A collection of worker portraits from Ultraviolet UV餐厅建筑工人组照


Worker Portraits.jpg

WHAT: A collection of worker portraits from the Ultraviolet (UV) construction

WHEN: 2010 -2012

WHERE: The building site of UV restaurant

WHY: This was another personal project of Limelight Studio that ran parallel with the 360-degree panorama of the building construction.

HOW: On select visits to the UV site, Limelight would grab workers on the scene and take a portrait using the door frame as a guide for consistency and composition. The concept of these shots was fairly simple: Limelight felt it was important to document individuals involved in this project. Keeping them in their uniforms, dirt on their face, and sometimes tools still in hand, Justin or Scott led the workers outside in front of the restaurant construction in progress and took their photograph. Later in post-production, a handful of portraits were chosen and composited to make the final image.

FUN FACT: Scott and Justin are in the composite as well. Can you spot them?

拍摄对象:Ultraviolet餐厅建筑工人组照

拍摄时间:2010年-2012年

拍摄地点:UV餐厅施工地点

拍摄缘由:这是Limelight Studio另一个私人拍摄项目与之前的360度全景建筑拍摄项目类似。

拍摄方法:整个UV餐厅的建筑情况是相当复杂繁琐的,时间跨度也很长。每当其中的某一部分完成时,Limelight Studio都会邀请一些工人师傅来为他们拍摄个人肖像以此留念。这组照片的拍摄概念十分简单但具有非凡意义。Limelight Studio的同仁也觉得为这群工作了两年之久建设出如此美轮美奂餐厅的工人师傅拍照具有十分重要意义。拍摄时,他们身着工作服,脸上还带有工作时的尘土,手里还攥紧建筑工具,这时他们最自然的状态,最能体现他们的纯真。只听见“咔嚓咔嚓”,就这样我们为他们记录下了一张张照片。然而在后期处理中,我们甄选了部分照片并加以合成构成最后的组照。

花絮:Scott和Justin也在门前拍了。找到他们了吗?

PHOTO OF THE WEEK: Ultraviolet Chef Paul Pairet 餐厅创始人拍摄

WHAT: Owner & Chef de Cuisine, Paul Pairet

WHERE: Ultraviolet Restaurant

WHEN: October 2011

WHY: Renowned French Chef, Paul Pairet of "Mr & Mrs Bund" and "Ultraviolet" needed a portrait for promotional and media usage leading up to the opening of "Ultraviolet." Limelight Studio wanted to place Pairet in front of the projection screen since it is such an important aspect of the multi-sensory restaurant. This particular projection of the spiral was chosen because it resembles the shape of a snail. The snail represents escargot, a classic French cuisine, which ties back into Pairet's French background.

HOW: We used no additional lighting on this shot as we used the light from the projector as a key light, while the remaining ambient light was used as fill. In postproduction, the photograph was transformed into black and white with the exception of the purple spirals projected onto Paul. We don't normally like to do color isolation, but it was fitting in this case. This was done to draw an extra emphasis on the projections, to highlight Ultraviolet's signature color, and to remind the audience of the unique experience that Ultraviolet provides when dining at their restaurant.

客户:创始人&主厨 de Cuisine, Paul Pairet

拍摄地点:Ultraviolet 餐厅

拍摄时间: 2011年10月

拍摄缘由:知名法式餐厅主厨Paul Pairet-“Mr&Mrs Bund”和“Ultraviolet”餐厅创始人,想要拍摄人物肖像和视频以此来庆祝餐厅的开幕。Limelight Studio想让主角站在保护屏幕的前方因为这在餐厅中是一个很重要的方向。选择这个特别的旋转保护屏是因为它的形状看起来象蜗牛。而蜗牛在法式菜肴中是一道经典的烹饪菜品且又与Pairet的法式背景相融合。

拍摄方法:我们用保护屏散发出来的光线作为主光源,不需要太强的光线因为保护屏散发出来的光线足以照亮背景。在后期制作方面,摄影师将照片转变成黑白颜色除了Paul身上的紫色部分。因为这个颜色是餐厅的主色调。这样做的用意是强调主体并让用餐者可以在餐厅用餐时有一个独一无二的体验。

Ultraviolet: 360 Construction In Progress 全球首家感官餐厅Ultraviolet上海建设记录


Over the course of two years, Limelight Studio shot a series of 360-degree photographs of the construction of Paul Pairet’s newly built project, the Ultraviolet restaurant. The construction began in 2010 where Scott began to shoot the structure of the building. From there, Scott and Justin would periodically return to capture the progression of the construction.

WHAT: 360 Series- Progression of UV restaurant construction

WHERE: The Ultraviolet restaurant

WHEN: 2010 – 2012

WHY: The vision that Paul Pairet had for his new restaurant required a very specific building. Limelight Studio wanted to document the development of this space by creating a 360-degree series of each major change or addition made to the structure.

HOW: To take this series, no lights were required. A tripod with a 360 head was set up at the same mark on the floor to make sure the photographs were taken at the same point each time.

历时两年,Limelight Studio为Paul Pairet旗下的新餐厅Ultraviolet拍摄了一系列的360度建设照片。餐厅始建于2010年,而Scott就从那时开始拍摄该建筑的结构。为了拍摄此次建造的进程,他和他的团队周期性地往返那里。

项目:360度系列照——UV餐厅建设进程

地点:Ultraviolet餐厅

时间:2010 – 2012

缘由:Paul Pairet希望他的新餐厅有一种全新而特别的构造。因此Limelight Studio此次也十分想记录这一空间的发展,这需要通过360度的视角拍摄来记录这个建筑的重要变化以及一些附加的结构。

方法:拍摄此次系列照,我们不需要任何灯光,只需每次把三脚架和360度脚架装置放在地上的相同标记即可,这样可以确保每次的拍摄都在同一个点上。
