Meet our photographer of the month, Jessica Czarnecki!
Concrete Studios LA welcomes Spencer Lee and her Team!
Concrete Studios LA has had the pleasure of hosting Rogue Magazine as well as the talented Olivia Munn who graced the cover of their SPRING/ SUMMER ISSUE N˚9! Olivia Munn is an Actor/ Model who spent much of her earlier years in Japan. She later moved to Los Angeles, which would be the start of her acting career. In her genesis, Munn joined G4 TV host of Attack of the Show! and Comedy Central's The Daily Show, almost in congruence. Munn is mostly known for her film roles in Date Night, The Babymakers, Deliver Us From Evil, Iron Man 2 and X-Men: The Apocalypse.
These beautiful portraits were shot Studio C, which is known for its beautiful ambient light, Cyc wall many other options! Here, Olivia Munn was lit with a variety of light sources, including (the most obvious), neon light sticks, and Kinos to create soft and lofty vibes. The pastel colors chosen added to the feel as well. Concrete Studios LA is here to provide spaces to artist of all kinds that create works that inspire vision and promote change.

Instead of having to add color to your photo in post you can achieve this in camera by using gels. In this video you will learn 4 ways to mount gels to reflect back at your subject to achieve vibrant color; specifically in your shadows. You can attach the gel to a strobe alongside or across from your key light. You will want to make sure the strobe that has the gel attached to it is dialed a few stops down, so not to obstruct the subject's face. You can also place a gel inside of a soft box, which you can place on either side of your subject as a fill light. As another fill source, you can use white foam core with a colored gel attached to it, which typically affects the hardness of the shadow on your subjects face, but in color. You can also attach your gel to a mirror which gives the shadows more of a hardness to them against the subject's face. On your next photo shoot at Concrete Studios LA, be sure to bring your own gels and try some of these looks out or ask us to borrow some of ours. See you soon and Happy Shooting!

Stunning motion captured by the talented photographer Sasha Dylan Bell in our Studio B! Here, she combines a subtlety of movement with soft lighting peaking through the window. She is patient, which allows her to capture the perfect moment of expression oozing from her subjects.

“to take a photograph is to participate in another person's mortality, vulnerability, mutability. precisely by slicing out this moment and freezing it, all photographs testify to time's relentless melt.” -Susan Sontag
