The amount of work that goes into the production of a photo shoot is often completely unknown to the general public but is also the most important part of creating the magic that appears in the final images.
For instance, trying to light the enormous wigs in this series was a difficult task. Not only did we have to make sure to highlight the various textures that were integral to the creation for each of them, but their enormous size took several different approaches when it came to light set up. As well, the sheer weight of the wigs was so heavy on the models’ heads that members of the creative team had to stand behind them to help keep them upright. The average person wouldn’t normally think about these things just looking at the photos, but problems like this are quite typical.
NO MATTER HOW MUCH PLANNING GOES INTO A SHOOT TO MAKE SURE EVERYTHING IS RIGHT IN-CAMERA, SOME THINGS SIMPLY CANNOT BE ACCOUNTED FOR.
