Our college class were supposed to go to London today, but we got to the train station and every train to London was cancelled! Just our luck..
It turned out okay in the end though – i walked back to college and used the studio for the afternoon! I made the most of what i had, which was one dress, a piece of gold material i found in the cupboard, and a lot of hair..
Yep it was Erwin Blumenfeld’s Jan 1950 Vogue cover. I love that image.
My sister was supposed to be modelling for me but she missed her bus and forgot her phone and things got complicated (a story i shall save for another time). Luckily my best friend Rosie was in college though so she stepped in last moment! (Thankyou!) I did her make up and then some test shots on my D90 (one of which is above). And then, eventually, i shot a roll of film on the Mamiya. Can’t wait to get it developed!
Oh, and my set up was the same as Rankin used in his ‘Seven Photographs that changed fashion’ (minus Heidi Klum) –
Did a shoot with my little sister Janine today! It had a gothic theme and involved burning umbrellas (and accidently setting the floor on fire). Thanks go to Emily (older sister) for stamping out the flames. I’ve actually had the idea for this shoot in my head for a while but i only just found the perfect dress (charity shop £12.99!). I’ll post up the fire pictures once i’ve edited them – for now i’ll leave you with this portrait..
