Life is what you make of it isn't it?
So, when I think of an idea to shoot for LaMode, I don't think about of what I am going to shoot but how I am going to shoot it and what kind of message I am trying to communicate to my audience. That is why post-production in any stills or motion work is so important. Not to mention the photographer’s vision and the message he or she is trying to convey in the images or motion work that they have created.
So, for this Culture editorial I shot the historic Olympic Park. It has been a place that I have wanted to document for LaMode for quite a while. So, after finding the time to spend a few hours to walk around and shoot the location. This is how my eyes dropped down and documented Olympic Park.
A lot of people wouldn’t think that this place which is 20 years old would still look slightly empty but still have enough energy to able to create a cool atmospheric filled images. I have to admit that flipping them to black and white when in post was a thought process of “I need to make these shots look more punchy and cinematic which I think have done but also at the same time create a story that will be eye catching yet still have a narrative to it. Not to mention editing a video to help add another dimension was something I was always going to produce.
Enjoy “Hidden Treasures “
