We frequently test concepts that are related to requests from clients and ideas we have for future shoots. We have a commercial client who wants to explore using paint as part of an upcoming shoot. In order to practice timing, quantity, angles, lighting and much more, we made a model call so we could test the concept.
So, on an afternoon, in a field, three friends from a local high school answered the call and showed up in black (as requested) to spend an hour or so indulging the concept.
NOTE: The first six images are from the dry paint shoot. After I’d gotten what I needed for the tests, the girls brought out liquid paints that they provided. Hence the remainder of the images.
NOTE (AGAIN): We have since scheduled TWO family portrait sessions that involve paint in some way. We are happy to create a session for you that involves paint and painting. We use only non-toxic paint in safe situations. Schedule yours now before it gets too cold! Check us out on our site.
The photo above was the last of my tests. The girls brought their own liquid paint and started… well… flinging it at each other. The lights were still on, the camera still had plenty of images available, and there was time. So, I kept shooting. I did re-position some equipment to protect it (which did no good), but the remainder of these images are without direction… just… messy.
