I forgot why exactly I wanted to do such a shoot but it may have been the fact that I’ve been shooting jewelry and accessories for too long but I never really shot them with a human being. IDK. It could be that or it could be the fact that watch ads just look really cool.
So I set something up based on these pics I found of the internet:
Cast and Crew
Model: Bonni Mircovich – Otto Models
MUA: Karissa Lorinne
Shot at: Farm 39 Studios, Huntington Beach
Used this lighting setup:
And came up with something like these right out of the camera (ok, fine, + a few counts of definition and vibrance from Aperture 2):
Good job, ya’ll. Good job.
BTW, you like my stand-in? I’m quite proud of that, I must say. I looked around for something that resembles a human head and that the closest thing I found, okay. Don’t be hatin now. =)
Oh and Farm 39 studios is cool. It feels like a real studio. It’s just comfortable shooting there. Well it is a real studio…not something else converted to a studio.
Oh and this shoot is semi-dedicated to my brother who is an avid tennis guy. For real, Kevin. For real.
