A TOTALLY FUN DAY: TOTAL WIRELESS PHOTO AND VIDEO SHOOT

We recently worked on a new campaign of images and GIFs, and we knew immediately we were in for an exciting time at the studio. With two sets for a photo and video shoot, seven models and stylists, it was a packed house full of fun! Check out more below.

We started the morning off right with the energetic Courtland. With so many different models coming in overlapping times throughout the day, it was great to start the day on a high note.

When having both a photography and video shoot in a day, you need to streamline everything as much as possible. We worked seamlessly with our team to get both a photography and green screen video set in side by side.

Hair and makeup artist Alexandra from TEAM helped make sure Gabi, the model, was looking her best on both sets!

Hiding behind the racks, you can see a glimpse our wardrobe/prop stylist Coleen, also from TEAM, hard at work. She shopped for all seven models and the different props needed for the shoot- talk about shopping ’til you drop!

The high energy start to the shoot continued throughout the entire day . Just look at this excitement! It’s safe to say we had a totally awesome day with Total Wireless!

NEW ANGLES: PHOTOGRAPHY AND VIDEOGRAPHY SHOOT

Our team always enjoys a chance to capture things from a new angle, and a recent photography and videography project for Mimecast was just the opportunity!

Our client’s aim was to capture models in a moment of ‘falling’ in to a vortex, and we think these models nailed it!

The shoot certainly required a lot of core strength from our models. To help a little, we rigged a second stool as a smaller backrest. When you have to be filmed leaning back for minutes at a time, a little support can go a long way!

Our models still got a good ab workout during this shoot!

Thanks to our video monitor, we were able to catch wardrobe stylist Coleen and hair and make up artist Maryelle in action from a whole new vantage point!

Our photo assistant Abby couldn’t help but have some fun while testing out our set!

After wrapping on a successful and fun day of video and photography, we all wanted to see if we could have been models for the shoot. What do you think?

RUNNING ON NEW BALANCE: SHOE PHOTOGRAPHY SHOOT

Earlier this year we worked with New Balance to photograph their new line of running shoes. Take a look behind the scenes of all the components that go into getting the sneakers to look just right!

In order to hit the ground running, all the different styles and colors had to be lined up in order and ready to be prepped! With so many exciting colors, it was hard to pick a favorite.

Gina, our shoe prepper, made sure all the shoes looked camera ready. No detail was left unnoticed!

She’s so focused even Sophia can’t distract her, much to Sophia’s dismay!

Getting the shoe to have the right angle and pressure can be challenging. It takes a lot of maneuvering and a few tricks to get everything just right!

Michael checks every shot and compares all the small adjustments made to make sure that no bend of the shoe or lace is out of place! As Michael would say “It’s not final unless it’s perfect”

The final images were added into graphic for two page ads in magazines.

EARTH DAY: NEW HASSELBLAD AND NEW PROFOTO LIGHTS PUT TO THE TEST

 

It takes 90% less energy to recycle an aluminum can than to manufacture a new one. That same amount of energy is enough to power a television for 3 hours. Also, only 27% of newspapers in the US are recycled. We would save 1 quarter of a billion trees a year if we recycled all newspapers. And, 14,000,000,000 pounds of garbage is tossed into the ocean a year, killing at least 1 million creatures.

 

This year, more than 192 countries, totaling over 1 billion people, came together to celebrate Earth Day to try and change these statistics.

Earth Day Social Media Post

The inspiration for our Earth Day shoot came from the idea that one small action (or drop) can create a ripple effect.

The Rig

Using magic arms, we were able to get the baster we used to create the drops, in perfect position for continuous drops, giving us lots of options to work with.

Using magic arms, we were able to get the baster we used to create the drops, in perfect position for continuous drops, giving us lots of options to work with, and eventually giving us the perfect shot for our Earth Day post.

Using our new Profoto lights with our Laser System, we were able to sync our lights to our new Hasselblad H6d-100c camera to capture the water drop right after it hit the surface of the water, freezing the splash and capturing the drop in mid air.

The water drop interrupts the laser beam firing  the strobe lights and camera simultaneously, getting the perfect shot every time.

A drop just before it hits the laser. The Profoto D2's capture the splash with no motion blur, freezing the drop in mid-air. The drop suspended in air reflects the map behind it.

We placed a world map behind the set to create a reflection resembling a globe in the drop in order to capture as much in camera as possible.

 

After getting the perfect splash image, the team needed a solution for a larger drop. Leave it to Michael to have exactly what was needed.

To get a perfect shot of the globe like reflection, the team used a custom made acrylic drop.

Using a glass drop composited into the final shot, we get the perfect reflection of the world map behind it. The New Profoto D2's light up the set.

IT’S NEVER TOO COLD FOR ICE CREAM (Part II)

With the winter refusing to give up, we’re trying to move on and warm up to something more exciting than the snow. And what’s better than some melty ICE CREAM! Let that insatiable appetite for luscious flavors and creamy textures stimulate your imagination. You will forget the cold in no time when the sensations explode, popping like fireworks from your taste buds. Your brain will instantly fall in love, as all you can think about is “ICE CREAM!” You have just been ice-creamatized!

We created these animated GIFs to illustrate that exact point – the love for ice cream never ends.

INDRESANO’S ANGELS PHOTOSHOOT (PLUS CHARLIE!)

When the cold weather hit, it meant one thing at the studio- Indresano Angel’s time! We got a date on the calendar, found our inspiration images and we were ready to go!

Maryelle Artistry came to help get the production team all ‘glammed’ up for the shoot. It’s not everyday you get to get the full Kardashian treatment!

A couple of final touches from Maryelle on set as the lighting gets set.

Executive Producer Millie stands in to help get all the final touches ready, and to show off her fabulous outfit!

Emma, Millie, and Shannon really know how to work their angels!

A quick shot behind the set shows all the work that goes into getting the lighting and set just right!

Charlie’s Angels had their mysterious leader, but we think ours is much cuter. 🙂

One last shot of Mommy and baby Michael, because we couldn’t pick just one!

BEST PHOTOGRAPHY AND VIDEOGRAPHY OF 2016!

With the beginning of 2017 upon us, it’s a good time to reflect on all the highlights and video and photo accomplishments of 2016. Here are just some of the exciting and rewarding projects we were able to work on throughout the past year.

The year started out with a trip to warmer climates for the first leg of an executive video interview series for a corporate client. Our team packed up as much of the video equipment as they could and headed off to San Diego!

The rest of the interviews took place in the snowy wonderland of Massachusetts. While the weather was a bit colder, the interviews were all just as warm and friendly, and the clients loved the final videos!

Next up was the completion of an ad campaign for a master’s program at Brown University. The high end photography was complimented by some explosive videography to push the program to the next level.

The video portion was very well received, and even won the agency, NAIL Communications, a Hatch Award towards the end of the year!

While the Boston Bruins season was in full swing, we released the exciting video of Tuukka Rask we started in 2015. His killer reflexes and crazy saves continued to excite and entertain us through the 2016 season!

Near the close of the winter, we worked with SCENE magazine to capture their Spring cover of Boston Police Commissioner William Evans. Working with the commissioner’s busy schedule, Michael and the team worked quickly to make sure the location and set up was just right. We LOVE how the final image looks on the cover of the magazine.

With the spring came new projects for new clients. The Wynn Casino opening in Everett needed a photographer to capture all the details of their 3-D model, and the Indresano team were just the ones to do it!

Before the football season got into full swing, we worked with SCENE magazine again to do a 2-day cover shoot with New England Patriots Wide Receiver Danny Amendola. We started with some shots in full (and partial) uniform at Gillette Stadium

The next day, Amendola came to the studio to show off his fashionable side. While he is a great asset to the Patriot’s team, he could certainly have a back up career as a model!

Fall was quickly here and the leaves began to fall. Our friends at Liberty Mutual took this as a time to partner with Medicine Wheel on a clean up of No Man’s Land. Our video production team captured the collaboration for all to see!

When Thanksgiving started to approach, we worked with the fun team at ’47 Brand to get some holiday-worthy images of their sports team apparel to share through the rest of the year to take us into 2017! It was a lot of moving pieces to coordinate, but in the end the results were more than worth it!

A theme throughout the 2016 year for us was ICE CREAM! As a Boston Food Photographer, we wanted to share several new GIFs and videos made throughout the year showing the many ways you can enjoy a frozen treat.

With so many exciting projects all packed into 1 year, we can’t wait to see what video and photography projects 2017 will have in store for us!

TURNING UP THE HEAT ON A VIDEO SHOOT!

It wasn’t just the summer heat keeping the studio hot! Giorgos flew from New York to be our model at the studio for a big apparel company video shoot. We had a lot of fun filming him in various different pairs of pants for their spring line. Keep an eye out for the trendy jeans and chino pants coming to stores near you! Here’s a sneak peek and behind-the-scenes look at the work that went into creating the video production and final images!
