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!

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.

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!

IT’S NEVER TOO COLD FOR ICE CREAM

As a Boston Food Photographer studio, it’s no surprise we like ICE CREAM around here! Just take a look through our website indresano.com and you will notice we are obsessed with ice cream! Some people love cat videos, we LOVE ice cream. We photograph ice cream, we video ice cream. If the sun were a ginormous scoop of tiramisu gelato we would be a sunflower basking in its delicious ice creamy rays. And we would take the ice cream on exciting adventures too. Like this recent project where we made cool melty looks from a few of our favorite flavors.

Nothing looks more tasty than melting vanilla ice cream.

We are such enthusiasts, we even create our own homemade vanilla bean ice cream!

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.

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.

Very cool slow motion behind the scenes video of Jayna dropping the candy pieces on top of the Polar Pizza (below)! See the clip in the final Polar Pizza video at 0.07 seconds in (above).

CLOUDY WITH A CHANCE OF ICE CREAM

It might be getting cold outside, but that won’t stop us from having fun with our favorite dessert: ice cream! Our team spent some time recently creating some very appetizing treats and showing them off in a lively way. Check it out below!

Scooping up ice cream for the whole studio!

With all these delicious treats tempting us, we had just as much fun eating it as we did shooting it!

BRUNCH IN THE STUDIO – BELGIAN WAFFLES WITH BANANA’S FOSTER

Since it has been so cold lately, we thought it would be a nice time to shoot some warm Belgian waffles, fresh from the iron. The wonderful smell filled the studio and if it was not for stylist Monica Mariano from Ennis Inc. fighting us back, the waffles would have been eaten instead of making fantastic images!

The ingredients are simple, but very tasty when whisked with skill and carefully cooked.

The Bananas Foster was a very lovely touch to our waffles. Stop by the studio anytime and we will cook up a batch!

Monica slowly builds the tower of waffles.

Sometimes stylists need a little help to keep tall stacks of waffles from falling over… shhh we won’t tell!
