I was looking for to have a versatile and creative photography session with one of the most talented person at my Seven Sisters studio last week. Zoe has so many characters, she is a cellist, performer, composer, media commentator and educator. If you are up for a fun, musical cabaret show, visit her website to check the dates and watch her to play : http ://zoemartlew.com/
As I always, I discussed her ideas over the phone before the session. This allows me to see clearly, work on ideas, prepare and estimate the session. She wanted some fun cabaret, some cello and a headshot image.
The day had come, I was already prepared. I got my 3 lights set up to start with the funky cabaret shots. I knew my magenta and blue colour galed lights would work for Zoe. This gave the desired feel and atmosphere.
And.…here is may favorite part. Zoe wanted to have some cello promo shots but not like the other “boring” ones like 2 millions already been taken, she wanted some unique ones. So it got me thinking and I suggested her, just relax on the floor. LOL
After 5 hours ‘cruelness’ it’s fun time now !
