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。

The Longement Shanghai 上海龙之梦丽晶酒店拍摄暴风雨


If you look closely at the clouds, what do you see? A friend pointed out an image of a dragon breathing fire down onto the city. Another said it looked like a bird flying across the city.       如果   你近距离观察云朵,你会看到什么?一位朋友指出图片中好像一条龙正在城市上空盘旋。另一位朋友说它象一只横飞过城市上空的鸟。

如果你近距离观察云朵,你会看到什么?一位朋友指出图片中好像一条龙正在城市上空盘旋。另一位朋友说它象一只横飞过城市上空的鸟。

WHAT: Shanghai's skyline lit up by a colossal thunderstorm

WHERE: Longemont Hotel – 52nd floor Business Lounge

WHEN: August 2010

WHY: This thunderstorm was one of the biggest storms during the year causing power outages, hail, and various flooding throughout the city. Missing this moment to capture the grandeur of this storm was out of the question. 

HOW: This photograph was shot with only a tripod during a period of a couple of minutes. Scott grabbed the second camera that he had brought along with the tripod and hurried over quickly to take the shot before the storm passed. Usually, to capture an image like this, you need to use a fairly long shutter speed to capture the lightening striking down on to the city but for this instance, the storm came in during the day and despite the clouds and thunderstorm, the skies were still quite bright. There are difficulties taking long exposures during the day because of the added light, so Scott had to find the perfect balance not to overexpose the shot but capture the lightening as well. 

CAMERA: Canon 10D with 24-70mm lens

PHOTOGRAPHER: Scott Wright | Limelight Studio

2010年在拍摄上海龙之梦丽晶酒店期间,有一场巨大的雷阵雨袭击了上海。照亮了城市的天际。幸运的是,Limelight Studio团队在酒店的52层正利用这个机会拍摄暴风雨

事件:一场巨大的暴风雨点亮了上海的夜空

拍摄地点:Longemont酒店——52层休息厅

拍摄时间:2010年8月

拍摄缘由:此次暴风雨是当年中最大的一场并且引起了电力中断,冰雹以及城中发大水。十分想念拍摄此次壮观暴风雨的时刻。

拍摄方法:这一张图片只是用了三脚架和延时摄影的方法。我们除了拿着三脚架还抓着另一只相机以迅雷不及掩耳之势拍摄,为了就是能赶在在暴风雨消失之前记录下这一时刻。通常,拍一张像这样的图片,你需要用慢门来拍摄天际中的闪电。因为在一天中拍摄长时间曝光的照片是有一点难度的,由于光线会一点点的增加,所以我们找到了一个很好的曝光平衡来拍摄闪电。

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.

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。

Banyan Tree Oasis 上海外滩悦榕庄大酒店江景房拍摄


Panorama Oasis

Panorama Oasis

CLIENT: Banyan Tree Shanghai on the Bund; Banyan Tree Hotels and Resorts

WHAT: The “Oasis with Romantic Pool” room

WHEN: September 2012

WHERE: Banyan Tree Shanghai on the Bund

WHY: Banyan Tree wanted promotional photographs for their rooms and suites to show a quiet escape from the hustle and bustle of city life. They wanted their photographs to portray a quiet serene getaway feel with warm colors as well as the great view of the Huangpu River and Shanghai’s skyline.

HOW: For this shot, the pool and the view were the most important aspects of the room, therefore we decided the best angle to represent these aspects in addition to the feel and space of the area, was through a straight on shot.

The lighting needed to accentuate the existing mood, so we enhanced the existing lighting, while selectively choosing a few features to give an extra kick and highlight. There were extra lights added to the hotel’s overhead lights to emphasize the lighting on the cushions as well as the pool. Then, the couch was lit to show a bit of the texture of the fabric and to add a bit of contrast with the finish of the wood flooring. Lastly, to get a clear shot of Shanghai’s skyline, we went to the rooftop of the Banyan Tree to get a clear unobstructed long exposure to achieve a nice glow of the building lights (we always try to mimic the actual angle and view to stay consistent with the room), which complemented to the overall warm feel of the image.

客户:上海外滩悦榕庄大酒店

拍摄对象: 悦心池浪漫全江景房

拍摄时间:2012月9月

拍摄地点:上海外滩悦榕庄大酒店

拍摄缘由: 悦榕庄大酒店想要为它们的客房及套房拍摄一组宣传照片,目的是展示一个自在安静远离城市喧嚣的生活空间。此外,他们也希望照片能描绘出一个映衬窗外黄浦江并与天际对比出暖色调的壮丽美景,使贵宾内心平静下来。

方法 首先,选取拍摄的位置和角度,必须是最能代表总体感觉的空间区域。在这张照片中,泳池以及景观是房间中最重要的两方面,因此,正面直接拍摄这两部分特征至关重要。

其次,灯光的选择需要强调出这种感觉,所以选择正确的灯光类型也是十分重要的。我们在天花板上打了光,同时着重强调打在靠垫和泳池的光线。此外,沙发也被灯光照亮以此来展示布料的质感同时和木质游泳池有一些对比的感觉,最后,为了得到一张干净清晰的天际线照片,我们特地去悦榕庄酒店的天台拍了一张清晰、一览无余,长曝光照片,以此表现出高楼大厦通明璀璨流光溢彩的夜色,同时也完整地增加了照片地温暖感。
