Shooting Valentino handbags – Jodi Jones

Jodi Jones is an award-winning photographer, producer and creative director. She often has to work with tough deadlines and demanding clients that expect full collections to be shot in one day. Often she handles both still and video shoots together. Getting the perfect light for every shot throughout the day is crucial. “It’s a real challenge to work under pressure on very limited set up time and to shoot such a variety of looks in one day” states Jodi. “I have clients where I shoot 120 different clothing looks in just one day! This requires not only super speed, but a great team, and having a simple solution to create stunning lighting is paramount!” As with her latest Valentino shoot, this is further complicated when taking pictures outdoors from morning to night and dealing with the overpowering sun while keeping a consistent feel throughout.

IGNJAT MILETIC

Ignjat Miletic started cinematography at age 15 shooting skateboarding videos.  Using his uncle’s old camera, with a battery that would die after 3 minutes created a challenge that taught him to plan his shots and think ahead. He quickly progressed into shooting music videos for Dutch music artists that eventually got played on TV. From the beginning of his career Ignjat said “No matter what camera you use, no matter the budget, I taught myself the importance of good lighting. I came to realize that light is the magic touch”.  Now Ignjat looks to create the most interesting frames using the camera and lights of his choosing.

Shape Of Water

Set during the height of the Cold War in 1962, the Shape of Water applauds and at the same time subverts the classic film genres of science fiction and romance. At times frightening and at other times absolutely heartbreaking, the story updates The Creature from the Black Lagoon for modern audiences through a humorous, tense, and at many times absolutely adorable exploration of the heart, fear, and trust. In a love letter penned by director Guillermo Del Toro and cowriter Vanessa Taylor to the hallmark days of classic American science fiction, Shape of Water follows the silent Sally as she discovers a forbidden love with a creature unlike any she’s ever known.
