Marsha, Marsha, Where’s Alice?

1 Marsha, Marsha, Where's Alice

Amazingly, I got another chance to do a shoot with Rwah last night. This time I was only supposed to be the model; I had no plans to actually take photos, having given up on that earlier when my creativity took flight. But Rwah is such a wizard at setting scenes that I couldn’t help but snap off a single shot.

Yep, you read that right – this is the only photo I took. As I explained to Rwah, “Peep Pictaking 101” is to take 20 or more shots using different Windlight settings and hoping for the best. Imagine my surprise when I took a look at this photo and decided it wasn’t half bad.

Perhaps some of Rwah’s magic is rubbing off on me; I have never before been happy enough with a single shot to publish it. A quick tweak to give it a faded Polaroid feel and I was set.

We are showing off the “Wish you were here” house from Scarlet Creative for this month’s Collabor88. While this round of “Milkshakes and Turntables” is more of a 50’s theme, the house reminded us both of The Brady Bunch. I never understood how an architect would build a house that had only two bedrooms for six kids to share, yet could afford a live-in housekeeper.

So in answer to the question, Marsha, Alice is tucked away in her private suite, laughing that you and your sisters are crowded into a single room, fighting over the bathroom with your brothers 😉

You can pop over to Rwah’s blog to check out the credits for the set and her outfit and to see her interpretation of the scene.

  1. its perfect! I hate you I am so jealous! One shot!!!! uff! Where did I put that spork!. Oh wait, hmm, I blogged that you should dump a person like me. never mind –.– I love your gorgeous lovely picture, it’s almost as gorgeous and lovely as choo! ❤ xo

  2. I love this photo…first my eye see you on the sofa then as I pan the picture….the other girl comes into view, perfectly framed in the background.
    As to the two bedrooms for six kids…thats not as bad and one bathroom! Even with three people thats hard to manage.

  3. I loved that show. I’m with Cougar I grew up in a large household so sharing a room was a way of life that was normal to me. I’m thinking over that you take over 20 pictures with different wind lights.. normally I try to find a wind light that works and take several pictures… maybe up to 10 sometimes. I just don’t have the time I once did to take and process pictures. The picture came out great with the lighting. I haven’t even attempted to get into C88.

    1. Sometimes it’s more, depending on whether I do different camera angles or not. To me, that is the fun part – seeing how the shot looks under different lighting.

      Just recently I have started using a few select WL settings and taking a look at the raw shots after I’ve taken 5 or 6 different ones. If I see one I like, I’ll give it a rest. It’s hard for me to stop, but I am trying to wean myself from my addiction to lighting lol

  4. No poking eachother with sporks unless I get to join!!!! Im jealours lol ❤ Peep you are an amazing photographer. The magic you work with your Lumipro is truly great. I love how you see the angle just a tad different and then create a whole new atmosphere with that and your lighting skills. So… On to the next one! ❤

Talk to me! (please? )
