I am so addicted to these shoots. I am begging Felix to do a workshop with me. The styling alone was enough to get me screaming like a 13 year old at a Justin Beiber concert. Ahhhhh Hollywood Glamour. So here’s how we did it.
We ordered our lights from Adorama rentals (amazing service) 3x Arri M18 Kit (1.8K HMI) with diffusion and 1x Profoto 8A Air 2400 pack with Profoto Pro Head mounted into a 5×4 soft box.
We used my favourite Oliphant Backdrop okay they are all my fav’s but the gold is definitely my NOW fav and a roll of dark grey and white seamless paper.
Styling was so easy finding matching outfits online came together beautifully. Surprisingly not many of the original icons were wearing that much makeup. It was all about the eyebrows and the lips. But of course the Hair is the real giveaway to this classic era. I think my two funniest moments were Susan hates breakfast at Tiffany’s and thats the look I wanted her to play and Brooke does not wear makeup and Marlene was the most made up oh and of course the you will not eat/you will sit/you will not breath in the corset I had to wear to be Liz ha
Play shoots invigorate and I learned something so cool this day.
