Shot in January 2017 at my home studio in Los Angeles, CA. with Bel Biv Devo station playing on Pandora radio. The inspiration for this picture came from five different photographs I found on Pinterest and Tumblr. I gave myself a $25.00 budget and we created a series of images, this is one.
Hasselblad H4D-50 80mm/ƒ/4.5/1/125s/ISO 50 wb: custom setting
Juliana also known as “The Macy’s Girl” is standing on a homemade wobbly apple box which is about 11 inches high. The hair/wig and mask both came from Amazon and the 15ft of fabric came from Jo-Ann Fabrics and Crafts.
2 Profoto D1 Air lights each with a 63×13 inch strip lights with grids. one placed on each side.
Savage Seamless Background Paper . Thunder Gray, I use this and the Fashion grey more than the others because it’s not too dark and it’s not too light.
Shooting tethered into Hasselblad’s Phocus software most of the post production started there. After rating the ones I wanted to keep, I brought the images into Photoshop for final tweaks. Covering body parts, dodging and burning and converting the final image into black and white.
