AMAZONITE Photo press kit for K.I.D's latest album

K.I.D (Krak In Dub) came to ask me to work for his press photo regarding the release of his latest album : Amazonite

I took inspiration from his cover art work and also from his desire to not appear too much in the press material.

Color and shape of the main object was my priority

I first used my digital camera in my studio, adding green gel to my strobe. I asked him to pose as if he was playing in a club. In post I added a cubic fx to recall the cover art work. Placing the fx it as if it were produce by his audio equipment and as if it was a result of his music

but keep combining analog film and the digital post to add the Amazonite Fx

I aslo used an old 6x6 Mamyia C330 with kodak portra film

As Press requires also some B&W pictures I aslo did few tintypes

Tintype is an old photo technique from 1850 using a bellow camera

I love the default in this old technique, and the silverish aspect. Finally it look more white on black than B&W
