Tronized Beauty

You know those moments when you come across something so simple yet so well done that it really makes you appreciate the time and effort involved? It’s not only well-executed, with the right model, styling or lighting, it just feels like a cohesive set? If not, then check out this series called Tronized Beauty by Paris, France-based photographer Ludovic Taillandier.

Taillandier tells us how it all, serendipitously, came together:

“To be quite frank, it was improvised at the last minute. I’m always searching for little tricks to go beyond my knowledge limits, so each time I see something that could create or interact with light, I’m always on the lookout to try it.

“This time, I was browsing eBay for little ‘toys’ I could play with, and I ended up looking at small laser pens, and it hit me. I had to use those for a personal shoot.

“The day before, when I met Julie, the model at the agency, I was fond of her hair, and thought it would play perfectly with a laser beauty series. I knew my talented team would create great hair and makeup to go along with it all.

“Afterward, I thought to myself that I had seen Tron not that long ago. Maybe that’s where the inspiration on the shooting came from, I just had to play with a laser and see what I could do with it. I always push myself towards directions that defy me…

“I’m actually thinking about another way to use the same laser, for a nude series this time. Stay tuned.”
