Our lovely model, Jade, known also as Avant Garde, wanted a shoot with main theme related to chocolate. Now, if you know us you know how much we (especially Sylwia) like chocolate. So of course we said yes. It is double fun after all, you create funky images and then you can eat all your props. As we shoot around Easter time we decided to play with Easter eggs a little. And so for one of our images we created chocolate landscape (mostly Easter eggs and some cacao powder).
And then we decided to change Jade’s dress into liquid chocolate. Our first attempts were to do it entirely in Photoshop, but try as might, it did not look completely realistic when printed in A3 size. So we decided to recreate the dress from paper (actually we did separately skirt and different bits of the top part ), pour some hot chocolate over it, take photographs and replace the real dress with a chocolate one. Few bars of Galaxy, many packages of chocolate fudge and one onion (do not even ask!) later we were ready to stitch the dress in Photoshop and….voila. Here it is. Somewhat Avant Garde, don’t you think?
