This shot was made during Photokina 2008. Just next to the IVRPA booth the "Chip Foto Magazine" held workshops every day. The "Playmate Photo Session" was well visited :-)
So I took the chance to make some panos of this "event".
After playing a little I found this version much more interesting than using black and white. It keeps the photographer (who did a remarkable time lapse during the shots) and the model in colour - therefore in focus.
The audience is desaturated and "foiled". It gives a nice artificial feeling and the two (model and photographer) seem to act inside a painting though.
Naturally everbody was watching me with my 2,5m pole in my belly-pouch.
