We are starting a new series on Seniorologie for the next few weeks that shows off the beautiful images captured by senior photographers during a senior rep or model shoot. Senior Rep shoots can be one big shoot with all your models or individuals of each model. Either way, the photos submitted by senior photographers across the country are all inspirational!
Today’s inspiration comes from Brittany Salay of Brittany Lauren Photography. Brittany won a seat to the Seniorologie Tour Texas and I have loved watching her continue to grow in her photography business.
Brittany’s rep shoot was a concept taken from my all time favorite movie, The Wizard of Oz! What a creative way to incorporate a theme! These images capture the theme without being completely literal and I absolutely love that. The way Brittany portrayed each major character from the movie using today’s fashions and modern posing is brilliant! Check out what Brittany had to say about the shoot, how she came up with the idea and how her reps/models participate in her rep program. Thanks for sharing Brittany!!
I love that each Senior has a different look but together they tell a story that everyone recognizes.
In a family friend’s property. She has large fields we had several setups in. It rained ALL day so luckily she has a small hay bail barn we shot in waiting for the rain to break. We only had a 45 minute window to shoot in the field with 4 different setups.
Did you collaborate with this senior to come up with the clothing and/or concept for this shoot?
I created a look book with outfits and accessories for each Model and had them send pictures of things in their closets that might work. I then contacted a great local upscale consignment boutique to help bring each look together. I also made the tulle skirt for the Scarecrow look!
What camera, lens or other equipment was used for this shoot?
Canon 5d Mark iii
What time of day were these taken?
Can you share any post-processing techniques used when editing this session?
I do minor corrections in Camera Raw and run my favorite Paint the Moon action.
