when i saw this dress in my anthropology mailer, i went ooooohlala! i love stripes, they makes me think of all things summer. blue stripes make me think english, and red sends me to france.
the day we shot this session was anything but a summer feeling (french, english or otherwise) and it was alright because i loved what i saw once gabriella walked out into the fields. starting with an idea isn’t ever a bad thing, but keeping an open mind is always a better thing. of course, all i had was 15 minutes to make what i saw happen. she had ‘plans’ that night and this excersion was not part of it. but gabriella’s a sweetie and played along. ok, i thought…here we go. until, her phone alarm went off signaling the end of our session! no! 2 more minutes, a couple more shots, stop! hold on! where are you going! it hasn’t been 15 minutes already? has it?
i got out the lens baby…probably cost me 3 minutes, but i’m glad i did.
there she goes….done.
