I know, I know, I have neglected the blog and there are so many things to write about. So here we start from the first shoot we had this year (yes, it was in January, time flies). Alisa wanted something related to fashion, and we were in a rather surreal mood. So we decided to go for both things within the same shoot. First there was fun with throwing the red dress until we knew we had enough material to built a blooming rose, then crazy flower pants and at the end we tested Alisa’s balance for the dead Valley image. Not so bad beginning of the year I think…

Dresses, flower underwear,  and the headpiece are by Ewa Jobko, makeup is by Kasia Trela, thank you!

Our new dress (Phoenix) from wonderful designer Ewa Jobko has arrived so we decided to give it a go and try how it behaves during a photo-shoot. Our friend, Milo, let us use his to-be-rebuilt house as a location, and we spent a funny evening attaching a big flock of origami birds to the ceiling. The neighbours from the opposite building must have thought us completely mad. Especially that Marcin was very fussy and we repositioned many birds quite a few times before he was happy enough with the set-up. And so the next day Chloe did my hair, Kasia made her make-up magics and we had 2 or 3 hours of fun. Here is the first image from this day, “Birds of a feather”, and some warming-up snaps as well. More will come soon.

Our big thanks to Ewa, Milo, Chloe and Kasia

Six hours of throwing ice cold milk on Dita. Many hours of stitching the dress in Photoshop. Many hours of restarting Marcin’s Macbook which kept collapsing under a weight of so many layers opened. And here it is. A milk pin-up we were planning for so long after wonderful workshops with Jarek Wieczorkiewicz. It was a challenge but also a lot of fun.

Model: Dita

Make-up artist: Sorell Bown

Hair: Kamil Kucharewicz

And here are some backstage images to show you how it was done. Every bit of this dress was actually photographed, nothing was made in Photoshop, we only stitched the splashes together.

Here are some images from our latest session with Dita.  We had a great fun making these images!

I wish I could say no beetles were harmed during this shoot, but actually one of them lost two of his legs :-(. Fortunately they were shipped to us already dead so it makes no difference any more, does it?
