This time were working with this local beauty Sarita Garza, we've shot Sarita numerous times and I always love the images. This time was no different, This was actually my first shoot with this backdrop and I was really excited to use it. I tried to hang them(2 different colors) from my DIY PVC backdrop that I use for my smaller paper drops, and it was to heavy so it kept falling over, So I just used the staple gun and put them on the wall. I can't tell you how useful that thing is!
For this first look I decided to use my tan backdrop it has really great texture but I'd never used it so I had no idea how it would look in photos but I think it came out pretty good, Maybe the texture is a bit distracting but that's an easy fix next time I decide to use it. Alayza created this cool fabric top out of colored cloth it was very high fashion feeling and I thought I needed more drama so I decided to go over to the black backdrop.
The interesting thing about this black backdrop is it's made out of the same material as the tan one, same amount of texture and everything but you can't see any of it. It turned out to be a good thing for this shoot, I liked the look of the solid black. The photos look completely different and the only thing I changed is the backdrop. It really made Sarita and the fabric grab your attention. I really love the textures in the fabric it almost looks like colored smoke.
Alayza was very determined to make this fabric look the way she envisioned it in her head, that didn't stop me from teasing her and Sarita about taking all day. I'm happy she stuck with it, it definitely paid off the fabric looked really great.
I like to take test photos while Alayza is putting on her final touches I get a lot of great candids, check out that smile!
This was another great shot with Sarita, she actually brought her little sister who I'm convinced is the first successful human clone they look just alike even though they are years apart crazy how that happens. I think my favorite thing about this shoot was watching Alayza curl Sarita's hair when she sat in the chair it almost went to the floor! But this was definitely a fun shoot and I'm looking forward to the next one with Sarita she's such a great model!
