This shoot is designed to emulate the siren scene from the movie "O Brother Where Art Thou." Female models should wear simple long, white(ish) dresses with light-colored undergarments. Hair and makeup should be minimal (i.e. roll out of bed and come!!) If there are any males interested in modeling for this, button-up gray/brown shirts (these can be old white shirts that have been mud stained) with overalls or suspenders are appropriate. A floppy cowboy hat wouldn't be out of question either! If anyone happens to have a prop beer jug, feel free to bring that as well!
Photographers, bring a medium and/or long lens for this shoot. If you're shooting from the bank, you might have to shoot across the river. We're waiting until July to help give the rains a chance to subside and let the river level go down a little. Hopefully we can get a nice sunny day! Do feel free to scope out the area ahead of time if you'd like. If you have a waterproof box, you might be interested in hiking through the stream over to the center, where there is a bit of an island, if you want to call it that! Like I said, you might want to scope out the place pre-shoot.
The shoot location is about a half-mile hike, most of which is paved, but the last 200 yards can get a little muddy. It isn't at all steep or difficult though. We can meet in the lot where non-resident cars have to stop, and drive equipment and people to the furthest point where cars can go. We'll be heading left on the Nakoa trail to point number 4 on the ranger map.
And if anyone has a different suggestion for location, let me know soon, and I'll scope it out to see if it fits my vision for the shoot. Also, does anyone happen to have a megaphone? With photographers potentially working so far away from the models, it might be nice to amplify voices for direction...? Or maybe even a walkie talkie set! lol
Here are a few photos for inspiration:
