Back in September and October, I had the wonderful priviledge of working with one of the editors of a new magazine called Citta as well as two wonderful models who were up to trying almost anything to obtain beautiful German Burlesque inspired images. We drew inspiration from many sources including Ellen Von Unwerth. Our objective was to produce images that were compelling and that told a story of the burlesque world of old. The models Marie Doroftei and Eloise Bélanger were wonderful. Marie who is also a hairdresser did all the hair and makeup you see in the images. A great job was done by all and some or all of the following images were published in Citta’s launch which took place at the end of October 2012. Check out this wonderful magazine which was launched to bring together artists from Montreal the the world and artists from around the world to Montreal. http://www.cittamagazine.ca/
I recently did a photoshoot with a beautiful you woman. Everyone believes that they can take a good picture with their point and shoot camera or their iphone’s, blackberry’s etc. However, the difference between a good picture and a great picture takes planning. Make-up, hair, clothes, setting up the sceen, how do you want to be represented, and lastly post-production or retouching. I wanted to show everyone how a little planning will get you the great shoot. Check out the following:
Before & After
Getting your model comfortable and posing her to get her best feminin angles.
I wanted to try my hand at a little more boudoir and was inspired by Dita Von Teese. She has the retro or vintage look all the while looking rather contemporary. If found a model who when posed the right way looks so much like Dita she could be her sister. We had a great time doing this shoot and hope that it will lead to more in the future.
Interested in doing a boudoir shoot with me that has a vintage twist to it? Just contact me. I’ll be thrilled to oblige.
