Mobile Studio in Detail

The idea of the Studio "Mobile" was born from the observation that many people want to be photographed, but once in front of the goal, some stress the wins and it becomes almost impossible to capture a natural image and pleasant.

Remember the days of the day of the "Class Photo" and excitement that this event could cause.

Whenever you find yourself on familiar ground in the middle of its habitat or in his business, things are radically different and I have often noticed that a known location encouraged more privacy and a special complicity between the photographer and his model to give free rein to a rewarding creation.

The photographic equipment

As complete as possible for mastering the art of the portrait, I can move very easily with all my equipment because the assembly is fully optimized to capture your portrait to the four corners of the planet.

Studio uses only professional equipment and recognized brands for their reliability. There are many years that I set my heart on the Nikon F2 Titanium since my first until the last ultimate weapon, the D800e which with its 36 megapixel competition the world of medium format dedicated to the world fashion and expansions consistent, identical in construction, but the handling and comfort are quite consistent with the photo of portrait and reportage that allows a prodigious expansion with superb definition.

Regarding lenses, a range of primes and zooms, wide aperture and the essential lens for any good portrait, the 85 mm f1.4 AF-D complements the studio equipment.

Having a high-performance camera can not really speak with the objectives of a flawless optical quality and Nikkor range is undoubtedly (Leitz apart) the most comprehensive and most efficient in the market.

To ignore the optical quality would be like "putting a tractor engine in a race car".

The light equipment

Light called "continuous", is conceived with various projectors Desisti and Arri typed cinema incandescent equipped with Fresnel lenses offer a specific characteristic directional light portraits of the stars of the 50s developed by a renowned Parisian studio. It is the prerogative of the exclusive offer "Hollywood" of Studio Forand. The advantage of a visual control of the luminous flux, but in return, a clearance of some heat and the need for a power supply.

The "strobist" method is meanwhile in the use of multiple flashes hand-held powerful CLS Nikon. With experience and many small accessories developed by myself, it quite possible to render almost identical to the first solution with the added advantage that the total energy autonomy because there is no need Connection to the mains and is especially economical because with the formula "Flash Tradi", the first all-inclusive price benefit is 250 €.

The photographic processing and image processing

All steps contributing to the final image are important, but the treatment that it is even more so because it requires many hours to make choices by selecting from a large number of photos taken at the meeting shooting. It is relatively easy to photograph, it is much less easy to self-criticism by choosing a particular type of image, both for technical reasons, but often because the "spark" is not there.

It follows a painstaking job to get the perfect picture settings after multiple dedicated to the development and even if it becomes our digital era, it remains complex because software replacing chemical baths can almost do all the time that we have a global vision and a mastery of the tools.

Again, Studio uses references peak material with products like Adobe LightRoom for development or Adobe Photoshop for image editing in continually updating versions. Other software, scripts and specific personal filters help treat specific details.

Printing

The Studio Forand develops its own ICC profiles for Epson professional printers such Stylus Pro 3800 for A2 + prints (17 "- 43 cm) with a resolution of 2880x1440 DPI optimum quality.

This printer model papers associated with the professional range "Fine Art" from Tetenal and Ilford allow a return of contrast and sharpness of image unwavering ensure increased longevity of my supports.

 

 

 

Dimensions greater museum quality prints "Fine Art"

The Studio has partnered with a specialized professional laboratory processing photos "Fine Art" Black & White to make enlargements of incomparable quality and perenity warranty.

I was able to establish a relationship of trust with the intervention of a single point of contact on all my laboratory that gives them continuity in the quality of finish that is quite the work of photographer and contributes largely in mind that you get the picture.

After many attempts, I decided to use for prints large papers range "Fine Art" from Hahnemühle famous for the softness of its grain, the incomparable respect the original contrast and excellent durability time.

Deadlines are usually required, but I prefer to take the time necessary to achieve a high quality product.

Publication and dissemination

Studio Forand sets up a "privilege" access system that allows customers to track the progress of operations on its work to the diffusion in a restricted access area to secure a personal gallery grouping selected events during the shooting.
