My second week and we were on the road for a location shoot. Kudos to Maggie Model, Ilima for handling the heat so well in late August! She was relieved when this shot was positioned in the shade.

Built for autonomous driving, the Model 3 has a remarkably sparse dashboard, sporting only a pronounced display to show any bit of info that the driver (or lack-thereof) might need.

 The interior of the car was stylish, and the exterior was streamlined, yet decidedly futuristic. In other words, it is a dream car to photograph. The details are astounding.

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!

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!

WARDROBES & WINDEX: MY FIRST WEEK AS AN INTERN

“Cream or sugar?” It’s the clichéd but fail-proof question lurking in the back of my mind on Day 1 of any internship. Somehow my social awkwardness didn’t scare away the interviewers, and the much-anticipated first day leaves my mind spinning. Will it be super corporate? Will the rest of the team like me? Will I learn about the industry or practice my barista skills? “Point me to the Keurig,” I think, just to be on the safe side.

I am so grateful to say those anxieties evaporated the second I entered Michael Indresano Photography. The studio is stunning. It’s modern and sophisticated yet fun and energetic. Early 2000s R&B blasts on the radio all day. Oh, did I mention there’s a dog? Take a look at the majestic Sofia who keeps us company:

Just when I thought things couldn’t get better, Michael let us know we would be having a shoot later in the week for a company specializing in beauty products. Check out some behind the scenes moments as I took in all this incredible first week had to offer:

The Set

Rule #1: Windex is your friend. We got right to work preparing for the shoot by making sure the studio was spotless and the equipment was ready to go. Shoutout to Abby for teaching me how to test the camera and set up the lights.

The Wardrobe

Hangers galore! I was stunned to see how many clothing options arrived at the studio for the shoot.

The Crew

A shoot is nothing without a dedicated crew. Here we have our insanely talented hair stylist Paula, wardrobe specialist Coleen, and makeup artist Jennifer. It was so great working with this detail-oriented team!

The Models

Not only were they beautiful, but the models are some of the most genuinely friendly people I’ve met. Here are some shots of Lauren, Anna, and Anais as the shoot got underway.

The Favorite

Last but not least, here’s one of my favorite behind-the-scenes shots from the day. Check out the beautiful flares that the lighting cast on our bold model Anais.

As you can see, I’d say it was a pretty amazing first week all in all. Thank you so much to Michael for the incredible internship opportunity. I can’t wait to see what else upcoming weeks have in store!

ICE CREAM POLAR PIZZA SHOOT

Who wouldn’t want to grab a Baskin-Robbins Polar Pizza slice after watching this!? Enjoy!

Check out the final video above!

Some of the behind the scene shots of our Baskin Robbins Polar Pizza. Took Michael and the team 3 days to shoot the sequences needed to make the cut. Each flavor was shot separately and edited in post to give that final polished look. Momentum, music, rhythm, appetite appeal, and the flow of the video are qualities that we focused on highlighting. In total there are 49 actual shots to create this 30 second video, however we took 2-3 takes per shot.

Something that looks simple in a video may be quite complex to shoot. Applying math is an indispensable way of accomplishing such a task. Image above shows how we divided up each slice and marked them numerically for an action sequence. In the final video clip, you can see the results of this kind of math in action.

img_5230

At the end of the day, it is about getting the shot and getting it right. Executing creative ideas take a lot of “thinking outside the box”. This is just a casual example of the things we use to get the shots we want.

WYNN CASINO: BIG OPPORTUNITIES IN SMALL PACKAGES

Recently the team took on an unusual challenge of photographing a model of the new Wynn Resorts to be built in Everett, MA. The crew packed up their bags and went on location to Wynn offices to shoot the 6’ x 8’, 1500lb model of the soon-to-be casino. Our intern, Sarah, wrote a blog of the experience:


Jayna, Odi, Michael and I packed up the van early Wednesday morning and hopped on the road to head to Wynn offices in Medford. When we arrived and unpacked we were in awe at both of the models that were created for the planning of the casino. Our client informed us that the model was 1500 pounds and was delivered from Las Vegas and reassembled here in their Boston office.

We were able to move the model to anywhere in the room(luckily it was on wheels!), which really helped us get our backdrop and lighting just right. It was so nerve-racking to move the giant replica! After shooting a from multiple possible angles we packed up the car and headed home after a fun, but exhausting, shoot. Check out some images below!

We were definitely excited to have an on location shoot at the Wynn Boston Harbor offices!IMG_1697
