    SPORTWEEK DREAMS: DAYANE’S PICTURES

    The fourth and second last model we shot was the Brazilian Dayane Mello.

    After 3 “aquatic” editorials we decided to perform the editorial with a completely different approach and setting: an elegant indoor location, with swimwear/dress, accessories and hair/makeup perhaps more appropriate to a clothing editorial rather than a swimwear editorial.

    We set the whole thing in a sensational place guests of a very kind friend.

    Here are the images:

    This is the backstage video:

    And this is the video I shot myself:

    And here is the video of Dayane’s interview.

    THE SAME PLACE BUT NOT THE SAME PHOTOGRAPHER

    You often hear saying “if I had that top model!”, “if I had taken the photographs at the Maldives instead of the Idroscalo” all of it obviously refers to another photographer whom had all those fortunes by doing (hopefully!) a marvellous job.

    Then it obviously does not work like that because also at the Maldives it rains and also the top model has bags under her eyes and woke up the wrong side of the bed.

    I often thought that it would be very interesting to put different photographers together in the same identical situation and see how the different outcomes would be filtered by the different responsiveness and capabilities.

    This introduction actually has little to do with the argument in this post.

    Lets get to the point: a few days ago my friend toni and I where kindly invitedd to go on top of the branca tower, here in Milan. Wonderful show, with a Milan from above that gave all of herself at sunset.

    Everyone obviously started snapping away at the view, and obviously so did Toni and I, both of us with the iPhone.

    This is my photograph:

    This is Toni Thorimbert’s photo:

    Two images could not be more different!

    I took the “nice postcard”, getting to the point of even using HDR (I am fully aware that this procedure has been declared illegal by unesco, I take full responsability with the admission of serious guilt. I promise I will not do it again…). Toni turned his eye exactly at the opposite side, looking for the darkness instead of the light.

    I don’t want to go any further in the analysis, and (obviously!) far be it from me trying to find a better or worse in the choices.

    I just purely wanted to show how the same thing can be seen and photographed in completely different ways.

    (I apologise to my twenty five readers, but, I admit it, this post was thought and written for the use and consumption of mr. Matteo Oriani: Matteo get involved!)

    SPORTWEEK DREAMS: LINDA’S PICTURES

    … and so we carry on with the presentation of the swimwear editorial we made for sportweek.

    The third model we photographed was the italian Linda Morselli

    Her location was this one.

    The idea behind her photoshoot was not only to give importance to her but also at the fundamental presence in a move to the Caribbean: the sun!

    So we shot in quite an unusual situation for an editorial based outside that is, both in units of time and place, therefore working always in the same place and more or less at the same time (sunset). Obviously we worked across several days, giving a lot of importance to the positions and movements of Linda’s body.

    Here are the images:

    This is the backstage video:

    And this is the video I shot myself:

    We even have an interview with Linda: here

    MEETINGS

    Yes, lets name them like that: meetings, so that we avoid all the other little words that have been (as we know very well already!) too used and abused.

    I will be in Corigliano Calabro from the 29th of June to the 1st of July.

    To do what? To speak about what? To teach (!) what? I absolutely don’t know! Having nothing to learn how is it ever going to be possible to teach anything?!?

    It would be fascinating to show off with what the artist German Cueto wrote on the plaque of his study: “we will tell you only what you guess, using our incongruent tools.

    We arrange interstellar trips. We know the surface area of space. Our measurements are based on the fourth dimension. We listen to the heart of the infinite.

    Want to be a hero? We know the plans for the future, we might suggest a route in the events. Visit us.

    Free advice for the poor of imagination.”

    But no, it’s too much, even for a cocky individual like me…

    There is nothing else left but to post below, as is, the program that the conscientious organisers have asked me to fill out.

    I, on two feet, have filled it in like this:

    SPORTWEEK DREAMS: NATALIA’S PICTURES

    My second model that we shot in the Caribbean was the beautiful Natalia Borges.

    The location where we set the shoot was here: it is one of the most characteristic spots of the British Virgin Islands, imense rocks leaning onto each other as if they were put there by giants.

    The idea behind Natalia’s Photo shoot can be summed into one word: mimicry. We tried to fuse the model, the bathing suits and the rocks into one harmonious palette of colours and shapes.

    Here are the images:

    Here is the backstage video:

    And here is the video shot by me:

    SPORTWEEK DREAMS: THE MANJA PICTURES

    … and here are the editorials for sportweek dreams.

    Lets go in the chronological order of the shooting. The first model was the serbian Manja Babovic.

    We executed the shooting on a beautiful beach, wild and deserted: this one

    I wanted to shoot Manja in a wild and sexy manner, like the beach itself, giving the model and the location almost the same importance. I therefore took all the images in an horizontal format, so that also graphically the model and the place would carry the same weight.

    Here are the photographs:

    This is the backstage video of the shooting:

    And this is the so called authorial video which means shot by me:
