Teresia and her alter ego, Graciously Morbid, have graced the Fleeting Glimpse Studios on more than one occasion. Channeling belly dancers, steampunk warriors, sword-wielding barbarians and others is one of her specialities.
I was stoked. It isn't often you are handed two primo concepts from the same great model. We began a correspondence in earnest to coordinate the session so that we would both get exactly what we desired.
Action requires space. In Minnesota, in January, space is tight because you are indoors. Though we headquartered at my Apple Valley studio, an ambitious set of poses and long swinging props, it is tough to keep from drifting off the black seamless!
The session used a Canon 5D MK II coupled to a 24-105 F4L. We lit the set with a quartet of Einstein 640 strobes with a variety of grids, soft boxes and bare bulbs in various combinations. The session was backed up by white and black seamless.
Including makeup and wardrobe changes, the session lasted nearly three and one half hours.
