I was tidying up my Lightroom catalogue a couple of weeks ago and stumbled across these forgotten photographs of model Julianne from our recent Ei8ht magazine fashion shoot at the dusitD2 Baraquda property in Pattaya.
No photographs from this series were published in the Eight magazine fashion spread, as the art director didn't feel that the dress fit with the rest of the shoot's "colour blocking" wardrobe styling. However, the stylist loved the dress and asked me to shoot a few quick frames just for fun.
I agreed and we walked outside to find an interesting corner to make some fast photographs. This small shrine sat off in the corner of the hotel parking lot, and we agreed that the combined colours of the dress, the model's hair and the shrine complimented one another well. Although we didn't have any lighting set-up (or even a reflector at hand), the stylist and I gave Julianne a bit of direction, and I started banging off some frames.
I made just over 20 photographs in those few moments; these are three of them. I love finding hidden gems like these.
