Swim Shoot: TANYA
Styling and Design: KENNIE'S DOLL by Joyce Brown
HAIR: Stacey Barton of LOOK SHARP SALON
MUA: Michelle Kinkaid of GLAMOURViews
I did another collaborative shoot with the talented people above who I've worked with before and had a really fun time at the lake last Sunday. It was almost like having a picnic and just hanging out than an actual shoot =) A big thank you to Mark and Greg for scouting out the shoot location. And my models Tanya, Kim, Joyce and Darian, I know it was hot and the way down the lake was not easy but you guys were such troopers, and even hotter than the afternoon sun! :D
While I'm always happy with how my shots have been coming out, i have been struggling to come up with more variety with my composition. It seems like my style has always been the usual straight on catalog style of shooting. And while there's really nothing wrong with that, i need to get more creative with my composition.
In other news, my new toy accessory came in last Friday, just in time for this swim shoot. I don't know how i could manage to shoot outdoors now without it. I highly recommend it!
Lastly, to my U.S. FlickrFriends, have a great, happy 4th of July weekend !! =)
