Did you know there are places right in the Valley, in Phoenix, AZ that don't even resemble a dessert? Although the one thing that still gives any place place up in AZ is the heat! :-)
Look at some of these pics from a recent shoot. I think they give an air of 'tropical paradise' ...
Anyway we wondered around in Phoenix to scout for a nice backdrop to shoot some simple fashion layouts and these are some of the photos we came up. I worked with a local model Shannon who mainly focuses on health and fitness, lifestyle type of work. We had great collaboration from Lenea, a local MUA that provided assistance and coverage for the shoot in terms of anything we threw at her.. she was awesome! and also kept the Make up and Hair working for the concepts we were developing.
And then to contrast the look with something more AZ like .. Shannon shows us a more edgy fashion using a more typical backdrop in Phoenix on a 103 degree day. Amazingly our MUA Lenea was able to make miracles with the Make Up as the heat was challenging us all during the shoot (Thanks Lenea!).
The last photo doesn't look like 103 degrees.... well, it wasn't any more. It was at this time when the temp dropped incredibly fast. And in less than a one hour span the drop was significant. From 103 to 90, and you can feel it.! :-)
Hope you like the blog so far. I need more comments so I make sure to be striking some interest in these posts. Let me know.
Keeping it real!
