We were very stressed out before this shoot, the location was vague and it was unknown if all the elements we needed would be available and we definitely were not allowed to be lighting smoke bombs on this land, like at all haha I was rushing to finish sewing the skirt minutes before I had to leave, and Austin's infamous traffic problems reared its ugly head. But once we saw our location and the model was in place, all of that melted away and it was beautiful, serene, and freeing.
I'm very blessed to have such wonderful teams for photoshoots, Shannon did a fantastic job on the make up, and Alex is always so sweet and enthusiastic when assisting! I love having men around (especially when heavy things are involved haha) but there's just something special about having a team of women on photoshoot day <3
On Tuesday my fiancé and I will have been together for seven years(!!), and this is kind of what it feels like
Tech things for my fellow photographer friends:
This was shot using 100% natural lighting, we didn't even use a reflector or anything. We lit a smoke bomb and let it fade out, creating the haze in the back, and besides a slight toning, all the colors here are true to what was straight out of camera.
This is one of my favorite songs, and this photo reminds me of it exactly <3
Anybody that has followed my Flickr page for any time knows that I love Coca-Cola art and advertising. I don't just like the old Coke signs and adds, I like to create them, using my camera and Photoshop. I love this old Coke bottle. I found it at an antiques store in Boulder City, Nevada. I got the idea, for the world map soda spill, from another Flickr user. I did put my own twist on it. Shot with my Canon 5D mark ii and 40mm prime pancake lens.
