It has been a really good run since we reopened the website of The Lost Project and tied it to JamesC Mua. For several months we have been really debating how we would move forward and when we finally took the leap it has been a smart and long overdue move.
Although we have been holding back from doing new shoots (the site is due for some updates) we do have a few little things up our collective sleeve that will be worked into The Lost Stories and our gallery.
We have started working on designs for what will be a fantastic pop-up show, our makeup designs will be submitted for approval first and while this is being sorted we will be writing about a mens makeup line and doing some simple, clean Commercial shots at a location we have been wanting to work for a while. A beautiful promenade that has all the dystopic elements that we have been looking for: crumbling concrete and rusted barriers with concrete bollards, a beautiful place to shoot.
In addition we want to create some new beach shots, starting with male models and adding in some beauty work and a series of macro shots.
Our primary focus will be on street photography and we will be adding a camera to our working arsenal that is designed to suit this. We are really heavily leaning toward the Sony a6400 for its hybrid elements that will allow us to shoot behind the scenes video and create some clips of our creative director at work or even just as experimental videos to showcase The Lost Project, which will allow us to add in some media/character shots.
The potential is there and we fully intend to make use of it. We plan to tie in something experimental pieces using string lights and possibly a prism. Experimenting with the creative element of our ideas adding to that sense of Lost Imaging.
