Keira Lavelle arrived in the Spring armed with a suitcase of outfits and a strange bag of green tea, having worked with her before I knew the score…..’put the kettle on whilst I do my make up’
I jest of course but the green tea is real and probably some kind of alien substance, however I’m always up for a cuppa to get things going. As for shootiness I had bought a couple of things from a vintage clothes fare, however we started of with some simple nude work. The previous time we had worked with a white backdrop, this time it was black as the ace of spades, or as black as burnt toast, or as bla….you get the picture (or will do).
Then the red kimono…..
And some more ideas use the same kimono as a backdrop…….or floordrop as it were.
Then another piece I bought at the fare…a dark blue jacket…
Then another piece my wife bought….an Astrican coat, tricky lighting as the coat was as black as a….well I’ve been through that already…
Oh and some lingerie…..lingerie is something I lack on my port so it was good to get some class images done.
Some creative lighting in software for these images….
Some nudes on the couch to finish the shoot off.
This was one of those shoots where everything worked well…..and I must have to give credit where its due, mostly its down to Keira’s modelling ability and posing, it’s expressive and dramatic, sensual and raunchy without being over the top. It has an edginess that’s a great bonus in a model, she can pull it back if needed but deliver if required. Highly recommended and I hope we do a lot more shoots together, lovely person to work with and good company too. This combination makes an ideal team to produce something special, already looking forward to our next shoot.
