Christian Schallert, Austrian Artist

Christian Schallert, barcelonaThis guy is an Austrian photographer, who has made a success out of postcards and various printed products, a good example of how a business brain probably serves you better than just having good ideas.

I wanted to play around with gels for this and after figuring a place to put him that showed off some of his work (including the T shirt he is wearing). I figured the burned out window next to him would serve for the dead space they need for the interview text, I then set the camera for artificial light and gelled the flash with some CTO (I have long strips of 1/4 strength which you can fold several times for the desired effect). I wanted the colour contrast on the face to be quite strong, as always these interviews are an excuse to experiment as the money is hardly worth mentioning!
