How to shoot an agency

November 21st, 2013

I got the assignment to shoot the advertising agency Frosting à la Mad Men, it’s for a thing they will be doing later this year. How much fun isn’t that!? Myself and Jonas at Frosting started last week by scouting locations, the one we felt would work best was the bar at The Bishops Arms just beside Knaust Hotel.

Today i got there at noon and started setting up the lights right away, i had to try to guess where all the ten persons would stand. In the back of the bar i set up a smoke machine to make the back of the picture less “contrasty”.

We had got a bunch of small props as well! Life magazine, ashtrays, lighter, a notebook in brown leather etc. We also had a bunch of fake drinks set up on the bar. All the hair and makeup was made by My and she even helped me get some behind-the-scenes-images! Great job!

To be able to control al the colors in post easier i filtered all the lights after the ambient light in the bar, then it was show time! I shot the image on a 1/2 of a second so i had the mirror up and the models dead still! But of course it was sharp as a razor any way 😉

    Otroligt skön bild, kul att det finns kunder som faktiskt genomför en sån idé. Jag gjorde en Gudfader-liknande grej för något år sedan, men den bilden ville de aldrig ha sen. Ganska trist.

    Tack Stefan! Ja, det är roligt med kunder som vågar genomföra lite crazy grejer! Grattis till Procenter-vinsten förresten!
