Ok, so it wasn’t a full size Reese’s cup either, but one of those mini versions and a mini pack of Nerds. Late night carbs….Boudoir? we’ll get to that in a bit and the feathers are actually imitation Eagle feathers. There are strict law’s who can actually possess an Eagle feather, and despite some of my American Indian heritage I am not one of those lucky few… So there are two parts to this update, first up… (if the word Boudoir caught your eye, skip to the bottom then work your way back up)
So, about the Eagle feathers! It was my 2nd time shooting Ratheal in this war bonnet. Although the first shoot we did for this project produced some photographically splendid work…I didn’t feel it was the direction, look and feel I want to go with this newly defining project. Outfit, Makeup and warbonnet are perfect yet it was me who failed. My main purpose with this series (Indian Ink) is to possibly have a book or art exhibit from it. I feel the first shoot was just too commercially photographed. Technically better than the 2nd shot and better than my 2nd model of the series, I much prefer the feeling this and Antonia’s shoots provide. Some opinion’s may differ, but after all it’s myself I’m trying to please!
So, you’ve already seen those above…here’s one from the 2nd shoot as well as some footage I threw together.
Additional images from this shoot in the video below
This weekend provided some great shots…and I can honestly say some of these next few images will go into my book of all time favs thus far. I wasn’t going to blog these at first, but I received the approval and encouragement to do so!
I was contacted by Maria through my Facebook page of all places! She was inquiring about some “Boudoir” style photos for her boyfriend for fathers day. It was really short notice, but I happened to have a free weekend. Ironically, she never wears makeup. Ever… She claims this was the first time she’s really ever tried it. Well, I didn’t make her do it herself but put her in the capable hands of ..surprisingly my wife whom just completed and received a MUA certification. All my normal MUA’s are far too busy for short notice work, so it was a treat to work this session along with my wife and boss HER around for once.
Anyways, I’d love to shoot her again for my own personal work some day! And I hear this father’s day gift went over well. Ladies, looking for a gift your significant other will surely enjoy? Maybe we can help. Shoot me an email!
