This was one of those shoots that I didn’t really have a plan other than to go into the Tuft Furniture store in Charlotte and see what cool chaise chairs and vintage pieces I could capture with model Diyasha Smith. The first thing that caught my eye was the worn and tattered door. She brought out the fur coat and everything fell in place. Big thanks to my Make-up artist Monique Stevens who also assisted with the video.
Photo Shoot & Fashion Show Tips
"As a photographer assisting or shooting, I have seen colorful nails ruin a photo or cause the photographer to avoid a shot all together because the model had fingernail polish that just threw everything off. Yes photoshop could probably correct the problem, but...you don't want to rely on that. Natural is always better unless your nail color is a planned part of the shoot/concept."
