All Photos by Evan and Opal Wells
This is Evan and mines first attempt at working together with a model. I was very pleased with how well the photos came out. Please don’t hesitate to give any constructive criticism; as beginners any advice would be greatly appreciated.
The photos were taken about a month ago in an alley in downtown Bloomington, Indiana. Makeup artist Kinsey Clark was hired to help us accomplish a 1920’s flapper girl look. The styling was done by me out of my personal collection- I chose a loose fitting fringe tiered dress from H&M, vintage heels, and bold accessories I imaged would photograph well. Originally the plan was for Evan and I to each take photos; however, the lighting was so low and I am not yet comfortable with all of the manual settings. Evan took most of the photos while I choreographed the model. Eventually I worked up the confidence to frame up a few shots. I was surprised with how much more difficult shooting in the dark (with no flash) was than in the day- even when you are using a tripod. I still have so much to learn! Next set we do will defiantly be during the day so I can be more involved. All around it was a great experience for all parties involved.
