Gretel Trapped in Dark Forest (portrait shoot)

I have a final coming up this friday for my editorial hair and make-up class.  My inspirations came from the dark forest and when I went shopping to find a top for the shoot I came across a dress that reminded my of the fairy tale Hansel and Gretel.  I could resist buying the dress and decided to incorporate the fairy tale dress and create my own version of a Dark, yet playful and innocent Gretel :) Here are a few of my inspiration pictures for that shoot…

Inspiring Fashion Stylist… Alex White

Alex White has got to be one of my favorite fashion stylist, if not favorite.  She has an amazing eye for color, style, and a way to capture a look and feeling.  When she left W magazine I was heart-broken :( I looked forward to seeing her editorials in the magazine every month. When I see her editorials now in other magazines, I can’t help but want to work harder on perfecting my craft, to get as good as she is. Here are a few of her editorials that I absolutely love…

1st editorial is called Last Exit to Brooklyn. Photographers were Mert Atlas & Marcus Piggot

2nd editorial is called Paper Bag Princess. Photographer: Craig McDean

3rd Editorial Against Nature  Photographed by Mert Atlas and Marcus Piggot

These are just a few of many fashion editorials she has styled. I hope you think they are as great as I do :)

Inspirations… Nature

Nature is one of the best places to get inspiration from. You can find some amazing color schemes, patterns, textures, and shapes.  Keep your eyes open and take pictures of things that inspire you, they can become useful in the future. The photos can also be great enough to frame and put around your place :) Here are some photos I have taken of elements in nature that have inspired me in some way…

Final Video of latest shoot…In Graveyard

Here is the final video of mine and Jeff’s last shoot. We wanted an all white color scheme, to portray an angelic look.  We also wanted a lot of textured fabrics to give the all white color scheme a little kick. We want you to think of an innocent  angelic young lady, yet feel the pain she has hidden inside her.  Check out the video…

You can also check out some of Jeff’s other videos just click here http://vimeo.com/diorable/videos

I’ll post the pictures of the photo shoot as soon as I receive them…
