She arrived with a vintage Gunne Sax dress, and as we spoke, I realized I had another piece of wardrobe that would work well for her. So we ended up doing three shoots on this sunny, fall day, and I think they were all pretty damn glorious. I'm posting the one I just finished editing, and I'll be sharing the other two (as well as two previous shoots I've done with her) in the coming weeks.
It's true, I can use myself as a model, and I do. But it's also fun to have multiple models with different looks and abilities, so I can dream up and then execute shoots. It keeps me excited, creatively, even if nothing more comes of it than having a fun time, making art!
I wanted to start wide and play a bit.
This is another composite where her legs and hair were looking their best, but the dress covered up some parts or didn't have the best movement. I used part of her leg from another shot and part of her dress from two other shots to create a more epic look.
