Now we are done with evaluation of the first assignment. The costumer were pleased with the result and saw potential in the picture “Gastromat no. 2″, the one I liked the least. All in all, happy ending and a new assignment. This one we are going to shoot a portrait of a person in a reflection with a melancholy mood. I am thinking about shooting a person in the rear view mirror or on the bus. Need to clear my head, get some props and the models.

It was all a lie, I didn’t screw things up yesterday, just testing if I could synchronize the Nikon D700 TTL pop-up flash with the Elinchrom studio-flash with TTL on the camera. I fired off a few shots but it didn’t work. If anyone have the slightest idea of how to fire a Elinchrom BX Ri 600 with built-in pop-up flash I’d be happy to know.
So here are my pack shots for the Gastromat-assignment, the “costumer” wanted a clean and modern feel in the picture. One of the challenges I meet was choosing the right pack. Gastromat has recently changed their packing from a flat, green label to a shiny one. I don’t believe that the course leader had that in mind when making this assignment. I went around town looking for both packs and found both the shiny, reflective and the flat, green at Rema 1000 in Olav Tryggvassons Gate in Trondheim.
The other challenge was finding the right bowl and the right soup to go with the box. I found two containers at Interia, not with the right color but a somewhat cool shape. I went for a thick, creamy cauliflower with a leaf of lemon balm leaf (melissa officinalis) to decorate it all.
Half way through I gave up doing my assignment. The soup was cold and spilling all over the studio, popped up the built-in flash and shot this picture. I am not satisfied with it but it was the best I could do at the moment. Tomorrow, Roar Øhlander, the headmaster is going to evaluate the picture, if I am very lucky I don’t need to re-shoot this assignment along with the new due for Thursday.
I’ve lost my mojo.
