Dolled Up in Red Velvet for Halloween Flyer

Clients themselves in make-up to appear doll-like for their own business' Halloween flyer.

I made this image for the people in the image.  They are the owners of RAW VIBES, whose grand opening was just a few days ago.  This time they wanted me to produce an image they could use in one of their flyers to promote their Halloween event.  La La (on right) really likes kind of gothic dolls.  She showed me some images of them before the shoot, so that was the look we went for in the shot, as best we could.  I think she had a real talent for posing with a very doll-like expression on her face.

This is the setup I used for making this shot: 

  • Nikon D300 on tripod with built-in flash on in commander mode
  • Tamron XR Di II 17-50mm f/2.8 lens @ f/5.6 & focal length 17mm
  • Nikon SB-600 Speedlight hand held by me directly over my head pointing down at the models
