1950s Crime Scene

March 13, 2013  •  Leave a Comment

I've been wanting to a 1950s crime scene shoot for a while now.  I love the LA Noir look.  I had the opportunity to make that shoot a reality this past year.  After quite a bit of planning I had the opportunity of working with a wonderful team:

Models:  Amber, Felina Vie, and Joseph

Jewelry Designer:  Ceci of Ceci Punch Designs

Stylist:  Angela Coco

Make-up Artist:  Anabel of ADC Makeup Artistry

Photography:  By me!

 

Story:  Consequences of being the other woman

 

Process:  This was a fun shoot!  My inspiration for this shoot actually came from the location itself.  After driving around one evening in Santee, I saw a streetlight lighting a 1970s car near this wooden fence just right.  In that moment I envisioned an old 1950s shoot with a classic car; photographing someone's shadow against the wooden fence.  After coming up with a storyline, coordinating with  models, make-up artist, stylist, and an awesome jewelry designer we were able to make this photoshoot happen!  

You'd be surprised how much joking around we were all doing during the photoshoot.  We got lots of passerby's asking if Amber (model in white) was okay (particularly when she was laying on the ground pretending to be dead).  We eventually got interrupted by a nearby resident who asked us for permits (probably thinking we were up to no good).  She even called the police to report us.  The police officer was really nice and let us finish up our shoot (letting the neighbor know we weren't breaking any laws).  This was a truly memorable photoshoot, and I am ecstatic with the outcome!  What do you think?
