    Making of 2011 Pirelli Calendar (NSFW)

    Interesting video of Karl Lagerfeld shooting the 2011 Pirelli calendar.

    Just thinking the same thing -- I guess I need to get a pair of studded gloves and cut the trigger finger finger out of them before the next model shoot

    And you need to start wearing sunglasses indoors. And look like you never wore a tie, ever, before in your life!

    Your hair is neither long enough nor grey enough! And--do you have someone standing next to you to hand the camera to immediately?

    I'll stick to shooting landscape that way when I use gloves it's because it's cold outside and sunglasses because I'm outside in the sun......

    Well, I could grow my hair longer, but it would be tough to be grayer than I already am LOLOL! I am sure I could find a few willing pro-bono assistants to stay at my side for camera carries given those subjects.

    He's an odd duck to be sure, but that's to us. Among that crowd, he fits in just perfectly, and he's sure got his own special look!

    Regardless, I've seen some very imaginative and beautiful work from Lagerfeld.

    Cheers,

    Cheers,
    I come from the art/high end craft world so I should be one of the first to not denigrate anyone for their own 'odd duck' look and actions but it doesn't seem to fit many on these forums LOL.

    Well, thanks for the link. I enjoyed that (I didn't think the film was that great, but I did enjoy the content).

    As for Mr. Lagerfeld, I don't see the problem - he seemed to me to be rather pleasant and engaged, and if he was getting more deference than anyone's ever given me . . . perhaps he deserves it!
    . . . .

    if you're head designer and creative director for Chanel, you're hardly going to wear a pair of levis and a t-shirt. (I notice that his studded gloves matched his hassleblad )

    I can imagine that in some kind of decent resolution those pictures will look wonderful.

    "affected", "ridiculous", "boring", or even "odd duck" - I didn't think so.

    I think I have to admit to being a fan.

    Just this guy you know

    I want a Hasselblad that matches my gloves as well!

    Mr. Lagerfeld understands his business very well. Equal doses of skill and personal style seems to work very well for him, and have brought him to a position that few, if any, can even dream of. A living legend he is, and there are not many of those.

    And the photos? I think they look rather good, surprisingly, since it isn't really my style.

    think of how "affected" those pictures could be considering the theme, the client and past calendars and these pictures are positively sedate.

    or that annie liebovitz laVazza calendar with the winged monkeys in the roman coliseum?

    Having worked along side a few fashion photographers of his calibre my opinion is that his set is calm, focused and professional, he is charming, not what I expected, and the work is simple, strong and focused on beauty and simplicity.

    complete changes my opinion of the man actually, who I thought was a total flake.

    Well, I've never worked alongside any fashion photographers (talked to a few). I quite agree with you judgement though. Hopefully I'll see the calendar one day!

    Sadly the link has been deleted because of their "policy on nudity and sexuality"
