Meetup fun - Steampunk, peacock & sugar skull (pic heavy)

Post by CATZ on Fri Nov 09, 2012 6:04 pm

Some photographers get together once a month in my area to take photos of aspiring models, share ideas and build their portfolios. I was invited 1st last year for their Halloween shoot. I arranged the one this year at a Heritage House and ended up with some cool shots of my work Smile

Steampunk: (incorporated a heart shaped clockwork design)





Peacock:
(In progress...) I used a lot of feathers for the headpiece!



Sugar skull:

Thanks gals! It's nice to get your feed back Smile Sometimes I feel a little discouraged and wonder if I should bother painting anymore. My husband wants me to quit and it's not really worth what folks are willing to pay around here.

Sessions like this are stimulating and let me feel a little more creative than I do in a festival environment pumping out 2-3 minute designs. I've got a photographer begging me to do a black light design with him and I hope to get to that soon. I've got the design already figured out. He's got 7 models to choose from too that really want to do it.

I really recommend finding a photography group in your area. Great photos are more than a good camera and good lighting. Besides all those buttons are so damn confusing! LOL

I have a local photographer friend and was wondering about having some pro shots done. Guess I need to bite the bullet and do it.

Thanks gals Smile

I picked up a top hat and steampunk style manacle after Halloween, so I can do another shoot, but include a man this time. Just need to find the right guy and cool costume for him. Maybe a bald guy so I can paint a lot of the side of his head.

The dress on my steampunk gal is actually my traditional 'bunad' costume from Norway. I made it back when I lived there in the 90's. It's from the 1800's time period so I was really happy it worked out. Of course I usually wear a shirt with it and don't paint myself LOL This is what we call the 'hverdags bunad' or 'everyday' dress not the fancy 'festival' dress that is made of wool and has lots of embroidery on. Those take years to make and an expert hand. I started one, but have a long way to go yet. Every county in Norway has it's own special design and coordinating fabric. This is from the østfold area (Southeast of Oslo) where my father is from. You can only get that fabric in that area and only use it for the bunad costume.

This is me in front of the Castle in Oslo on Carl Johan's Gate 17th of May '94 (our national holiday). Eek! That's almost 20 years ago!!
