After a couple of months of planning, obtaining the props and getting the styling right, it was great to finally shoot with Sophie Dawn and Di Dakin providing the makeup. We were supposed to be shooting back in May but the day we set aside was a snowy day with a good 4 inches or so of snow laid down. Were we supposed to be in springtime or the depths of winter? It was now towards the end of June and I was hoping for sunshine and warmth so we could spend more time outside. Instead we had cold winds and rain showers so we stopped inside the studio for much of the time. But we were determined to shoot outside in the woods for the native American headdress shots. So I hope you like a few of the photos we worked on during the day.
We went out recently with model Emma Kate Dawson to record a small video for her singing website. We were using the Nikon D600 and Nikon 24-70 f2.8 lens in manual focus. Post production in Adobe Premiere Pro was used and we mixed in some clips to modify the grading to produce an old retro home cine-camera look.
