A few weeks ago I worked with some lovely people on this shoot. Stylist Liz Scarlet came to me with an awesome idea, as she often does, and before I knew it I had a fantastic model ( Michelle Elisabeth ), an amazing make-up artist (Deniece van der Molen) and a fabulous stylist over at my place, getting ready to shoot.
It was a great day out, sunny and warm, and we decided to shoot under the bridge next to my house. It has this great, gritty look that really went with the whole ‘feel’ of the shoot.
Everything went so well! We worked fast, we were on the same page, the light was exactly the way I wanted it, we got perfect shot after perfect shot…sometimes everything just works.
After the first three outfits we went back inside for a little touch up and to get the remaining outfits. And then the clouds came…
Sure, great, of course, it’s not like we were trying to create a fashion editorial with consistent light… we got frustrated. We waited. And waited.. and waited… for the sun to show his smug face again. But no such luck, the clouds were getting more and more ominous. It looked like there was a storm coming. We had to go ahead and just work with what we had. At the time I was incredibly annoyed by it, I felt like the shoot was ruined and it would never make a good consistent set of photos. But luckily, I was wrong. When I look at the pictures now, I am so excited, so happy! These are some of my best shots so far. I can’t wait to share them with you! But it will have to wait a while longer.. I hope these behind-the-scenes pics will help make you a little bit curious..
See you next blog!
After months and months of procrastination, I’ve finally done it… A whole new website!
My old portfolio was seriously outdated, so badly that I didn’t even refer people to my webstite anymore, I just sent them to my facebook page.
I started to feel seriously embarassed about it, so it was time for some action. It feels good to have my own platform again, without the need to censor my work because Facebook can’t handle female nipples. ( pic features Marianne )
From now on all of my new projects will be posted here, and if I feel like I have something to share, I will also write a blog about the shoot, my work in general, and perhaps find the time to post some nifty little tutorials, tips and tricks etcetera.
I sincerely hope you will continue to check out my rantings and photographs!
