s easy to get lost in all the layers once you get started. Just naming some of the layers saves you a lot of time, and I mean A LOT of time. I learnt that the hard way.

Shooting With Colors – photoshoot collaboration project

As I mentioned last week I had the awesome opportunity to work with some amazing people. For the second photoshoot (last weekend) I Worked with my amazing friend/model Nasime Brown and the talented makeup artist Patricia Kara. Also got to work with Emmanuel Junglander who took the time to set up his black magic camera, and filmed some of the behind the scenes from the shoot!

So this time I brushed up on my 2 and 3 point lighting, using lifx bulbs – The lightbulb reinvented, and the smartest Wifi light bulb I’ve seen.

Here are some pics from the shoot! Make sure to check out Nasime, Patricia and Emmanuel on Instagram/websites, If you wanna know more about them. I’m gonna post the links further down!
