I have wanted to use paint powder in a shoot for so long. The idea of plumes of colourful clouds was always a happy one! And as usual my brain didn't think of the mess it was going to make until after...
If you like our Facebook page you would have seen our awesome home studio - it's not perfect, but it really worked for this shoot! Anddd it's mostly portable!
Natalie was our model for the day and she is a dancer! She was so much fun to work with and so enthusiastic! It was a real team effort with Nick and I working together with the photos and lighting, Hattie, our make-up artist, also helped with the throwing of the paint powder!
I had an idea of six images going into the shoot, and to come out with images that kind of resembled what was in my head was pretty amazing!
I like working really hard on a few images rather than trying to go through millions of photos!
Here they are - please let us know what you think!
And here are a few we took after... (Nick thought it was a good idea for us to know what it felt like to have paint powder thrown at us...)
