Continuing with the Wanderlust series, I did a shoot for Johnson High School senior Madison Keller last weekend that was way out of the norm for me! Instead of my usual on-location set, we did the entire session at a studio with full lighting, backdrops and lots of laughs.
Maddy and I collaborated for months on this idea: her first thought was to wear a gorgeous dress that she found on Pinterest, and I even went so far as to meet with a dress designer to see about having one created for us. Then I had the idea that I wanted to do some sessions that are inspired by movies, books or videos that we love, so we threw around a bunch of different ideas. Finally Maddy mentioned how much she loves Selena Gomez' video "Good For You" and BAM! we knew that was it!
The premise behind the shoot is: "if we shot the video using Maddy as the talent and the skill and equipment that I have, what would it have looked like?" We picked two of the scenes from the video to shoot; the laying-on-the-floor scene and the stool-against-the wall scene, mostly because the props were minimal and the lighting looked fairly simple.
The shoot was challenging, but an absolute blast as well. I love how the images turned out; this is our take on the images from Selena Gomez' Good For You video, I hope you like them!
