MADONNA’S HARD CANDY FITNESS SHOOT

Posted on: August 8th, 2014 by gregvanriel 3 Comments

Recently I did a cool shoot for Stanford Downey Architects at Hard Candy, Madonna’s fitness club.  Something I liked right away was the Wall Yoga room. I met with Lori Kirwan who demonstrated how Wall Yoga is done.  Here she is below, hanging from the Wall like a ship’s figurehead.

This group of shots give us the scope and size of the club.

As you can see this is a huge club with many different workout machines.

_DSC0447_DSC9883I thought the lighting in this Spinning Room was quite dramatic.  I just used available light and bracketed and then used the overlay technique.  It’s a combination of 4 shots.

_DSC9907I had fun shooting Hard Candy Fitness.  I hope you enjoyed seeing these shots.  Feel free to leave me some comments.

    Greg,
    These shots at Hard Candy are fabulous. The way you’ve captured the space and the light is amazing. My favourites are the yoga wall and the green floor. Thanks for sharing them.

    I’m really enjoying the design and layout of your blog. It’s a very easy on the eyes which
    makes it much more pleasant for me to come
    here and visit more often. Did you hire out a designer to create your theme?
    Fantastic work!
