Fashion Shoot – Picnic at Hanging Rock
With the long weekend giving time a plenty, it was well overdue to get out into the elements and create something different, when starting this shoot I wanted to throw regard out the window and shoot with emotion rather then composition and lighting, yes they play a role, but I wanted to break into new and unchartered territory
With thanks to Rebecca Jane @ ModelMode we were supplied the model Jacalyn Williams … on the morning of the photo shoot as unfortunately the other model was unable to make it, so straight away we were delving into the unknown. I had no idea what the model looked like, they had little or no idea of my photo shoot, but we got everyone at my house at about 11am after having a chat about the shoot and everyones roles, collecting a wardrobe for the model, makeup and brunch it was off to the location.
The “theme” of the shoot revolved about “Picnic at Hanging Rock” however I didnt shoot the classic style as I did not want to be stepping in someone elses tracks so I shot more of the lost girl, initially exploring and enjoying herself only to be found lost and afraid, with no real resolve.
Everything in the end came together and we created a shoot that resembled “Picnic at Hanging Rock” and encompassed old world character with some more modern photography techniques.
A special thanks goes to the following people who with out them the shoot would not have happened, Rebecca Jane – ModelMode, Jacalyn Williams – Model, Jacinta Brett – Makeup Artist, Andrew Coles / Alysha Holder – Photographers Assistants and also like to thank myself Brett Robson who created the shoot and ideas.
