News: Ralph Mecke for Best Fashion

Fashion photographer Ralph Mecke has shot this beautiful editorial for Best Fashion magazine.
Ralph’s images are shot on large format negative. You can just feel the film quality of these images; the grain, the tones, the depth of field is just incredible! We scanned the images in our studio in Stuttgart and fine tuned the colours.

Well done Ralph, keep up the good work!

Making of : Tears


One day we were called by Damien De Blinkk called us with a rather unusual request: can you make a girl cry? While being a questionable task in the real world, in the virtual world this turned out to be a fun little project! See the making-of below, using ZBrush to model the tear, Maya/Vray for lighting & rendering and bringing it all together and adding those bloodshot eyes in Photoshop finished it off.

Check out this crazy beautiful editorial, shot by Ralph Mecke on large format colour negative. It is inspired by the world of Francis Bacon and takes you to some dark and beautiful places inside the human soul. Our team in Stuttgart scanned the images, making sure to keep the analogue feeling of the negative whilst showing a peculiar pallette of colours for this excentric world of unusual beings.

The Making of: Moody & Farrell lookbook

MoodyFarrell4… and here we have another great collaboration between milliner Eloise Moody, photographer Madame Peripetie, make-up artist Marina Keri and us at Recom Farmhouse!

We have known Eloise for over 5 years when she first moved to Mentmore Studios in Hackney, London, one of our beloved headquarters.

For this lookbook the main concept running through the images is the repeated pattern between the hand woven straw and the hand drawn tattoos on the model. Continue reading
