SWAP 2007 - Part Eleven
Photo Shoot Day!
While I'm not going to show you all the final photos just yet, I will show you a few from this afternoon's photo shoot. The final pictures will be posted on Tuesday (SWAP day, remember?).
I convert my studio for a photo shoot by rolling the large table away from the design wall, and out of the way or removing it from the sewing area. The blinds are completely up for natural sunlight if I'm shooting during the day (which I prefer). The design wall is already white, but I drape it and the floor with a black or dark brown fabric if I'm shooting light colored garments. For this session, I decided to stick with the white even though the garments are light. For some reason, photographing my daughter in her outfits against the black seemed weird. I guess the human element had something to do with it. For the outfit's final group shot, I did photograph them against black, so they stand out better - this is the outfit's group shot.
Below are some photos from the photo shoot, all of which won't make the final cut for submission to Julie at Timmel Fabrics.
All she needs here is an umbella and the right suit and she'd look like those late 1940's/early 1950's images on the pattern envelopes:
She's laughing here because I told her not to stand like a stork. Her brother thought I said "dork", which made it even funnier.
Not sure what's going on in this pose - maybe she's learning to walk like an Egyptian? (Wow, that's showing my age - remember that song and dance?)
Max wandered into the studio during the shoot, so she had to pick him up for a few photos:
Parting Shot: Another picture of Max and my daughter. I think he's trying to say "Help me, please, somebody help me!"
I'm still beading and experimenting with the borders on the pink side. I'll post tomorrow on how I did the embellishments on the body of the pink side. Looks like tonight will be a night of beading in front of the TV.
