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 ­čśÇ

      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 ­čśë

    Hey Christopher die Bilder dieser Serie sind durch und durch gelungen. Das sechste Foto sticht aus meiner Sicht aber deutlich heraus. Die Klarheit und Sch├Ąrfe in diesem Bild sind einfach beeindruckend und ergeben den besten Gesamtausdruck. Das Partygef├╝hl kommt einfach sehr sch├Ân r├╝ber und der Ausdruck von Isy und passt einfach wunderbar. Was allerdings die anderen Fotos nicht in ein schlechteres Licht r├╝cken 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 m├╝ssen. Wie mich das nervt!

    Very nice! I was browsing 500px and came across ur work. I just did a shoot with glitter and it was excellent and similar to yours of course. But I really like your take on confetti :) it is a fun and messy job huh ?! But great images once completed !
    Good day from one photographer to another.
