San City High Records Dj Photoshoot by Jan Masny

Who says DJs are only for music industry? They can be fun in other areas as well just like our featured artist for today who managed to take great photographs of DJs having fun in a photoshoot. Read on and be inspired with this fun concept. Enjoy!

The photos were commissioned by DJs label San City High. Actually we got it very fast, I’ve planned it quite precisely before, DJs were very committed to hard work for the photos. Whole story was about throwing powder paint and freezing it by fash light. I’ve shot on canon 5d markII, with 2 standard canon flashguns, the shoot was in Hackney where i found some gritty locations under train bridges. Effect of freeze of powder paint was achieved by fast flash, I’ve mange to avoid daylight by hiding from it and using high apertures and fast shutter speed.
