Albert Faskhutdinov's picture

Barbershop in Russia

At the end of the outgoing year, I made a photoshoot for the Irkutsk barbershop Borodach. The guys turned out to be very friendly, and most importantly patient — the shooting lasted six hours (although taking into account the equipment settings and breaks, we actually shot less, of course). This is my favorite image from this photoshoot.

When I was shooting, I knew that I would have to deal with distortion from a wide-angle lens on a model in post-production.

My overall goal was to make the figure of the model to look normal, and the background behind him to have this fish-eye look.

Final image consists of 4 or 5 photos (background elements, mirror reflection, etc.).
