usually I have my Making off videos finished before I even get the first picture from a photoshooting back..... But than it was unusual conditions...
Yesterday Hady called me because a model cancelled a shooting with her. It was supposed to be in a castle and so she looked for a substitute. I said "HELL YES" as we wanted to shoot anyway (however we planned a outdoor shooting and the weather gods were against us). So I spend to rest of yesterday trying a new make up (I immediately KNEW I needed something artificial and doll-like, eventhough Hady made no specific demands which look I should go for - she told me to surprise her), packing stuff and preparing for the shooting.
This morning I got up reaaaaaally early, put on the make up and off I drove to Cologne where Hady picked me up to drive to Schloss Auel. Iam a history nerd. I´m not kidding. As a child I wanted to grow up to dig for lost cities, bones and treasures. Well, nowadays I dig for vintage clothes and funny things. So off course I informed myself and found out that even Napoleon stayed at this castle once! And so we went to see his room (and shot in Napoleons bathtube.... We´ll see how those turn out). To our surprise the room and the bed were TINY. Like.... Half of my apartment. 15 squaremeters maybe? I laid down on his bed to see what it must feel like to be Napoleon and it seems his ghost liked it as it opened a wardrobe door all by itself when we shot in another room later.
Anyway.... Here are the first pics from this shooting :-)
I can´t decide wether I like the colour or the black and white version better?!
