A couple of images I shot for Trafic, a Montreal based company that services trade shows. Here: Zodiac Aerospace booth at Helicopter Expo in Anaheim, CA. It was extremely important for the client to make the images correspond to the renderings used by sales team. Great time working with Marie-Josée Frigon.
Once again, Alpa proves to be an invaluable tool for assignments like this. Later on that day, I moved on to take some detail images and all I had to do is to switch camera body to Mamiya 645. All the settings remained the same as I was simply moving the sensor from one camera to the other. Shooting the same environment, with the same light conditions, only concentrating on products, rather than architectural shots. It is really genius I have to say that. Many thanks to Bear Images, Inc. for your help and expertise. I can’t wait to get my Toyo 45AX and Phase One Flex adapter back from SK Grimes. This will let me use my 4x5 lenses, macro bellows and camera movements for product photography. It seems a perfect combination: a portable and fast medium format body, a technical travel camera, and a studio/field 4x5 camera, all of them with assortment of corresponding lenses and all that on one Phase One sensor. File look the same, WB is the same all over the project, post is predictable. That’s what I call a proper workflow!

When in Berlin…If you happen to be in Berlin on March 1 you might want to stop by Buch Bund for this event:
from Buch Bund:
In 2006 American artist Soliman Lawrence went to Poland. Neither Jewish nor Polish he struggled to find a visual language that reflects the complicated reality that has grown up in place of German death camps and once vibrant stehtls.
On March 1st in Buchbund, Soliman Lawrence, along with Polish cultural historian Magdelana Waligorska, will discuss his work in the context of documentation, media and memory. Video and photography from his project “To those whose faith has been broken” will be on view.
Beginning at 7 pm.
The talk will be IN ENGLISH.
Fighter’s Room World Premiere!
