A loud bang caught us off guard! The U.S.S. Constitution gave everyone a surprise visit with it’s roaring canons. What a special treat on a beautiful day, and a great way to top off day two.

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.

GOVERNOR CHARLIE BAKER LIEUTENANT GOVERNOR KARYN POLITO VISIT THE INDRESANO STUDIO

Things were quite exciting at the studio last week when the Governor Charlie Baker stopped by! Lieutenant Governor Karyn Polito also made an appearance so Michael could photograph the two for the Spring cover of Scene Magazine. The Indresano team was honored to have both high-profile public officials take some time out of their busy schedules to visit the studio. State Troopers came to the studio the day prior to conduct a site survey and they also assessed the area twice during the day of the shoot to ensure everything was safe and ready for the Governor’s arrival! Check out some pictures from the shoot below as well as an exclusive behind the scenes video!

BOSTON BRUINS

When the email arrived in our mailbox with the words “Bruins” and “Photo Shoot,” We immediately said, “YES, we would love to shoot the Champions!”

After countless emails, checklists, and a test shoot at the Studio, we drove our cargo van into TD Garden. Carrying and setting-up the entire studio, two days of 3 am alarm clocks, lots of Dunkin’ coffee, breaking down and packing up, and finally … processing 4,983 files – we wanted to share these pictures with you.

It was a challenging, but extremely fun and exciting shoot. It could not have been possible without the entire team at Indresano Photography and the wonderful people who work for the Boston Bruins.

Keep an eye out for our exclusive behind the scenes video and photos on this blog and our Facebook page.

END OF SUMMER BEGINS WITH A NEW BLOG!

We could not think of a better way to wrap up the summer with a new blog and some photos to remind us of the great weather we had.

Michael had some fun shooting underwater on the weekends between working with clients during the week. Have a look and enjoy!

ON THE ROAD AGAIN

Recently, one of our clients asked us to hit the road and photograph a family in southern Massachusetts. BJ’s Wholesale Club prints a quarterly journal for it members and features a member profile in each issue.
It is always a fun challenge to go into someone’s home and photograph people who are not models or used to being in front of a camera. We rearranged their living room to create a studio for the main picture and then set up a shot on the couch to capture the whole family.  Cindy was fantastic to work with, and her little girls, Ryleigh, Peyton, and Emerson were very fun.
After we put everything back in it’s place we bid them farewell and headed back to Boston.
If you are a BJ’s member you could be the next member profile – go to their Facebook page to learn more!

FROM THE STREET INTO THE STUDIO

One of the most rewarding parts of working on various advertising shoots is seeing the final results a few months later. This was a shoot that required careful planning from the start. The original idea was to photograph people in various locations around Boston.  Logistically it would have been possible, but to  and not break the budget and give us total control, shooting in the studio made the most sense.

Over the course of three days, in the comfort of our studio, we transported our models into boardrooms, classrooms, and even a field of windmills. We shot the models in different poses with the idea that they would be holding a “window” into another part of the company.
The final results came out great! Take a journey and see for yourself!

THE SCIENCE OF A PHOTO SHOOT

Finally! There was a reason why high school chemistry existed, other than to lower student GPAs and cause schools across the country to be evacuated,  as Michael Indresano Studio went back to CHEM 101 and morphed into a research lab for a few days.

Fortunately this was not shot using film and processing it using chemicals, but we could have pulled it off by just going into the kitchen and creating our own darkroom.

After being sworn to Manhattan Project levels of secrecy, Michael and the rest of the team donned white lab coats and methodically created some wonderful images that the client was very happy with – and yes, the studio is still in one piece.

Hair and makeup artist, Heidi Wells, is careful not let any stray powder mix with the solution in the beakers.
There is no such thing as a “strange light” in a photo studio.
The entire creative team looks over the images.
