Stage 1 - from idea to image

We selected the image for the street summer shooting quite quickly. The basic concept was the lightness, simplicity and style of the model. Denis used all things from his own wardrobe, as he regularly updates the assortment of clothes. According to the format, we determined to use the available spots in Kiev for photo shoots, which will not be crowded. It became the National Museum of Art, a cycle track with the territory next to it, a cafe in the city center, and in the end - a photo studio W.

Stage 2 - Time and Place

Since, according to the plan, it was a summer street photo shoot, we agreed to hold it in beautiful places of the city, where there will be fewer people. The photos should have been light and natural, without any load from passers-by. The main emphasis was on the image and style of a healthy, athletic young guy. Another important factor was the fact that Denis is a fruit-eater (yes, he eats exclusively fruits). In the shooting, it was necessary to make scenes that he could use for posts dedicated to his food style. For this, we chose a cafe in the eco-friendly style, in the center of Kiev, where various different plants were located and it was possible to order vega dishes. We decided to make the final part in the Kiev photo studio - W, Nivelir Hall.

Shooting day: How it was?

Due to the fact that not long before the shooting, Denis returned from Thailand, his skin was clean and tanned. We decided not to make an extra skin tone, but he did the styling on his own. Met by 10 in the morning, at the museum, we immediately started shooting. The photoshoot took place on a weekday, and we were lucky that the museum did not have excursions. In fact, at the location we were only two of us. After, we went to the Sports Palace to the planned restaurants. It is worth noting that with this format of moving around the city, using your own car, difficulties arise when parking in the center, there is no banal space and you have to leave the car 600-1000 m from the location, bypassing this distance on foot. Because of this, there is a loss of time and effort for everyone - the model and the photographer. After fulfilled tasks, we went to the cycle track, and shot some of the content provided for by the plan there. Why such an order? The route was planned taking into account the optimization of the distance and time required to get to the survey points. So we won more than 1 hour, and 40 km, than if we had not planned all the details. After we went to the studio, where we closed the last part of the plan.

Selection, color correction and retouching

The entire summer photo session on the streets of Kiev lasted more than 4.5 hours. During this time I made more than 500 frames. After importing into LR and rejecting, a series of 200 shots remained, approximately 50 per location. This material went to further work. We made color correction, control of contrast and sharpness, exposure control and white balance. In my work I do not use presets and setups, I always paint photos manually, since all photographs have unique basic parameters (locations, colors and lights). After the series was ready, it was transferred to Denis as a project, where he selected a photo for retouching. This retouched series is presented on the page, I hope you enjoyed it!
