The collection trailer for Mario Krankl’s show in the Goldwell Color Zoom Competition in Berlin is characterised by a lively mix of style elements and contrasts.
Gigantic hair volume is interrupted by punky elements or a few bright colour accents. In our video, we were looking for a reaction which we could pick up and which would support this style clash.
This resulted in our taking unusual ways in the technical implementation and, alongside our broncolor HMI light, we used the familiar Scoro generators with Pulso Twin Heads (which we knew from photography) as the film lighting. Flash series with a sensational 50 flashes per second even offered us the option of moderate slow-motion clips with a flash.
The BTS video shows a few impressions of the production and the RED Epic Dragon camera, with its X synchronisation, which was used. Thus, we did not even need additional equipment, but only used the Scoro’s built-in programming options and an RFS transmitter.
In a mix of continuous light, clean synchronisation, strobe and rolling-shutter effects in the various takes, entirely different and surprising image effects delighted the challenging specialist audience in Berlin. Incidentally, with a ‘6K’ resolution, one can create impressive prints.
Photography continues to constantly transform and we are happy to have a partner in broncolor with whom we can meet the ever evolving demands.
Denise & Ulf Krentz have been living and working together for 16 years. Passionate about beauty photography, in the 2011 broncolor calendar they direct cosmetic beauties within artistic compositions of colour. Denise Krentz: “Beautiful women in extraordinary make-up and hair styles are a special and rare sight. I enjoy working with exceptional make-up artists and hair stylists and would like to thank them for the good cooperation at this point. We did not intend to have any link to reality in the motifs of the calendar. We experience reality every day. I like the timeless glance of the models in an artificially created environment. Our photographs picture human soul and the interplay of distance and approachability.”In her photographs, aesthetics is the most important subject. She searches for unfamiliar viewpoints – reduced or bright and colourful, either by the means of light or in combination with the unusual work of the stylists. She creates unique pictures possessing a high grade of memorability.
