Would I lie to you?

So yes I’m still talking about our shoot with Verity and Stevie English for the Hair Expo.   I’ve got a few more behind the scenes to show you.

This shoot was mental, The Orchard Studio was pumping as Annie Lennox belted out “Would I Lie to You” from the stereo. We had a film crew shooting as well as the stills Connie Moran and myself were capturing, so the song needed to be playing all day so the timing for the film was perfect. The concept was all about movement, mood and attitude. There was certainly a lot of that and it was contagious.  The mood for outfits on the models was glitter and shine, with them constantly dancing and snaking all over the floor of a black elevated stage set built in the studio.

The brief for lighting was hard and contrasting, the end effect needed to have a  monochromatic and metallic glowing look. We needed to light with continuous light so the videographers could work alongside us.  We used a beauty dish as front light with a profoto ProDaylight Metal Halide head, Kino Flo style fluoro rim lights behind, Dedo spots behind, and also had a flash head firing into lens from the background creating flare for effect.

All the six models did brilliantly. And of course the Team English stylists and creative director Verity herself were all (in Verity’ speak):  F^*@%)N AMAZING !!  We couldn’t agree more!

Behind the scenes images thanks to Connie Moran and Angela Mushenko.
