club photography (v)_121309

we were recently hired on a weekly basis to photograph those attending a club night in new york’s lower east side. the party goes by the name of just the tip and is in a club called happy ending (a disused erotic massage parlour). taking appropriate cues from wong kar wai’s film?in the mood for love and the exploitation flicks projected onto the club’s walls each night, we wanted to give the photos a warm, grainy, ambient, cinematic feel.?thus we chose to use our new canon 5D mark II, a canon 580 EX flash (purely for it’s laser focussing facility)?and a 50mm lens to take flashless RAW photographs and rely on the club’s own light sources to set the scene. we then post-process the shots back here in the studio both in terms of exposure, temperature and imitation chemical cross-processing. the results are pretty far from your last night’s party vibe of club photography and justly so given the more refined and elegant nature of this particular club night.
