Forest God Fantasy Photoshoot | Doing Two Photoshoots in One

Fantasy photography cosplay of an androgynous forest king

This fantasy photoshoot of a forest king came out absolutely beautiful!

Get your own headdress in the BlessedShadows Etsy shop! They’re perfect for any photoshoot, boudoir session or fantasy wedding.

This shoot was such a blast, and is SFW so I get to share the whole set!

Two Photoshoots in One

To maximize your lighting setup and time in the studio, consider doing two photoshoots in one.

Start with the simpler set, simpler hair and simpler makeup. The second shoot should have the more elaborate makeup.

Remember that it’s easier to build than to remove.

This strategy works even faster when the two shoots use the same lighting setup and backdrop, but of course feel free to switch it up between photoshoots.

Have you ever done 2+ shoots at once? What looks can you think of that would work well being shot on the same day? What shoot looks are complementary?

Can you guess what the second set in this double shoot was?

Bettie Page Inspired Boudoir Photoshoot | Artist Burnout

Artist burnout is real.

And to be honest, sometimes our response is to work even harder.

Take time to rest.

And when you start making art again, try something different.

Slightly new, or wildly different from the art you usually create.

Try a new technique, a different strategy, use different tools. Get your heart excited again.

How do you bounce back after creative burnout?

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!
