I shot this portrait of the Art director on set with the client in front. On set, BTS & head shots are just as important as the actual shots when doing a photo shoot – BABAK Photo Atlanta 2017
A short film of our 2 day work shop for master hairstylist in Atlanta.
Day 1 was in class theory / types of hair shoot / how to get great images from the shoot / ideas / model selection & on set tips.
Day2 was in studio photo shoot with Daniel Holzberger helping with the hair on set and guiding the participants while BABAK photographing the models and going over the images and how to improve your hair for photo shoot.
We had 10 advanced stylist participate and they paired up working on a model for the shoot. We shot a total of 5 models / some with different hair looks .
It was a learning experience. The experts showed us all kinds of neat tips that you could do relatively easily for some wild hair, and really good looking hairstyles as well. Special thanks to the folks over at hair to ware as well for showing us some pretty interesting wig tips that can cut down on your prep time if you set it up ahead of time. We’re probably going to be using wigs in some of our future projects since there are some things you can do with them that can be a lot more complicated to realize with real hair and the model having to deal with the extensive hair and makeup time. Getting your hair pulled on for over an hour while you can’t move much will affect how you do your job as a model after all. We had a lot of fun and learned a lot. It all culminated in an awesome photoshoot, and we hope you like the end result as well as the behind the scenes video!
The final images from the shoot are posted at the end of the video.

Street Photography in the rain adds an interesting element to the photos. The wet pavement gives you high lights that make other wise ordinary photo stand out. It also gives you a bit of a cover from the subjects noticing you. People usually look down and don’t look a round when walking in the rain. Photo BABAk NYC

I wanted a different plane shot at the end of one of my favorit runways so i took my frend Anna to runway 23 to hang and shoot. The light and the sky was just right at the time the Boeing 777 went over our head . The Photo is made with all available light and a few minutes later we lost the light. Waiting for the right plane is always a challenge – you want the ” heavies” [ meaning larger planes ] in the shot for more of a dramatic effect. I used a 70-200 2.8 on this one with 1/125 sec at f 8.0 – needed some depth of field to keep the 777 in focus – BABAK Photo Model Anna www.babak.ca
