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。

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。
