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.

The rush of having a heavy schedule in the early weeks of my internship was exactly what I needed. It gave me no choice but to learn more about equipment needed for on location lifestyle shoots shoots.

This was not the first car we’ve shot in the studio so we knew exactly how to set up our Hasselblad camera to get the best angles.

RANGE ROVER VIDEO PRODUCTION AND PHOTOGRAPHY: IT’S ALL IN THE DETAILS

No matter how big the product, the Indresano team always has an eye for the details. So naturally, when we had a Range Rover in the studio, we couldn’t help but admire all of its features, both large and small. After looking at these images, you’ll have a new appreciation for car design!

BEST PHOTOGRAPHY AND VIDEOGRAPHY OF 2017

With the start of 2018, we looked back on a year full of challenging photography and videography projects, exciting clients, and big changes at the studio! Check out some of the highlights of the last year below:

The year started off with a photoshoot – Baby Michael’s first time on set! During our annual Indresano’s Angels shoot, we were fortunate to have our own ‘Charlie’ for the day, although we think ours was a little cuter. 🙂

Then it was time for some deja vu: we were back in San Diego to conduct a video interview of new international executives for a corporate video series. Our crew did a quick turnaround and was only on the ground for 36 hours, but that didn’t stop them from seeing the sights and getting in a little local fun!

With the crew back to the cold New England, we had a client who was keeping it hot in the studio with a model photoshoot! Hair product company Toni & Guy came to the studio for a glamorous beauty shoot. In addition to the final shots of fun new hairstyles, we also captured some tutorial photographs of how to get the same look.

It wouldn’t be a year in review if we didn’t mention the amazing Superbowl LI win for the Patriots! We were excited to photograph two New England Patriot all-stars in the studio this year- running back James White and tight end Rob Gronkowski. Check out some images and behind the scenes videos below!

This year also included some fun videography projects, including one for a new DuoClean vacuum. We worked to capture the high end, sleek side of a product that people often overlook as simply utilitarian.

Some of our video productions also took the team on location, such as the 2-day video shoot we did in a gym to showcase Nike. We worked with a highly athletic model to help capture a gritty and intense final video.

We also had a new exciting addition to our photography team this year- our Hasselblad H6D 100C! It gives us files twice the size of other leading cameras, a much faster shutter speed, and 4K video capabilities.

The team was very honored to win a Black and White Spider Award for our photography and a Hatch Award from the Ad Club for our videography. Below is the Hasselblad image that won for the Black and White Spider Award.

And below is the video we made with MIT Tangible Media which won a Hatch Award in 2017.

We also had several opportunities to drive some high-end cars into the studio. First up was a Range Rover in order to capture a sleek and detail oriented video showcasing the car. Next up was a Volvo XC90 Excellence Edition. We used the luxury car to showcase a new software design which creates a proactive suspension that eliminates motion in the car. The images from that shoot are coming in a blog soon, so keep an eye out!

A big project we undertook this year was converting our storage room into a highly organized prop closet. We went through all the props we collected over the years and logged them in a digital portfolio. We also created a numbering system so that we will be able to find any prop needed instantly. The result is a food photographer’s dream come true!

This past year, the team had a chance to capture some shoe photography as well as make some videos. For instance, this fall we collaborated with Timberland on an exciting project, where we used photo smoke and our Sony F5 to create a social media campaign for their Limited Release boot.

We also worked with New Balance to create a dynamic photography campaign in magazines and other printed publications.

It wouldn’t be an annual review of all our work if we didn’t mention some of our food photography! We teamed up with Improper Bostonian and the talented food stylist John Carafoli to capture the cover photo for their pasta issue. Check out the final result below!

With a year as full as this one, we can’t wait for all the new projects and changes that 2018 will bring. Make sure to stay tuned to our blog to get sneak peeks and behind the scenes access in the new year!

FOOD PHOTOGRAPHY FOR IMPROPER BOSTONIAN COVER SHOOT

We had a blast capturing some food photography for Improper Bostonian’s Fall Dining issue cover! We’re always happy to have an excuse to have some fresh pasta in the studio 🙂

The combination of fresh ravioli and a good quality camera is an Italian photographer’s dream come true!

It was such a treat to have our longtime friend John Carafoli as the food stylist for this shoot. He is so talented!

Here is a quick glimpse of the beginning stages of making fresh pasta.

John worked his magic to create delicious pasta! It takes a lot of time, patience, diligence, and intense attention to detail, but the end results are so worth it.

We went to great heights to capture the detailed texture of the delicious pasta. An overhead shot allowed us to showcase John’s final creation in the best way!

We used red, green, and natural pasta to create an edible Italian flag. Who says you shouldn’t play with your food? 😉

Check out the final cover below and grab your copy of Improper Bostonian’s Fall Dining issue as soon as you can!

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.
A drop just before it hits the laser.

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.
