sin limite, sin complejo, sin permiso, sin coraje, sin consejo, sin duda, sin precio, sin cura, sin nada."
- Chavela Vargas
The day was Wednesday, October 28th. The sun had set and I was nervous. For some of you who have seen my work lately, you know I am an ambient photographer (or at least I prefer to shoot with ambient light) mostly because I like to photograph to showcase lifestyle more than anything else. So for me to do a night style photo shoot, was a particular challenge given that I didn't take any of my lights with me. All I had was a gold reflector, and amazing lighting crew (who saved our butts!) and some amazing artists to bounce ideas off of.
I've always wanted to do a Dia De Los Muertos photo shoot, but I never pushed hard enough for it.
I want to extend a very special thank you to the following amazing people that made this photo shoot possible:
Pia Floral Design - Floral Headpiece
Krystal Chavarin - Make-Up Artist
Stephanie Gomez - Model
Adriana Melgoza - Light
