Recently I have become a big fan of hats. I started to wear them primarily to protect my face from the UV, but I have discovered that they can give the outfit whole new attitude. I see that I will have to reevaluate my wardrobe and I am only happy to do it.
Of course I had to do a photo shoot, and as usual, I wanted it to be high drama. I was amazed with beautiful shadows the hats created. In result the photo shoot has become not about the hat, but about the shadows. I styled the looks to look luxurious. I love the saying “More is more”, more contrast, more drama, more mystery. The gold orchids on the black hat are fabric flowers and they were pink before I spray painted them gold. They totally transformed the hat and the whole look.
Simple two light setup: beauty dish and long softbox, and voila!
Photography, styling, makeup, modelling – all truly yours.
