Fairy Fantasy Meetup
This is a Meetup I have wanted to do for years! It is not often that you have a chance to get work with models that have such great costuming and experience. If you have ever been to the Texas Renaissance Festival then you have an idea of what we will have there to work with. We will have fairies, a princess, and other woodland creatures. Your imagination is the only thing holding you back! If you are a Photoshop fan, as I am, this will be a fantastic opportunity! I plan on setting up a green screen as well at the park so that we can shoot the models and use them for compositing in other (or existing) photos as well. How great would it be to shrink down a fairy and put her on the petals of your favorite flower picture, sitting on a mushroom, or on a lily pad? If the park will let us, and I can find one, I want to have a horse there as well that we can put into the pictures.
As with the first Meetup, I will have a table and chairs for makeup as well as two 5 gal drink containers with water and tea. I will get there early again to get a pavilion if possible. The trails are walking trails and parking is only allowed in the parking lot. If you plan on bringing a lot of gear or a cooler with you the I would suggest also bringing a wagon to haul it around with you. Make sure that you have good walking shoes, sunscreen, bug spray, perhaps a folding chair, and you might want to bring bottled water to carry with you.
As the models confirm I will post pictures of them on the Meetup site in a gallery. Hopefully in their costumes so that you will be able to envision what pictures you might want to create with them. There is a cost to this Meetup but it all goes to the models. Their makeup, costuming, time and experience are worth it. You will walk away with some fantastic images I am sure! Payment will be collected via PayPal. Please RSVP early so that we can get a good head count.
