This is Erik Johansson’s latest photo project Full Moon Service. The photo was shot in late summer of 2016, on a beautiful calm evening, in the middle of Sweden and is a fascinating photo on so many levels. There is so much going on in this full moon service photo and there are minute details in every part of the photo.
How Full Moon Service Was Shot
To stage the photo, Erik brought out a bunch of rice lamps or paper lanterns, light bulbs, an electric generator to power the lights in the middle of a field, a goods carrier vehicle and two models out in a field.
Here’s a three minute video that takes you through the process of making the photo come to life — right from from sketching the idea down on paper, to taking everything for the shoot, staging the shoot, shooting it and then onto the final composition and editing.
