Phew! Fashion photography is fast, furious, fun and finished!

After weeks of planning, the Urban Bridal Fashion Infusion sessions have wrapped up. I’m exhilarated and exhausted. Day One I woke up at 4AM, and left my studio at 11:30PM only to rise again at 5AM finishing Day Two at 10:30PM.
Now we have many thousands of images to edit and post process.
I have learned so much from this elaborate production. When time is of the essence, experience is critical. A good stylist makes the difference in attention to attire details and successful accessorizing; not just how outfits fit, but how they hang, flow and shimmer during shooting. Models who need little direction, and who are aware of their best angles, expressions and postures vastly increase the successful image to time ratio. Hair and makeup can make or break an entire set up, no matter how wonderful other talent is.
Most of all, I learned all over again how much I value Jane Patterson, who continually comes up with ways to be helpful, even when I don’t need help. When I DO need help, her Can-Do attitude is calming, and her problem solving abilities glorify her enormous IQ. Let’s see if I can figure out how to keep her around the studio forever. Jane STRONGLY suggests these fashion marathons should only happen once each year. Now that’s wisdom!
