I really don’t like reality shows and rarely even bother checking them out but the previews for BRAVO’s new show ‘Double Exposure’ were interesting so I gave it a look.
I’m lovin’ it.
‘Double Exposure’ follows photographers Markus Klinko and Indrani as they shoot celebs and models and fashion and fine art. It is more documentary than reality crapola.
It caught my attention mostly because anything about photography interests me. I assumed that it would focus entirely on celeb asshat moments and model’s eating disorders but I’m happy to say I was wrong.
Although there are moments of “where’s Lindsey? she’s 8 hours late” there are also many moments of watching Markus and Indrani scout locations and set up shots.
In one segment Indrani demonstrated how she edited shots to take advantage of light and shadow and how she combined elements of different shots to create one perfect piece of art.
Markus customized all his equipment and is so clearly in love with his camera.
Markus and Indrani are ex-lovers who remain friends and are now business partners.
As a former model Indrani brings a unique perspective to setting up shots. Markus began his creative career as a classical musician before becoming interested in photography.
Together they are dynamic and chaotic and often brilliant.

Markus and Indrani’s online PORTFOLIO contains an exceptional collection of their portraits to view. Their work is beautiful.
This shot of Dita Von Teese ...
... is floating all over the interweb tubes so I scooped it up. This photo shoot was part of episode 2 of ‘Double Exposure’. As hard as it might be to believe this shot isn’t even one of the best.
