Creative with Chris

In the beginning of May, Chris S. contacted me with a bunch of cool ideas.
Her head is always full of corny and funny ideas, perfect for having a varied and interesting shoot. ^^

This time, we settled upon creating several "types".

The gold-digger, seemingly inspired by La Chapelle's inzane world of fancy, was a fun one.

The Gold-digger shot, came out really great, the MUA-job was colorful and lovely.
- Chris S is a MUA.
The blonde hair, along with the make-up, the fancy expression, provocative cleavage and the strong color in the red walled and the straw, really supported the "sucker for money" theme.

I was a little short of 100 dollar-bills, so 1000 yen-bills would have to suffice.(wish I had a bunch of hyper-inflated Zimbabwean hundred million dollar bills hahaha! )

I replaced the background in post, to create a little high-class-society/casino look to the shot.


We also did some classic beauty-shots where she was wearing a cool, bob-shaped wig.
Imo this shows of Chris's lovely facial features well.
I used a simple beauty-light setup for this, funny seeing her in that bob, very unusual, as I only know her as a long-haired blonde/brunette girl in most settings.  ^^

The next shots, were created as point-your-nose criticism on the Barbie culture and how it is impossible for most normal human women to live up to the "ideal" plastic-"beauty idea". Chris got hold of a really Barbie-looking wig for the occation. We also used oils to create a real plasticy feel to the skin, which was also enhanced later.

Finally, we also did a tasteful B&W nudes series. Here we used an all white mask on some of the shots, which created a little mystical/theatrical feel

The nudes are a challenge, because you strive to make them as good as you can, and at the same time, the model needs to be comfortable. Getting the final results as close as possible to the models own inspirational idea, is imperative for most of the types of projects I do.



Very fun shoot with miss Chris S, hope to collaborate again in the near future. ^^
