Oh my gosh you guys, I just finished a week long work / visit with kambriel and I have SO MANY AMAZING PHOTOS I want to show you, but I can’t until after they are submitted for publication, which could take months.

SO, I will show you behind the scenes instead. Starring vburnham and thebirdbones (who did H/MU and modeled for me due to a no show*). Long, long, looooooooooong day, but so many great shots.

* Aside: Don’t no show / no call / no text for a shoot that has been planned for months, especially when the designer flies from the East Coast  to provide styling and wardrobe. Very bad juju for you.

Behind the scenes!

Rabbit

Model: skywartooth

H/MUA: thebirdbones

A little insight into my brain:

I found the “mask” that she is wearing while wandering around an antique shop, and the first thing I thought was “Wow! It looks like a rabbit mask from Bioshock! Very cool. I wonder why it’s so tiny?”

Only after carrying around for 20 minutes did I realize I was holding an animal pelvis that had been gessoed to death.

Of course that didn’t change anything, and it’s still a rabbit mask to me!

This was just a H/MU shot for Gina, but the texture in her whirled dreads, and her earring and her ringlets, just made for a lovely stand alone portrait. So much texture!

Backlighting, cast shadow, reflection! Oh, and lens flare, so the Quadrinity?

The Collector

Model: skywartooth

H/MUA: thebirdbones

To me she looked like some sort of slayer of demon dolls and possessed toys, wearing her trophies like a primal warrior.

These blurred photos won’t be stopping any time soon so brace yourselves. In fact, I will be graduating to actual frosted plexiglass instead of my trusty roll of vinyl. I’m eternally fascinated by the different blur effects achieved by distance, light, and color.
