Over the course of a few days in the month of June, we had the joy of taking a total of fourteen personality shots of the big personnel at the Jing An Shangri-La as well as eight product shots of some of the featured dishes from the various restaurants within the hotel.

As you can see from the numerous behind-the-scenes snapshots below, this was an exciting and interesting couple of days because we had the opportunity to meet and interact with the big personalities of the Shangri-La and capture them in their environment that best described them and their personality as well as the great work that they do.

Depending on the individual and the environment that they work in, we changed the lighting to accommodate the atmosphere we were trying to create around them. For example, we went for a moodier feel to represent some of the chefs at the 1515 West Bar & Grill by using soft box lighting down or a ring flash on the personality to intensify the overall feel of the photograph. Whereas, for the chefs of Café Liang, the goal was to have a bright open atmosphere therefore, we took advantage of the big windows and the enhanced the natural daylight feel.

Scott wanted to do something a little different for Franco Brodini, the head executive chef of the Shangri-La Jing An, so he decided to incorporate a ring flash for a unique look.

正如你从下方的幕后快照中可以看到,我们度过了既开心又有趣的几天因为我们有这个机会与酒店里的员工交往并互动,再进一步了解他们后,才能在他们工作环境内捕捉到最能形容人物性格特点的照片,也能更好地体现出他们的价值。

根据每位员工以及他们所工作的环境,我们试图改变采光来打造属于他们的一个氛围。举例来说,在表现1515牛排馆的一些厨师上面,我们通过使用柔光箱将光线朝下,或是利用环形闪光灯在人物特写上面创建一些戏剧性的阴影,增强照片的整体感觉,尽力求得一种喜怒无常的感觉。

CLIENT: Interbrand for The Paragon by CapitaLand

WHAT: Promotional stills in conjuction with a TVC

WHEN: August 2010

WHERE: Various locations including Limelight Studio, El Patio Restaurant, and a nearby park.

WHY: Limelight Studio was asked to take promotional stills for Paragon Service Departments who were doing a TVC. While shooting on location at El Patio Restaurant, time constraint was a big factor. Scott had to shoot the talent in between video takes within ten-minute increments whereas for the silhouettes shots, time was more flexible but, there was no professional talent hired.

HOW: To shoot the silhouettes, a pack was used with a scrim frame. A bike was brought into the studio and then the second shot was taken outside at a park bench. Both shots were superimposed onto the background that was preapproved by the client.

客户:茂名公馆; 凯德集团

拍摄对象:剧照拍摄

拍摄时间:2010年8月

拍摄地点:包括Limelight Studio在内的许多地方, El Patio餐厅以及附近的一个公园

拍摄缘由:Limelight Studio受邀为凯德集团旗下的茂名公馆拍摄剧照。当在El Patio餐厅拍摄时,少量的时间是一个事实。我们必须在广告拍摄间隙完成拍摄,时间只有十分钟。

拍摄方法:为了拍摄出人物的轮廓,我们用到了一组蝴蝶布。同时Justin和艺术总监同时入镜,与模特进行一些交流。影棚中还放置了一辆自行车因为第二张照片需要在室外拍摄,地点的选择是公园的长椅。两张照片与背景的关系十分清楚,层次感十足。

花絮:Justin作为这两张照片中的男主角同时艺术总监也参与了拍摄,而照片中的另一位女主角也是我们的朋友。
