I am back with another casting call for an idea that I can just not get out of my head. That's right, it's going to be sugar skull time! I bought those lovelies after Halloween (which I have a previous blog post about) and they are just so pretty that they've bee popping little ideas here and there. Well, I'm going to be moving in a few weeks (yay, studio space) and I want to at least knock out one creative photoshoot before the big move and the holidays so that I can feel good about myself when the productivity comes to a ham-induced stop.
First of all, I have two masks (that can be seen in a previous blog post), a male and a female. I had a super sweet girl volunteer for this first round of modeling with the female mask already, but like I said, there will probably be more. I feel like only a girl will be wearing the female mask, however, I am not opposed to a female wearing the male mask as well. In fact I really like that idea because I am an old school Chanel-esque fan of pretty women wearing mens clothes. That may actually be the second shoot….
I also mentioned that some alternate locations I would like to shoot at are in the Mt. Dora/Altamonte Springs/Orlando area. I haven't been there myself yet but I have a friend that lives up there and has told me of their existence so I will check it out and be more specific about the area later. So if anyone is in that area or had friends in that area that would be able to spare like an hour to an hour and half for a fun shoot, please send this their way. I don't mind going with someone from the Tampa area but it is quite a drive and not fair to ask someone to do that.
Make up would not really be an issue for this one because the faces are masks and you will more than likely have it on the whole time.
As usual for most of my shoots, ethnicity does not matter.
Also, be able to follow instructions. That seems simple a rude, and I apologize for that but I mean it. Sometimes you end up with people that want to smile in a serious shoot and frown go vogue in a light-hearted happy shoot. If I want you to serious or scary, please have the ability to comply with that. Otherwise, don't bother.
Other than that, I'll be posting ideas as I get them and will always be sure to update so if you think you would be interested between now and January for a sugar skull part! Let me know!
Thanks again and all the love that this heart can stand,
