Kane and Star … vintage sweethearts who love old cameras and bikes
I’ve been giddy all week thinking about this photo shoot. Each of the photos make me smile, warm and all fuzzy inside 🙂
For me as an art director there are so many things that make a photo shoot great. Having a great team, a great couple and having mother nature love us enough to let her rays shine. This was one of those mornings.
Sometimes I think it’s harder to ‘dress a shoot’ with a few simple props that make a big difference, than it is to use lots really big props (or in some cases too many little ones). I think we got the balance right with this shoot. The props are there and they add sweetness to the photos but they are still very much in the background.
Every thing that needs to be said in this shoot is said subtlety.
…. From the old vintage bikes to the 1965 “Dream Lens” (50mm f/0.95) … (side note: we will be using this camera and lens to shoot film instead of digital for one of our upcoming shoots – stay tuned for that one!).
I think everything in this shoot is as it should be. Even the boring brown residential location adds character in this shoot. I can’t explain it, when something works it works (thanks Team … you made this magic happen!).
More about the couple
Apart from being ridiculously photogenic, Star and Kane really are old vintage sweethearts. They actually own both of the bikes you see in the shoot and the clothes they’re wearing came direct from their wardrobe (obviously from vintage stores). I do however have to mention that the green skirt you see Star wearing was actually a dress and she sewed it into a skirt specifically for this shoot (how sweet is that!!).
I also have mention that the outfits (although came direct from their wardrobe) were put together and styliside by the lovely Madame Moi and all the gorgeous accessories you see are from her stunning boutique (I LURVE working with you Madame Moi!!).
I kind of don’t really want to say anything else about Kane and Star because it’s all said in the photos. Actually, I will say one last thing … Kane and Star remind me of Juicy Fruit chewing gum (original flavour)…. (sorry I know that’s totally random lol) … They’re young, fun, vintage, old school, sweet … and there is something about that’s so unique I can’t quite pin point the flavour … but I’m totally addicted 🙂
