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。

Blue Frog 蓝蛙酒吧鸡尾酒拍摄


CLIENT: Blue Frog Bar & Grill

WHAT: Cocktail with surrounding drinks and bottles

WHEN:  August 2009

WHERE: Blue Frog Bar & Grill, Xujiahui venue

WHY: Blue Frog wanted photographs of their food and beverages for in-store, menu, and online advertisement

HOW: For this image, product placement was crucial. The color and shape of each bottle and drink was very important to create the right atmosphere for the product. Originally, there was a frosty white bottle in the background where the blue Sky vodka bottle is. The seemingly obvious decision to switch the bottle was made for the better mix of colors, overall feel of the photograph, as well as the color tying in nicely with the name of the restaurant. As an additional plus, we realized that SKYY Vodka is one of the main vodka suppliers to Blue Frog.

To highlight the cocktail, we used one light for the overhead as well as another to add an extra emphasis on the Blue Frog design. Various grids were used to light the surrounding bottles and scrim to bounce the exuding light back into frame.

FUN FACT This was Justin’s very first shoot with Scott and Limelight Studio, and ended up holding a large scrim overhead for the better part of two hours.
