After weeks of planning and thrift shopping we finally managed to put our 1920 style fashion together and with Jasmine I knew we could pull of a sexy and mysterious androgynous look that is visually awesome. And with Jasmine as the model and Shy on makeup duties I really think we pulled it off completely.
And I’m really feeling good about this as this was the first time I took the reigns of stylist all by my lonesome. And Jasmine did make some awesome suggestions and additions, but I won’t lie and tell you I wasn’t a tad bit nervous about taking on this task. But I felt I’ve worked on enough sets and paid attention to other stylists and I made sure to take my time and not rush the concept. And it didn’t hurt that I did have some great source material being a fan of prohibition type style and fashion. But to actually go from conception to creation was just awesome. I had a lot of fun out thrifting and working to pull this shoot together. I can really see myself taking a larger part in future shoots when it comes to styling.
And it also helps when you have a great team who doesn’t mind partaking in the planning process with you. As for the location we chose a area in downtown Wilmington that had the city scape we were looking for but since we shot on Sunday the foot traffic was minimal which allowed us to work in peace without too many questions and onlookers. Overall both my team and I are incredibly happy about the end result from this shoot. With the planning, shopping and scouting it turned as planned.
Here’s a collage of a few of the shots I wish I could show you all the rest but since this was a project we wanted to push a tad farther. We’re all going to sit down and review the images and make the selections of what to display as a full body of work. But in the meantime here you go!
