It’s been awhile since I’ve posted any of my recent work. So I thought that I would post some of that here to keep you all posted on my recent work.
Lately, I have been largely inspired by Sue Bryce and Bambi Cantrell. These photographers are amazing and seem to be able to capture women at their very best. I have been brushing up on my direction of models as well as how I pose them. This has enabled me to drop the amount of pictures I take from about 450, in the hopes of getting a few great shots, to 160 or so (which almost guarantees me 30 very good shots). With me directing more, I am making the shots happen as opposed to hoping something comes up. My sucess rate has thus increased by 100% or more.
I have also begun using lots of tulle, which to me is very feminin, lace and chiffon. I love the way these flow and can bring out the best in a woman’s femininity.
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/
