Making Patterns

We managed to squeeze in one last photoshoot on Monday morning in my brother’s old flat, and in the afternoon I handed back the keys so the cleaners for the move could get in the day after. Tilda Kristiansson only had a few hours before she needed to head out for work, so we got started right away. You can make great moody photos with a projector in a dark room, but since the sun was up and shining through the windows, even through the blinds, we decided to go for a brighter look. We placed a flash behind Tilda to eliminate the background projection behind her.

Tilda Kristiansson already did this pose in the Petricore Movement photoshoot, but wanted to do it again.

Since it was so bright in the living room, we tried an adjacent smaller room where we could shield off the light better. Since it was a smaller room, it meant I had to shoot from a closer angle, so we played around with some more compact poses.

A big thank you to Tilda for another fun photoshoot! Also, a big thank you to Josef for letting us use the apartment and projector.
