This cosplay of Sabrina from The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina was such a great way to spend the afternoon!

This wedding dress from the photography wardrobe was perfect for a Dark Baptism and was a great fit for a Sabrina Spellman cosplay

This shoot was also the perfect time to shoot with the old Nikon DSLR and test out the studio’s new SD card reader, which transfers raw images from the DSLR right into my phone for editing!

What photo shoots have you been dying to do lately? Any cosplays in the works?

Floral Photoshoot | Blue Fantasy

Makeup is a very important part of portrait photography, especially boudoir and glamour photography.

Not that a model must have a full face of makeup on, but that the makeup can make or break a shoot, as well as have shooting concerns.

📷

This eye makeup is very bold, and needed a light, bright set. When shot against darker backdrops, the makeup looked much more harsh, as did the photos themselves.

Mysterious moody portrait photography

Harsher makeup can still be beautiful, it just may not fit the theme of the photoshoot.

Darker makeup needs a brighter light/set to cut harshness.

An overdrawn lip may look disproportionate at certain angles and perfect at others.

False lashes may only show up in certain angles.

As we do our makeup or provide direction for the makeup artist, we must keep in mind the set, the theme, the mood, and the angles.

Horned Headband Tutorial | Cosplay & Costuming

How to make a horned headband. Subscribe to BlessedShadows on YouTube!

Take thin Horns, add some sturdiness, and attach to a headband in this tutorial for a devilishly good costume. 😈


Tools and supplies:
-Horns
-Felt
-Scissors
-E6000
-Extra, used shopping bags
-Boxcutter
-Hot glue gun and hot glue sticks *be careful not to melt the E6000.

Directions 🦇😈

  1. Cut and remove elastic if there is any. You can save these for later projects.
  2. Note how thin the horns may be. If they’re really flimsy, let’s fix that!
  3. Use a box cutter or similar blade to carefully cut an X on the bottom of the horns.
  4. Cut old, extra shipping bags into 3rds or smaller, and begin stuffing inside the horns. Full all the way to the top so the horns will be firm evenly.
  5. Cut circles out of felt and adhere with E6000. I’ve had little luck with rubber and hot glue, especially when it comes to the task of joining.
  6. Let dry.
  7. Use hot glue to adhere horns to the proper/desired spot on the headband. Hold and let glue cool.
    Use E6000 instead if you’d prefer.
  8. You’re done!
    Add some extras to your headband if you wish, and go be your devilish self 😈

What’s your favorite way to source backdrops for your fantasy photography? This one is a ‘sigil’ floor mat that’s been framed by thrifted lace throws and scarves… not mention lighted by a few standard floor lamps from a department store.

It really can be that simple to create a thrifty, simple photoshoot that looks gorgeous!

This tarot-inspired photoshoot was the perfect opportunity to experiment with backdrop, framing, and implied movement, all while lying down in the studio.

When you’re not using a fast lens (or Burst mode on a camera phone), don’t have a lot of room and definitely don’t have someone to hold or toss fabric and hair to create movement, what do you do?

You lie down!

This backdrop is a fabric print of a forrest with a ribbon-wrapped hula hoop with me laying on top of it.

There are quite a few wrinkles, so I’m curious how this kind of shoot will look when done on the studio floor instead of a mattress.

 

The frame was ringed with black shawls and the hair was fluffed to give the impression of movement or weightlessness. Underwater shoots are so stunning when it comes to that graceful movement, but in studio, the best we can do sometimes is to lie down or jump in front of a fast lens.

 

I highly encourage you do some fantasy photoshoots lying down.  It can get some great lighting and some beautiful effects.

What have you been experimenting with in the photo studio?  How do you bring a little more magic to your fantasy photoshoots?
