you wouldn´t believe how much work goes into organizing a shooting.
First of all there is a main idea that comes to my mind. It can happen on any occassion. While I flip through a book, when I go shopping and see a cool prop, when I take a walk, when I drive to work. Anytime.
Step 2 is to find a photographer that finds the idea interesting and that I think to be right for the project. We brainstorm, he adds his ideas to mine and the real work begins.
I go through all my stuff and see what I actually have and test-wear it to see wether it still fits and has not gotten too big or small meanwhile. Than I start to think about all the things that I´ll need to give it that little extra-touch. The props, acessoires, additional clothes, will I need jewelry? It results in hours of browsing ebay and stores to find the best bargains and maybe even more inspirations. Some things I´ll even make myself if needed.
When I do something unusual for me I´ll also have to do a test-make up to see wether it will actually look good and to see how I manage and some playing with the hair. Sometimes I even research the internet to collect inspiration for hair make up and poses.
You see there is a lot to do. I don´t just go to a shooting and smile into the camera ;-) And right now I´m in the middle of organizing another fun and partially unusual shooting. You´ll be very surprised... I can´t tell you how long you´ll have to wait though as we still have to fix a date. But you still have the housewife-photos to look forward to at the moment...
