Steffen has been to the studio several times with his costumes. He has built some of the best Star Wars costumes I have ever seen, this time he was all excited to get shot in his movie accurate spider-man outfit. Unfortunately the night before the shoot he burst the zippier and couldn’t get it repaired in time.  I had just finished shooting Jasmine doing her yoga and hand stands when he arrived and thought hay keep the same light set up, shoot white on white and have some fun with it.

First of I have to thanks Malysal for jumping in last minute and modelling as my original couldn’t make it. My co-photographer this week was Dennis , it was cool to shoot with a fellow Alpha user. The fact that our lens collection complement each other and we could use triggers with out adapters added to the fun.

Día de Muertos

Day of the Dead (Spanish: Día de Muertos) is a Mexican holiday celebrated throughout Mexico and around the world in other cultures. The holiday focuses on gatherings of family and friends to pray for and remember friends and family members who have died. It is particularly celebrated in Mexico, where it is a national holiday, and all banks are closed. The celebration takes place on November 1 and 2, in connection with the Catholic holidays of All Saints’ Day and All Souls’ Day. Traditions connected with the holiday include building private altars honouring the deceased using sugar skulls, marigolds, and the favourite foods and beverages of the departed and visiting graves with these as gifts. They also leave possessions of the deceased.

Often referred to as the “Queen of Pinups”, her jet black hair, blue eyes, and trademark bangs have influenced artists for generations.

Picture of Dorian Gray

This week I continued my Monday night studio project with Vincent as model and Stephanie as guest  photographer. A few months ago Vincent suggested a shoot based on Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde. I jumped at the chance to do this shoot as the concept fitted will to a few ideas I have had floating around in the back of my head for a while now. It also bought back memories of when I read the book during a backpacking trip from Sydney to Perth way back in the mid 90’s. The concept behind this shoot was then to portray a journey of self destruction through light and lens choice, I also wanted to keep the lighting at around constant f8 (we actually shoot between f7.1 and 9) so that there was a continuation look and feel through out the night.
