Don’t missunderstand me. I really enjoy to hang out in clubs and bars but i don’t enjoy to drink myself to a delirium and i don’t really enjoy the dancing people. Some might say, it’s a boring way to party but it’s not. The fun reaches another level this way and i really enjoy this level more than the situation where i can’t remember anything the next day. It doesn’t mean i’m not one of the party-people, it simply means i’m partying an other way.

Why am i talking about this? My model here is very similar to me in some of these points. And anyway i choose to shot photos with flying confetti. Do i want to create a contrast? Not really. Even if you’re “off the dance floor”, your a part of the party, sometimes a little bit outside, sometimes other people are looking at you but that’s a nice kind of melancholy.

Originally, i planned to shoot with Isy later this year, when it’s warmer outside. When we talked about a shooting, she said “i’m open to all ideas”. Last friday i’ve been in photo-mood and i remembered this idea with the confetti, that stuck in my head since many months. So i thought “let’s see, if she’s serious” and she really was immediately willing to get a lot of confetti thrown on her on a friday evening (or better a friday night). The outcome is a series with just the right ammount of melancholy, created by the life off the dance floor. Thank you Isy, i’m looking forward for more photos!

    I loooove looove this photoshoot!!!! The light colours and the lights are really amazing!! May I ask you, did you use an external flash to create the flares??? Is really amazing!!!
    And I totally agree with you.. some people may say that getting drunk till you don’t remember your name is the best way to party… what a pity, they are losing the best part of the night 😀

    1. Hey Andrea,
      thanks for your comment. Yes, sometimes i used a flash as backlight but sometimes i simply made some photoshop-tricks to get that kind of light&flare 😉

    Hey Christopher die Bilder dieser Serie sind durch und durch gelungen. Das sechste Foto sticht aus meiner Sicht aber deutlich heraus. Die Klarheit und Schärfe in diesem Bild sind einfach beeindruckend und ergeben den besten Gesamtausdruck. Das Partygefühl kommt einfach sehr schön rüber und der Ausdruck von Isy und passt einfach wunderbar. Was allerdings die anderen Fotos nicht in ein schlechteres Licht rücken soll.

    Achja und was Partys angeht ergeht es mir nicht wesentlich anders als dir. In der heutigen Zeit herscht meiner Ansicht nach ein Zwang immer gut drauf sein zu müssen. Wie mich das nervt!
