Couture Fashion! Photoshoot and wardrobe demo!

Hello!  I'm sorry I haven't been able to schedule anything since my trip to New Zealand and Australia.  As soon as I returned, my business was featured on Groupon for a boudoir special so I've been swamped through the holidays!

I have some AWESOME ideas for meetups this year so I'm excited to start off with a great one!
For those that are new or haven't attended one of my meetups, you're in for a treat.  I organize my meetups where it isn't Paparazzi style shooting.  At most you will be in a group of 3-4 photographers to 1 model.  There's nothing worse than going to a meetup and you are fighting other photographers for a shot.  I also guide and help throughout the shoot.  I expect you to know how to at least be able to change your camera settings but I will help with lighting, posing and how to create the look you are wanting to capture.

NOW FOR THE GOOD PART!!!I've been highly inspired lately by the works of Bambi Cantrell, Sue Bryce and Lindsay Adler.  Let me show you how you can separate yourself from other photographers by creating your own wardrobe with inexpensive materials.
This will be a 3-4 hour meetup so a lot of great information and photography will take place!

I will start with showing how to create dresses from cheap tulle and recycled newspaper.  If you want to bring your own materials and practice while I teach on a model, let me know and I'll tell you what to bring!

AS ALWAYS, ALL PHOTOGRAPHERS ATTENDING ARE REQUIRED TO UPLOAD AT LEAST 5 FULLY EDITED IMAGES TO THE SHARED DROPBOX FOLDER WITHIN 2 WEEKS OF THE SHOOT.  FAILURE TO DO SO WILL RESULT IN REMOVAL FROM THE GROUP.

Models Confirmed:

    Just a minute...are we making dresses or photographing them? I'm bringing a camera but not a pin cushion. And why am I the only guy taking this workshop?

    • Darci

      No Fred, I will be making the dresses then everyone will do a photoshoot. I have the option though to let me know if you want to follow along with me as I demonstrate on a model you could Crete your own dress but you would just have to bring your own materials.

      As you know, I have this macho image to uphold, so we'll just keep the "dressmaking" part a secret between you and me :).

    hi Darci - can you let me know what I need to bring for the dress portion - thanks

    February 20, 2013

    • Darci

      Kelly, it's not a requirement but if you want to make your own bring a bolt of tulle (at least 30 ft). I suggest a neutral color (black, grey) you can find it cheap online. You also need safety pins. If you want to do a newspaper dress just bring a large stack of newspapers and some duct tape.
