American Express Campaign

Our Latest Photography Project

POST-4.jpg

I am presenting you one of our latest projects for American Express Corporate Online campaign, which consisted of few images.
We were unfortunate on the day of the shoot since the weather conditions were very poor with a very low contrast light, rain, and grey clouds, therefore the challenge was in post-production.

To see this image in Hi Res and the rest of the campaign, please visit our website: www.hanymusallam.com and leave your comments.

Luckily I had some old stock images of Riyadh landscape on a sunny day, which actually looks better than nowadays city-scape cluttered with new buildings constructions all over the city center. This was a best solution for the first layout,

For the other layouts, another solution had to be implemented, in which I have shot the background separately with ambient light in HDR technology in order to get the most out of the background grades which had a nice dynamic pattern caused by reflections and transparency on several layers of glass. The second shot of people was shot using strobe lights, then implemented on the background HDR image which was shot from the same spot. The result came out outstanding, and the client was very satisfied...

Memories from Poland: Oronsko

Workshop trip to the Polish Sculpture Center in Oronsko

In 1998 when I was still studying in the Academy of Fine Arts in Lodz, Poland, together with my classmates from the applied photography department and our dearest Pan Prof. Grzegorz Przyborek we went on a workshop to The Polish Sculpture Center in Oronsko in the heart of Poland. Two groups of students shared this great two-week experience, students of sculpture and of applied photography, I represented the second one and we had to create an object for photography in the environment followed by a group exhibition of students works realized during the workshop, first in the same center and later back in the Strzeminski Academy of Fine Arts in Lodz.

"Al-Ramla"

Back in 2005 I was assigned to document in photos one of the most difficult and scary trips in the largest sand desert in the world. I was very excited to join the team in this trip, although I didn't have a clear idea of what to expect, & discovered later that this place is heaven on earth. It’s the perfect run-away place, away from all signs of present civilization, no crowd, people, mobiles; no streets, no cars, no noise... Thousands of kilometers of pure sand and calmness.
