the photographer's shadow: casted it myself
English Text - by Marina Hermanovna
These pictures are just a starter for my upcoming interview with fashion designer and muse Constance Astbury.
During my stay in Los Angeles we shot a fashion editorial in her neighbour's flat, starring Constance as a fairly crazy lady in a whole lot of mess.
The shooting has been difficult, to say the least.
I had very little light to work with as I could not bring my lighting equipment and I'd rather shoot with natural light than using a cobrasnake flash.
Not only Flash Packs cost like a sports' motorbike and weigh like a 9 years old, but these bulky batteries get inevitably mistaken for bombs during X-ray inpections at the airport.
Did I mention that we had no makeup artist, no hairstylist, no assistants, no styling, no time at all?
Because of course we didn't.
Nevertheless we took many pictures I can't wait to show you guys... hopefully you'll go easy on my first interview as well, as I am not a journalist by any means.
