Fashion Photography | Flour Everywhere!

The best thing about fashion or editorial type of photography... There are no rules and you can do whatever you want to create an image. Use all your imagination and creativity to create something that will make people go WOW. That is the best part of it! We have had the idea of throwing flour or powder around for a while and wanted to finally get it in a shoot. It was a DISASTER of a mess, but in the end we had some amazing images that we could work with.

Check out some of the great things that we were able to make.

We placed flour in the hair of our model and asked her to shake it off. It created a huge dust cloud.

This next image had the inspiration of ballet from it and it almost looks like she has wings. We asked her to let go off the powder and throw her hands in the air to see what we would create.

We threw flour from behind to create this image.

To start out the day, we wanted to use the umbrella in our image. We wanted to toss the flour at the top of the umbrella and let it come down off the side. This was the toughest image to create. After several shots we were able to create this shot.

Lastly, we put this shot together.

This photoshoot was a mess, but at the end of the day we created some images that will stand out. It was fun to create the mess and it was fun to create some outstanding images.

We can't wait to do our next fashion photography style shoot and create some fantastic images. We are always open for suggestions on what you may think. Suggestions?
