Marko Saari’s Futuro
Marko Saari is a freelance photographer from southern Finland whose imaginative and narrative-driven fashion work caught our eye. Read below for his account of his recent retro-futuristic shoot at a historic and unusual home. We present Marko Saari’s Futuro.
For this shoot, I was inspired by the Futuro plastic house, designed by architect Matti Suuronen. When it was announced that the house would be shown at a local museum as a special exhibition, I had the idea to create a colorful fashion shoot that would match the bright yellow house, using slightly muted 1960′s tones.
I used a Profoto AcuteB with 5′ octabox as the main light. A Nikon SB-80DX with CTO warming gel was placed inside the house, behind model, to light the indoors and to give her a nice, warm, backlit glow. I used my PocketWizard Plus II radios to trigger the lights. I shot using a Nikon D700 with a 24-70mm and 85mm lens.
