I’m getting ready for my next photo shoot and realized I forgot to post photos from the last one. So here’s a look back at our Laser Lace photo shoot:
When fashion photographer (and friend) Ricardo Louis and I were walking around Prospect Park scouting a location for our photo shoot, we decided to leave by way of the Grand Army Plaza arch. We walked up to the fountain and immediately thought, wow, can we shoot on the statue?
The answer is, yes, yes we can. We just had to overcome the issue of traversing the water surrounding the statue with model, hair stylist, make-up artist, photographer, assistant, and me.
My intern Kristin had the excellent idea of outfitting all of us in rain boots and we brought a step ladder to help us climb in and out of the water.
We had the pleasure of working with an excellent model from Click Models. She did a really nice job making dreamy model eyes. This is surprisingly hard to do, because the models squint a little which usually makes one eye bigger than the other. Some models do special exercises to maintain evenness. In addition, we are using reflectors to shine the sun directly into the models face (and eyes).
I wanted a 40′s hair style, so we worked with Selda Cortes from Lotus Salon who specializes in vintage pin-up hair styles. Make-up artist Jessica Jade Jacob often works with the NY Pin-up society, did the make-up.
