It takes a real mess to make one beautiful image.
I thought I would show you a little behind the scenes action from our Dunes and Duchess tabletop shoot we did right before Christmas. So here’s what a real photo shoot looks like: messy, disorganized, creative, and fun.
The shoot started off with me insisting we take pictures of the Christmas cookies we’d decorated with the boys. Dunes (a.k.a. Michael Partenio) arranged things on the table so they’d look just right for the camera. I featured one of the finished images in my post last week. Click here to see.
As we left cookies and moved on to Dunes and Duchess, Dunes insisted we needed a Manhattan (for photographic effects, it was after all, only noon).
And then of course we broke it all down and did New Year’s.
Ta-da! The result! Dunes just happened to have the hat left over from year’s past in his office. It really made the shot!
