Models: vburnham and thebirdbones

H/MU: thebirdbones

Wardrobe: kambriel

I have been waiting FOREVER to share these. Well, since April anyway. This series (but some different photos) were in issue 34 of Dark Beauty Magazine and we were not allowed to post them until 30 days after publication.

There will be several sets to follow, all featuring wardrobe by kambriel. thebirdbones was wonderful to step in when the other model did a no show the day of the shoot.

Although this looks like it’s been Photoshopped extensively, it was actually shot behind a heat warped plastic sheet with a four foot light reflector placed behind the model. The light source was a skylight that bounced the light off the reflector. It was shot in color and desaturated in PS, but all the weird blur and textures are real world.

This is the last of it, hope you have enjoyed the rest of the series. I wish I had access to old houses all the time, such a great creative playground!

I have to give the model a lot of credit for pulling this off. It was a long day, and she kept the energy fresh outfit after outfit and room after room. Thanks ammalynn!

I don’t often share my commercial work here, mostly because it’s boring, but this shoot was fun and is also a local Portland, OR company, and the shoot features many of my fave local models. Trixie & Milo Fine Flasks (trixieandmilo.com) carries a lovely assortment of kitschy Americana themed flasks with a humorous bent.

Crazy versatile H/MU by the ever amazing thebirdbones
