This has been a really busy period, and it will continue to be for at least two months. I am bombarded of inputs, styles, variations and ideas. So I was looking for something clear, extremely sharp, technically perfect to have a good and neutral start point. Don’t forget we are in summer, so let’s have a look to something fresh. We all need to refresh our eyes.

With this in mind, I searched a bit on Behance and found what I was looking for. Viktoria Stutz.
She’s a photographer based in Hamburg, Germany. She comes from the old school, the analog parents of digital photography. Nights spent in the darkroom, looking for the right exposure time, aperture and contrast second by second, click by click, breathing the nostalgic and fascinating smell of acids, and before you could realize it, it was the sunrise. With all your wet pictures and tests clipped on a wire, or sticked on the wall.

Here are the photographs and technical skills of a photographer who really knows what the light is doing when she is shooting.  With these skills, it seems she can handle photons and made them to do whatever she wants to create.

Now, back to our days, add some powerful well balanced colours, and you’ll have one of the high level photographer everyone secretly desired to be once in a lifetime. It really seems she knows exactly how to reach her goals, in every picture.

We’ve seen another great light expert, Vadim Stein, but he was another kind of guru. While he was using lights in a dramatic way, Ms Stutz cuts lights with a knife and german precision. Absolutely amazing.

Even if these pictures are maybe for some kind of commercial, and I’m quite sure Photoshop has put its finger on some details, skin, eyes and every lovely human imprecision is still there, so you can appreciate the nature of the subject, a beautiful girl.
