Ever since seeing this
photo, I have wanted to recreate it with my own family.
I loved the idea of dressing up in tuxedos and gowns.
Fancy, upscale, and glamourous. We can all dream right?
With a big dose of Saenz style, I knew we would have the makings for something really special.
I have been obsessed with Ophelia for years and years.
I have dreamed of doing a conceptual Ophelia photo shoot for as long as I can remember and I finally decided to try my hand at it a couple weeks ago.
I used a variety of polaroid cameras and different types of film to capture something I intended to be artistic and unique.
Polaroid film inherently has those qualities which is why I chose to photograph in that style.
I will say upfront that I did not get exactly what I had envisioned but I really enjoyed the exploration of the idea
and now have a better idea of what I want to do the next time around.
After fantasizing about this shoot for so long, I knew there was no way I was going to be satisfied with my first attempt but I fully intend on revisiting this concept again, in the near future.
There are so many directions I could take this...
For this particular session, we experimented with milk.
I used a variety of Impossible Polaroid Films including:
PX 680 Color Shade First Flush
PX 70 Color Shade
PX 600 Silver Shade
Priscilla soaked in a milky tub all morning for me.
Dont worry, there are more.
Yes, I will share them very soon.
PX 680 Color Shade.
