How did it go Misahoi?

Here is a shot that we did in studio on Monday night with a different model. I still don't have the prints from last Saturday...

We shot outdoors with a different team yesterday. I hope to get the disk tonight...we used a 10 megapixel camera! It was lovely.

...and if anyone has any doubts, this is tough work! My feet are killing me after a week of pounding the pavement borrowing clothes and doing shoots. Hopefully it will all pan out into a job afterall.

Oops...here they are. From Monday night. Just playing with my clothes. Too big for the model but pinned within an inch of their lives!

Urban Angels
Here's a few of the shots from our "Urban Angels" shoot last week where I played on the styling from the Alexander McQueen S/S 2005 collection. We used the same dress the next day for a model's test, so I'll post that too.

I'm extremely pleased with the riverside shoot. The team was very professional and I got just what I needed. (More attachments forthcoming...)

What do you think?

Three full looks for the story...not including simple changes (like removing a jacket). I just didn't have the time or the budget to do more.

Five looks for the test.

I liked the model in the "Angel" shoot. I would like to work with her again.

hmm...i think i actually like the other model more...
but it's hard to tell from only one shot...

fyi-a 'story'...should usually be four to six pages...
for practical reasons...
you want 'spreads' in your book... a page on each side....front and back..
so even numbers work best...
four is usually enough and more than six can be boring...

*it's also usually a good idea to shoot at least one more than you think you need ...
because there is usually one that just isn't as strong as the rest...
and then you can drop that one...

...with more time and money
Thanks for the advice Softgrey. The choice to do 3 instead of 4 or more was for quality over quantity reasons. Because I'm not getting paid for the shoot and only had 3 days to pull the clothes (on top of my current full-time job) I went with what I thought would look strongest.

In the future I will plan for more.

The model standing on the sand is more commercial but she only really has one "look" and she has small eyes.

One of the weaknesses of being so far "east" is that there isn't much access to cutting edge clothing too. It's a shame. You can imagine something really beautiful but pound the pavement all week and only come up with half of the look. I'm sure this will get easier but I can only imagine how lovely it would be to do this job in Paris or New York instead.

that is short notice!! Although, I'm sure for Italian Vogue, Milla Jovovich (and you! :p ) the pr's would have done their best to help!

I usually have 3 days to do 8-10 looks for 2 shoots. I think any longer to prep for a shoot would give me too long to think and re-think and change my mind and get confused. Short & stressful prep time makes for better shoots!
