Union, NJ—Hasselblad vows to keep up artistic expression during these trying times of home quarantine and social distancing. The company’s efforts are titled # InspiredWithHasselblad. The Instagram program was established to appreciate the unique nature of creativity, especially under the challenge of spatial isolation.
Hasselblad hopes to rally its community of photographers together and celebrate the creative spirit by sharing images, inspiration and tips that fuel artistic energy.
#InspiredWithHasselblad opens with featured photographers such as Austrian product photographer Günther Egger. He finds beauty in floral arrangements and lighting techniques at home. Moreover, Swedish creative Olle Broksten gives tips on how one can use household items to create a studio at home as he did when photographing luxury perfume bottles.
In addition, Trinidadian/British photographer Donald Michael Chambers uses his own wife as his portrait subject in their Copenhagen home. He also gives tips on using ambient light to create cinematic scenes.
These photographers are sharing their advice for “at-home photography,” inspiration and motivation during these times. They also offer their own creative challenges to those at home whose living rooms are now their temporary studios.
As the campaign continues, Hasselblad will present more featured photographers for inspiration. They will also provide weekly highlights selected from creators who post their work shot with Hasselblad using the hashtag #InspiredWithHasselblad.
