CLIENT: Architectural Digest (AD) Magazine

WHAT: Interior shots of various homes

WHEN: 2011-2012

WHERE: Various homes scouted by AD Magazine and crowned some of the most beautiful architectural houses in China. Limelight covers many of the homes out of Shanghai.

WHY: Limelight Studio was asked by Architectural Digest China to join them in visiting some of the most architecturally interesting homes located in Shanghai and capturing their charming style.

HOW: When shooting interiors with AD, all shots for a home usually start mid-morning and end in the early afternoon (all within a single day). Stylist(s) with the magazine scout out the homes before hand and choose key aspects they want to highlight. Then, on the day of the shoot, Limelight will go through again with the stylist(s) and decipher which composition and angle will best represent each feature. Since these homes are chosen for their spread and charm, it is extremely important to have a natural feel, true to the color and lighting of the home, therefore minimal lighting is typically used when compared to our hotel interiors.

拍摄方法:当与 AD安邸家居合作拍摄时,一间房屋的所有照片需要在一天之内拍完。AD杂志方面专门派遣一位造型设计师负责跟进此次拍摄,因为这样一来我们就可以和客户经行良好有效的沟通,也更清楚房间的哪些部分区域需要重点拍摄。然后在拍摄当天,Limelight Studio还将会仔细对房间经行一次检查,找出最佳的构图与拍摄角度。一旦选定这些房屋进行拍摄,运用自然光是十分重要的,最小输出的闪光灯也是必要的。

PuLi Hotel and Spa Lobby | 璞丽酒店大厅


PuLi Hotel Entrance Lobby

PuLi Hotel Entrance Lobby

CLIENT: ARCH 雅砌雜誌

WHAT: Promotional interior shots of the PuLi Hotel and Spa

WHEN: April 2010

WHERE: The PuLi Hotel and Spa located in the Jing-An district of Shanghai

WHY: The Taiwanese magazine reached out to Limelight Studio for a number of interior shots of the PuLi Hotel and Spa, which is highly recognized for its unique structural layout creating a relaxing and peaceful environment right in the heart of bustling Shanghai.

HOW: The enticing entrance lobby at the PuLi produces a warm inviting natural light from its floor to ceiling wide paned windows therefore minimal lighting was required to enhance the beauty of the lobby. There were just a few highlights added to give a bit of an emphasis to the furniture in the room such as the cabinet and chairs. A 5 shot bracket in 1-stop increments was done, and the shots were then combined in post-production with a combination of the selectively lit areas.

拍摄对象:璞丽酒店内景宣传照片

拍摄时间20104

拍摄地点:上海静安区璞丽酒店

拍摄缘由:台湾建筑师杂志之前已经和Limelight Studio进行过详细沟通,并针对璞丽酒店内景设计拍摄与我们探讨。希望我们的拍摄能呈现出一种高端唯一轻松的感觉完全区别于上海国际化大都市的匆忙感。

拍摄方法:拍摄璞丽酒店入口的大厅营造出一种平和的感觉,地板上自然光的反光呈现出温暖之意并把酒店衬托的更加美丽。我们拍摄时,需要增加一些高光在座椅和桌子上面,这样做的目的是使感觉更加充分。再用不同曝光的方法拍摄最后在后其中将其合成。

Connoisseur Group 手工奢侈品制作

PHOTO OF THE WEEK: CONNOISSEUR GROUP Creations

Limelight Studio was invited by Connoisseur Group to various factories around the world to see how Arts de Vivre, Maison Takuya, and Tesori create exquisite gifts and collectables that Connoisseur Group provide.

 Limelight Studio受到Connoisseur集团的邀请,前往其工厂Arts de Vivre,Maison Takuya以及Tesori参观。在那里我们亲眼见证了那些精致的礼物和藏品的创造历程。


CLIENT: Connoisseur Group

WHAT: Arts de Vivre, Maison Takyua, and Tesori "behind the scenes / making of" photos and video

WHERE: Arts de Vivre, Maison Takyua, and Tesori factories (various worldwide locations)

WHEN: August 2012

WHY: Limelight Studio was commissioned to show the making of these high-end luxury products. Wanting to focus on the intricate craftsmanship and care that go into each item, it was very important to show the hands that create these goods.

HOW: There were multiple factors that played into the lighting of these images. Traveling costs limited the amount of equipment the team could bring over. Since Limelight Studio was asked to film video as well, we had to think of lightning not just for the stills, but also the video. Ultimately no flash was used throughout the whole production because it would have disrupted the workers, and lighting with tungsten lights and LEDs allowed for a quick setup and enabled us to use the same overall lighting setup for both applications.

客户:Connoisseur Group

拍摄对象:Arts de Vivre, Maison Takuya, 以及Tesori的手工制作过程展示及幕后花絮摄影和视频

 

拍摄地点: Arts de Vivre, Maison Takyua,和Tesori工厂

拍摄时间:2012年8月

拍摄缘由:Limelight Studio被邀请去拍摄展示这些高端奢侈产品的生产过程。我们想集中表现每个错综复杂工艺的制作工序,更为重要的是,我们希望展示这些创造这些艺术品的双手。

拍摄方法:有很多因素影响着这些照片的灯光效果, 由于旅行拍摄的缘故,这在很大的程度上限制了我们团队可以携带的摄影装备。而在有限的条件下,Limelight Studio还需要拍摄视频的部分,因此我们必须考虑摄影和摄像两方面的灯光装备。最终我们在拍摄过程中没有使用闪光灯,因为这会扰乱工匠的制作。最后,所有的照片和视频都是在使用常亮灯和LED灯的情况下拍摄完成,因为这种照明搭建起来更加便捷快速,而且摄影和摄像同样适用。
