Editorial Street Wear Style | Still and MotionMay 9, 2017 | Photo
I shot this for an editorial. Dani Jo is a creative with skills in modeling and hair and makeup. She sent me a selfie of these incredible braids, which took seven-hours and three people to finish. I had to shoot her in some sort of streetwear style as a taking off point along with British attitude- Amy Winehouse or The Sex Pistols. I pulled clothes from Pretty in Patina but ended up only a granite top from Michelle Consume and these dope Converse brown leather kicks. Originally I lit with big sources cut back with negative fill for a good beauty base. She arrived and I wasn’t feeling it so I struck everything. The considered scope of shooting still and motion I had to audition strobe and continuous light sources. For the second change, I kept it simple and used a Kino Flo mounted low on a pigeon with a grid and Opal gel. I saved the JokerBug HMI and went outside on the dock for change three. It turned out to fit the clothing and feel right. I hope the piece helps get in front of more creatives. What I take away from this is how inspiration can change when you see something you didn’t consider when pre-visualize.
