'Milk Shoot'

Tue 30 Apr 2019 - 9:30 AM

A few weeks ago I was able to attend a spontaneous shoot where the models who were willing to do it got an individual time slot and got to pose in a bath of heated milk in different outfits and themed costumes. I think that the the shoot was really fun and creative and definitely different to most of the stuff that we normally do and I feel very lucky that I was able to attend. The ideas that I came up with were very different to each other, one was quite a feminine look where I posed with a red rose and red lipstick to match and the other was in the direction of a commercial shot with a evil queen style twist, I got my inspiration from two different things, one was a perfume advert on tv and the other was a scene out of Snow White and the Huntsman where the evil queen comes out of a bath filled with something that looks like milk. In the commercial style shots that I did I had gold makeup on and I was wearing my sisters black, red and gold prom tiara whilst holding a golden perfume bottle, I think both looks, especially the commercial one worked really well with the 'Milk Shoot' and I got some really good and very different shots.

Recent ‘Milk Shoot’

Tue 23 Apr 2019 - 7:23 PM

Recently one of our best models Charlotte Brown suggested the idea of doing a ‘milk shoot’ where models would lie down in a large ‘bath’ and pose with various props. Although the initial thought of this idea was strange, many of our models came up with very creative ideas such as applying fake tattoos and posing with flowers, and some took a commercial route and posed with perfume and even cereal! The outcome of this shoot was amazing and the photos really showcased the models ability and creativity. I took part in this shoot and made the most out of my turn by creating two very different styles, one being a spring/ pretty headshot with fake butterflies floating around me, and the other being very dark and gothic with a fake arm tattoo to contrast with the milk background. This shoot was a great success and a very good idea from charlotte, who also took park and produced some amazing pictures.
