Colour In Motion / Seminyak

I had the opportunity to take part in a creative collaboration recently with good friend and awesome photographer Mike Flynn from The Palms Agency. All I knew on arrival to our shoot was the theme: Colour In Motion / Seminyak.

I took the opportunity to involve one of the newest and hottest boutiques in Bali – Little Island Store. They stock some great Island treasures including their own label “Rays for Days” as well as Aussie must have brand MLM Label.

We set up on Jalan Petitenget Seminyak, just down from Potato Head with a view of capturing movement, lights, some palms and the buzz that is Seminyak. What unfolded was a high energy, technical and super fun shoot.

The Palms Agency

I’ve worked with The Palms Agency over the last four years on a number of fashion based projects. The agency operates in Australia and around Asia producing a diverse range of visual content, including everything from photography and video for destination weddings, fashion, property, luxury brands and corporate events. With a candid yet professional style, it’s always a blast working with them.

Theme: Colour In Motion / Seminyak

As photographer Mike Flynn explained: The photography series was partly a creative experiment with different kinds of lighting effects combined with the objective to feature the On Any Given Day style and fashion.

“I was aiming to produce a series of images that depict the moment early in the evening, when a day of shopping in Seminyak finishes and you are about to head off to meet friends for a fun bite to eat and a few cheeky cocktails. Images with a sense of fun, excitement and movement.” Mike, The Palms Agency

Mike went on to achieve this by capturing a mixture of moving lights from the busy Seminyak night time traffic, with still flash photography and with the addition of some vibrant moving light-painting effects.

Each scene was set up with a tripod and multiple remote-controlled flashes front and rear. The flashes were all set to trigger from an automated camera remote.

All I had to do was stand there (pose!) while the camera and flashes fired and Mike moved around the scene with the light wand, painting the air like a possessed Bali traffic warden. This was hilarious in itself. Many people walking past just looked at us weirdly. 

The results were exciting and unexpected. Each image a vibrant creation of moving lights around me. With little post production or retouching required we both felt the series was a perfect fit with the brief: Colour in Motion / Seminyak.

Little Island Store

If you’re looking for a hidden treasure, look no further than Seminyak’s Little Island Store. Set between Mexicola and Grocer & Grind, this gorgeous little boutique is making its mark on the Bali shopping circuit. Not only stocking their own island vibe labels such as Rays for Days and Island Addict, the store also offers cutting edge labels like MLM and Zie The Label. With a mix of accessories, jewels and homewares, Little Island Store has a piece of Bali gold for everyone to take home.

Rays For Days / Metalik

‘Rays For Days’ is perfect for Island living. Reworking resort wear and delivering for all those glam days poolside, beach club sessions and sunset hours. The white Beachdaze Pinafore featured in this post is such a sexy number to style up or down for Seminyak nights or poolside hangs.

I am totally obsessed with the ‘Metalik, Rock On’ leather stud handbag. The leather is to die for, soft, supple and the studding just adds a cool rock chick vibe. Complimented with a Little Island scarf for some extra mood and you’ll have it all going on.

MLM / Little Island Local

One of the featured labels at Little Island, is killer Aussie label MLM. If you’re looking for a stand out piece, MLM is your go-to. Sexy off-shoulder numbers and feminine floral prints are perfect for Bali living or Summertime fun.

The red ‘Jett Ruffle Romper’ featured in this post is the ultimate summer party outfit. Super comfy and girlie with ruffle details this is something that is a must in the wardrobe.

Another label in the Little Island line up is Little Island Local. The Sundial Tote featured in this post is one of many ‘of the moment’ bags available in the store. From the Bali Roundies to the new Sundial Tote there are so many great Bali bags on offer at Little Island Store.
