Ah, the magic of Photoshop. I’m a master.
15 mars 2018 : shoot UNICEF / Dan Carter in a large studio in Paris.


Two-time Rugby World Cup winner Dan Carter will swap the rugby ball for the football after announcing he will take part in the Soccer Aid for Unicef match on Sunday 10th June.
One of the finest players of his generation, the 112-cap former All Black legend is the highest ever points scorer in international test match rugby.
Dan Carter, Soccer Aid World XI, said: “It took me all of about one second to say yes when I was asked to play in Soccer Aid for Unicef! I can’t wait to get out onto the Old Trafford pitch and support this fantastic cause. The last time I played in front of a big crowd in England I won the Rugby World Cup, so although the shape of the ball will be different this time I am hoping for similar success on Sunday 10th June!”
Who else is playing?
The full line-up is yet to be released, but big stars have signed up including Mo Farah, Usain Bolt, Robbie Williams, Olly Murs and Gordon Ramsay. Over the coming weeks, the England v Soccer Aid World XI team sheets will see some of football’s biggest legends and celebrities join the line-ups.
Soccer Aid has previously featured A-list stars such as Will Ferrell, Woody Harrelson, Mike Myers and Niall Horan, plus footballing royalty including Maradona, Zinedine Zidane, Luis Figo and Ronaldinho.
When is Soccer Aid? And how do I get a ticket?
Soccer Aid is on June 10, 2018 and will be held at Old Trafford in Manchester.
Tickets are on sale now and are priced between £10 and £50.
They are available at www.manutd.com/socceraid or by calling 0161 444 2018 (calls charged at standard geographical rates)
The match will be screened live on ITV.
What does the money raised from Soccer Aid go towards?
All public donations to Soccer Aid will go towards Unicef's work protecting children in the UK and globally.
An incredible £24 million has already been raised through the event over the last 12 years.






Daniel William Carter dit « Dan Carter », né le 5 mars 1982 à Leeston, à une quarantaine de kilomètres de Christchurch, est un joueur néo-zélandais de rugby à XV. Il évolue au poste de demi d'ouverture même s'il peut également jouer en tant que centre.
International All Black depuis 2003, il est considéré comme le meilleur demi d'ouverture de l'histoire de cette équipe. Le 12 juin 2010, il est le quatrième buteur (après Neil Jenkins, Diego Domínguez et Jonny Wilkinson) à passer les 1 000 points inscrits en équipe nationale, après la victoire des All Blacks contre l'Irlande 66 à 28 en test match. Il bat une première fois le record de Wilkinson établi à 1 111 points lors de la victoire néo-zélandaise contre les Springboks à l'occasion de la cinquième rencontre du Tri-nations 2010 totalisant 1 118 points. Il porte finalement son record mondial de points à 1 598 à l'issue de la finale de la Coupe du monde 2015.
Sacré champion du monde en 2011 malgré une blessure en début de compétition qui le conduit à déclarer forfait pour le reste de celle-ci, il dispute l'édition 2015 en Angleterre et remporte la finale face à l'Australie (34-17) où il marque 19 points et où les All Blacks deviennent la première équipe triple championne du monde et la première à conserver le titre. Élu pour la troisième fois joueur de l'année par le World Rugby, il met dans la foulée un terme à sa carrière internationale et rejoint le Racing 92 dans le championnat de France Top 14.

Cryogenic valves from the manufacturer Ireland in February 1997.
The valves are mainly used for aerospace applications, notably for the Ariane launch vehicles, so they’ll only be used one time.


The narrow and long softbox is perfect to highlight the shiny edges of the valves. The back light is indispensable to give them depth.

8 - Un truc très lourd pour stabiliser la poubelle.
9 - L'extincteur, au cas où.
10 - Le couvercle de la poubelle qu'on peut replier pour étouffer un feu trop incontrôlable.
11 - Une chaise pour patienter quand cela brûle lentement.
12 - La table avec les trucs à brûler.
13 - Le tuyau d'arrosage, au cas où.

Ne reproduisez pas cela chez vous sans les accessoires de sécurité mentionnés ci-dessus.


Cela peut quand même dégénérer


La table avec les trucs à bruler.


Les bougies et les scintillants, facile !




Les tirages photos brûlent-t-il ?


Oui.

De très vielles allumettes russes, vintages : seul le phosphore brûle très rapidement, les tiges en bois et la boîte sont déjà bien ignifugées pour cette époque.
Les allumettes de sureté méritent bien leur noms.





Pour symboliser la mort de la photo ?


Les anciens badges brûlent bien aussi !





Les poupées Barbie sont très très bien ignifugées, seuls leurs cheveux brûlent facilement, puis, après, les vêtements.


Paris brûle-t-il ?

This list begins with the compilations: Fashion & Models, Lingerie, Beauty, Makeup & Hair, Portraits, Events, Objects, Archi & Deco, Industry, Press, Celebrities, etc.

There is also a search command, not always up to date, but pretty comprehensive on all my reportages:
