Down on the street

clock April 26, 2012 17:34 by author Amber

My work takes me on some incredible journeys working with lovely and talented people. I have long enjoyed working with performers, whether they are actors on the stage and screen or dancers who create art through motion. This last Monday, I was fortunate enough to work with a rising starlet of the Seattle burlesque scene, Miss Candy Apples on a flyer for an upcoming show in Belltown. Here are some photos from that shoot to whet your apetite.

I had so much fun shooting Whisper De Corvo, a rising star in the Seattle burlesque scene, and Miss Velvet Ice, a living legend of burlesque. We were shooting poster photos for an upcoming burlesque down in the alleys of Pioneer Square, an section of town with amazing architecture.

Here's a tease from the shoot.

Tight turn around times can be very hard, especially when you're looking for that perfect shot. But the pressure can be very can be very rewarding. Take this one, for instance, where Miss Vixen Valentine, a local burlesque performer and producer who needed a show flier on very short notice for Puttin' on the Ritz.

The model is Eva Harlowe, stage kitten and purveyor of the pick up arts. That is a fancy way of saying she picks up the discarded items while entertaining the audience at the same time.

Makeup by Miss Vixen Valentine. Hair by Beatrice Belladonna.

Technical bits: F/2.8 at 50mm, 1/100th of a second, two strobe set up. SB-800 at 1/64 power on a silver fill umbrella with an SB-600 and a white shoot trhough umbrella against a focus gray (60%) background.

Total time from appointment to flier: 94 minutes.
