I have some portrait shoots coming up that I've been dreaming up over Winter. It put in mind of some of the photo series I have done under the Calico Jo's Photo Art banner. I have 3 favourite series which were as much fun to prepare as taking the photos. Hereare the highlights of the 3 series and a little about them.
The Sea Maidens
This series was based around 3 seamaidens wearing costumes created from cheesecloth tubing. They were all no sew. The dresses were made by creating cuts and knots. There were also head pieces that were made from seashells and beads.
I had 3 beautiful models to work with and a fab makeup artist.
The 3 costumes were inspired by aspects of the sea:
The first costume had a really long train and I wanted it to resemble the white water running over rocks.
The second was inspired by sea creatures like squid, octupus and jelly fish. It had long plaited segments at the back loke tentacles.
The 3rd costume was inspred by fishing nets.
The weather was so cold and stormy. I am very for the models for turning up and doing it.
A hot summer and some cool black and whites
Photo Series Based on Nursery Rhymes
I'm not taking a full series again yet, but I do have some pretty and fun photos coming up
