With my friend Matti Weinberg (insta: https://www.instagram.com/mattu.photography/ I had a fantastic shoot on Friday. As it is sometimes, I had seen a model on his pictures, which I found very interesting in expression. He had worked with her a couple of times and I was impressed by her interesting face and expression.

Kurz darauf kam eine Nachricht von Matti: “Hallo lieber Marco! Hab gute Nachrichten von Mimi… sie ist dabei mit einem Shooting mit Dir…”

I did not expect it at all, but I thought it was really great and so our shoot came pretty quickly. The same week. Having a camera in hand after such a long time was almost weird. Of course, I hadn't even photographed the whole lockdown because of COVID-19. But of course you can get back in there quickly.

After Mimi arrived, we had lunch and talked. Personal contact is very important to me. You can break the ice, build trust and find a common ground for conversations.

After lunch, we started. Mimi was very inspiring and she has a lot of experience. This made our work easy and wonderful pictures were taken.

Alle Bilder hier sind mit einem sogenannten “One-Light Set-up” entstanden. Ich liebe es, mit nur einem einzigen Licht zu arbeiten und dabei interessante Bilder zu gestalten. Diese Einfachkeit bietet eine optimale Kommunikation mit dem Model und – wie ich finde – braucht es auch gar nicht mehr als das.

Here are a few making-of pictures of our shoot.
