X-Rite Coloratti Photos of the Week – August 2017
by Nicola Cox – September 11th, 2017
Sanjay Jogia – “Desert Rose”
Our first Coloratti feature was Sanjay Jogia with “Desert Rose” shot in Dubai, using the Canon EOS-1DX, 1/250 sec, f/11, ISO-640, Canon24-70 f/2.8-L II @44mm. Sanjay also used a bare bulb Profoto B1 to camera left on a light stand held by his assistant. He captured this image of Soni and Jaz on moving camels during a particularly windy day in the desert surrounding Dubai. This image was captured for the couple’s pre-wedding photo shoot.
“The combination of the location, the sand dunes blowing over to the left, the couple’s expressions and the angle of the light from the flash with colour tones, all add to the drama and mystery of the overall narrative,” says Sanjay.
Paloma Rincón – “The Pineapple”
Paloma Rincón was next to feature with her bold and bright image “The Pineapple”. This image joins Paloma’s “Heat Wave” series and plays on the idea of the extreme weather conditions in Madrid. In this part of the personal project, two different elements are meeting to create a perfectly recognizable new object.
“The graphic new piece stands isolated in a colourful background giving it an iconic dimension. In this project, I ironically play with the summery ideas of freshness, thirst and swimming with clear references to the traditional still life and a contemporary approach to composition and colour” explains Paloma.
Martin Dörsch – “Christiane at the Marina”
Our final Coloratti to feature in August was Martin Dörsch with “Christiane at the Marina”. The Austrian photographer captured this stunning using a Sony Alpha 7mk2 with an 85mm lens. This image is the perfect example of Martin’s naturally beautiful portraits. Martin also captures story telling images and wedding photographs.
“I used all natural light to capture this image with high noon sun which helped me to achieve complimentary skin tones. It was lots of fun to shoot!” comments Martin.
