My photography friend Kyla Fear Williams is always coming up with creative ideas for a shoot. She gravitates towards unique fashion and accessories and loves to play around with light, styling, and vision. She’s the mastermind behind the wildly popular (and internationally known) mask series and always seems to have something new in the works in her head.
She brought the awesome smoke bombs to our Santa Fe Art District film shoot, and based on both of our desires to do something even cooler with the smoke bombs, she invited me along to play on a chilly, but not terribly cold day in January. I’ll be showcasing the majority of the smoke bomb shots (which were mostly shot after dark) in the next post, but we decided to start early and play with the late-afternoon winter sun.
Elizabeth Marsh provided hair and make-up and the striking Emily modeled for us. The feather necklace was Kyla’s newest acquisition from the Kitty Mae Millinery going out of business sale.
I also want to take a quick minute to tag Totally Rad, whose set of film presets (Replichrome) has changed the way I approach editing over the last two months. They speed up my process and provide some seriously gorgeous color edits. The photos form this portion of the shoot were edited with the Fuji 400H and the Kodak B&W 400CN presets.
