This shoot was inspired by my Dynamic Abstract series. I showed up early to the shoot and talked with Greg, gave him a few concept ideas. He told me to do what I feel. This reminded me of this series of paintings that I am working on called “Dynamic Abstract” it is a style that ties cityscapes and brightly colored patterns and designs. the finished results looks like the models walked out of one of my paintings. Great job by models De’Shaun Lanieaaa and Shalie.
In this body paint shoot I used design elements like circles and lines. I added some grunge effects, blends and drips. I used a primarily warm palette with greys to offset them and added some metallics for pop. I also experimented with masking and removing areas of paint to create designs. I really like the colored sheer fabric, smoke and lighting that Greg used to make the pictures look amazing. Andi was a pleasure to work with and killed her poses.
