Step proper up! Welcome to the Darkish Carnival! I really like creating themes for my photoshoots. I’ve shot previous 80’s film themes to over-the-top sweet rainbow dolls.
When I’m planning a shoot, location is so essential. For this one, I wished to search out an previous deserted space with a forgotten look. I knew I wished to shoot within the river with a throne and to search out an previous tunnel or bridge.
After hours of driving round, my husband and I discovered a stretch of nation backroad with a graffiti-covered tunnel bridge, a creek, and previous damaged down fences and surroundings.
I did not need this to be a ‘gory’ shoot. I wished it to be creepy however nonetheless stunning. I labored with my sister, The Head Mistress, for the headpieces. I wished them over the (large) prime, clearly.
She made a loopy carousel headpiece, a marionette prime hat with lights! And a fake hawk! I labored with a designer for the clothes and began looking for equipment and props.
Make-up took 2 hours, we made TikTok’s and took off. The shoot was about three hours. We shot till the sundown after which shot just a little longer.
