I Got The Looks + Details

Dat cover.It’s been almost a year (A YEAR!) in the making, but today, finally, we are underway with the whole process of printing, color proofing and the likes. It will be ready for the end of May, but I’m yet to know the exact day/time/place for sure.

Also, this is the time when all the thing you thought were correct, looks like you can do it better, as in: moving a 0,5 pt line a few millimeters to the left or try to hide that 0,04% of the picture that maybe looks funny, sometimes. I used to dedicate lots of time to those kind of things, but I decided to let go. It’s not that I’m obsessed with the details, but as you go on, the gap between perfection and your current product begins to shorten, but it will NEVER be perfect. Because few things are. Instead, I focus on how and when are going to distribute it, on making a good campaign out of it and basically, DON’T FUCK THIS UP.

I really hope you enjoy what’s been going on as much as I have. Well, I’ve had my rage days, my homicidal days and my I-give-up-damn-you-all days. But it’s worth it.

Cheers!

Fake Weddings + Replichroming.

falsi pir-4This weekend, I was invited by the Tourism Board of Supetar (island of Brač) to photograph a fake wedding. It was, actually, a fake traditional wedding, making it even more interesting to watch, specially because I was never told much about the whole event, and conversations went like “So… who’s getting married?”, “Oh Mirko, nobody! Now, let’s go get the bride!!”. I was confused.

In the end, this huge celebration was organized by local people in order to celebrate something, that I was never quite certain about, but I’ll just assume that life is a good thing to celebrate. Summer is coming, the sea is getting warmer and having friends, family and health are a good thing to brag about. So they (we) did.

Enjoy.

 

Since you made it so far, I’ll tell you that some pics were made using the base of Replichrome presets, lovely stuff!
