After a nice little break during the winter off-season, our bones started itching for something to shoot. We didn’t have much of a plan in the beginning, but we just knew we wanted to go out and create something cool. So, we set ourselves up with a challenge: find a cool couple, find a location that’s nearby and go shoot.
This project was put together super spontaneously, and we were fortunate enough to find these two. Who was not a real couple, They were both two individuals keen to join us on this shoot, and man, were we stoked with how it came out. Normally, we avoid shooting ‘fake couples’ because we feel that it’s just not authentic. But since this shoot was something for us, creatively, and to help our development of a new project for our presets, we let it slide.
We found the most obvious, yet seemingly uninteresting spot to shoot – a challenge, yes. Right at the University of Erlangen (Germany). Together with the couple, a makeup artist, and a gorgeous sparkly dress we got from a bridal store, we went off to the shoot.
We battled ice-cold winds, and crowds of people all staring and taking their own photos of our little thingy-ma-jig. But you know what? We just focused on what we were doing and we couldn’t be more stoked with the outcome.
