Project

Complementary colors

What are you most proud of? I'm most proud of the lighting, which is silly because I had no control over that whatsoever. But a storm rolled in off the lake as we were shooting and we just kept adjusting the camera settings for the new lighting and we got some really good photos out of it! What advice would you give someone starting this project? Definately play around with color. Be prepared to go through a bunch of wardrobe changes to find just the right combination. And don't forget about accessories. In most of these shots you can't see the garnet in the earrings, but when they catch the light the red and pick work together with the green sweater!
