Jess is one of the most creative models I’ve worked with, which always makes for a great day’s shooting. It’s hard not to pick up the energy of the people around you, so if a model understands the process and is happy to be patient while you’re fiddling about trying to get a great photo, it really helps.
Things I learned from this shoot :-
1) Paying homage to great photos, then putting your own twist on it, helps you get something different (we used a Kate Moss pic with a spiky helmet)
2) Oiling a model up & spraying water on her makes the skin look great in photos. No I don’t need anyone to do it for me 🙂
3) Lens flare can look cool if used right.
