kayla's 70s shoot : the digital part

I recently partnered up with friend and model Kayla Morgan to do a 70s-themed shoot.  We decided early on to shoot the bulk of it on 35mm format film, but decided to shoot a couple of images digitally as well.  While we wait to get the film developed, here's a sneak peek at some of the images we created and edited to look like old 70s fashion film.

We started out shooting in this gorgeous hydrangea bush in my front yard, playing with light-leaks and sun flares a bit and enjoying the floral-on-floral patterning of Kayla's awesome vintage dress

Kayla nailed the soft, sensuous 70s vibe!

We moved out to my in-laws' house in Mills River for the rest of the shoot.  I played more with faking some light-leaks and colour fading in these.  I'm really pleased with how they came out!

And of course, we couldn't end our day without doing a small tribute to Guy Bourdin!

nevermore editorial

For a long time, I have wanted to do an editorial shoot in a nest.  The idea started years ago and has been percolating in the back of my brain.  This year, I finally made it happen (with a lot of help!)  Cody helped me design and build the nest.  We chopped up an ugly bush in our back yard to build the base and get the basic shape.  Wild grape vines completed the outside. Once we had the nest, we just needed the perfect team of model and makeup artist. 

Kayla Morgan agreed to model, and Danielle Southcott graciously offered her makeup skills. 

Cody assisted with catch-lights, fog machine, and some very impressive umbrella skills.
