Tiffany is always such fun to hang out with, and is such a sport about testing new lighting and ideas with! This was one of those shoots where we shot outside, we shot other things, but the images we got from shooting in the spooky basement just made the other ones pale in comparison. I think the black and white pictures look like a 1930s horror or film noir film, or even slightly gothic. Definitely moody and emotive!
Tiffany dressed in a 1960s medieval costume that is the perfect color of aqua green to come off perfectly in black and white, or with a bit of a Kodachrome effect (and no white-balance correction).
I’m including a creepy squirrel pic, because even though it’s not my “best”, we laughed alot about that one. I kept telling her that there was a creepy squirrel behind the trash she was sitting on, and she was like “ya the squirrels do seem to be out today”.
I’d like to do more of a Princess theme in this dress in a future shoot… but this isn’t bad for pulling together on a whim and goofing off!
Her faux lashes and makeup were put on by me. I did her eyes with gold and green, which incidentally also came off really well in black and white. It still amazes me that not only am I surprisingly good at applying faux lashes, but that doing makeup on other girls always seems to work out really well. I took oil painting lessons for 4 years, and a few basic art classes in college, and I immerse myself in vintage images, so maybe I “get” it more than I’ve previously given myself credit for!
