Beautiful harness by Charlie’s Revamps.

 

This sultry red and gold shoot was such a glamorous blast!

With the floral headdress from the Blessed Shadows Shop and this chain harness from Charlie’s Revamps coming together so perfectly with the backdrop and faux floral, this was a joy to photograph.

This backdrop is one of my favorites, a thrifted blanket that’s quite literally a bed of flowers.

These 1/2-1/2 shoots, where half the photoshoot is taken with an iPod and the other half is photographed with a DSLR have been wonderful.  These photo sessions have given an opportunity to better utilize the studio space (with the bed serving as a second backdrop) as well as practice with different equipment.

Headdresses and couture like these red floral horns and this lace couture top are available in the Blessed Shadows shop!

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!

So much has changed here in the studio.  Not only in workflow and equipment changes, but how I’ve learned to see myself and my work.

I have found self-portraiture as a way to learn self-love.  Not only has it helped me with my dysphoria, it’s allowed me to learn to see myself as a piece of art.  It’s helped me better comes to terms with the skin I’ve been given.

Along with the grander scheme of not feeling at home in my body, I’m no longer so embarrassed by my hands.  My hands are often a very bright red, presumably because of a thyroid issue and my very low blood pressure.  It’s been a pain to edit out or otherwise try to prevent, but I’ve learned to accept that that’s just how they are.

Instead of seeing an embarrassing bright red, I see it as a blush that fits well with my style of portraiture, especially in this photoset.

Self-portrature can help us to not only learn about who we are, but how we are all pieces of artwork.

Perfectly imperfect.

Gorgeous portraits come from each setup, and it’s been a joy to continue practicing without entirely taking over the studio.
