Behind the scenes of Megan Rizzo in her Fine Art Photography Studio

 

Are you interested in seeing how i create an image? Come behind the scenes of my Fine Art Photography Studio Here is a collage of how this image came together. I always have the end result in mind for weeks, sometimes months before i gather all the little elements for the shot to come to life.
This one i knew i wanted to be soft, white, and clean. Working with a 7 year old, you have to pick just the right mood for her 
1. want to be photographed, 
2. to have me paint her face,
3. to hop into a bath and lay very still

It was a challenge. She wanted to paint her face, then she wanted to play with all the pretty flowers swishing around in the bath....She also had trouble holding her head at just the right height with the water line, so we popped a white towel under her head like a pillow, then re-arranged the flowers zillion times.
It wasn't too long before she was well and truly 'over
it'. As i know i will need her for future images i was quick to say, "thats ok" and then i drained the bath and shot the flowers separately.

Then in Photoshop, it is about adding all of these elements until you have the result you initially drew on paper and had in your mind months ago.
