I've been doing tons of shoots recently to beef up the ole portfolios, but also shoots for Liner editorials for the winter/Women in Charge issue out this December. I've been shooting once or twice (or sometimes thrice!) per day these past couple weeks and it's been an exhausting but inspiring whirlwind! I'm meeting so many great people, discovering so many weird nooks and crannies of LA, and can't wait to show you issue four soon! Above are some Instagram photos I took behind the scenes of 2 recent shoots.
These shoots were barely 12 hours apart. The 20's-meets-70's photos are from the other night when I ordered a bunch of great desserts from my favorite French bakery/restaurant in our neighborhood, Figaro Bistrot (if you live near Los Feliz, you should definitely check it out!). I wanted to create a really weird, surreal feel with three redheads and some peculiar lighting. We had dresses and jewelry literally on every surface of mine and Paul's apartment, and we had so much fun shooting into the night. We turned the place into a 20's flophouse and I shot with a 70's photojournalistic feel and 400 ASA for that grainy look. Can't wait to get my film developed from this! (Don't worry--Alexandria doesn't smoke that fake cigarette!). These girls are amazing and Alexandria, Angela and Courtney deserve a huge shout-out!
The white and wintery photos are from the following morning where Alexandria so amazingly came again to my apartment to model for me. Don't want to jinx it, but I think once I get the film developed, we'll have our cover photo from this shoot! I scavenged and painted the twigs and I think they looked so cool in her hair! Alexandria always brings the best clothes, but she also brought these beautiful Russian Dolls we just had to use.
All hair, makeup and photography by me :)
Check back in the first week of December to see the editorials in full swing in Volume Four of Liner!
Thanks so much Alexandria, Courtney and Angela! You three truly are rubies to behold!
