Had a blast doing this one!

My daughters and I made the hat and glasses.
Kerry MUA
Hailey Model
Friend Enzo assisted with lights

My little Alia was begging me to take her pic all day when I was setting up the lights. To distract ther I gave her my old Rebel. She was so excited she filled a card in a matter of mins!!
When Hailey and Kerry showed up, she played the shy card..barely saying a word. She gazed at Hailey and Kerry the whole time they were prepping.
Still not a word.
We begin shooting in my dining room/studio. Tight quarters! Where I was standing no one could enter the area. While I was shooting I feel a tug at my leg..I turn to see what my Alia wanted. She didn't say a word..she just snuck in there with her new camera and started clicking away. She took her five or so shots and stepped aside as if to say...ok I'm got what I need now you can continue!

I created a photo thief!!

Will post outakes and lighting setup soon

Beautiful styling. Love the hat and glasses. Nice color, hair and backdrop. Good response to challenge theme. Looks like a very, very messy shoot!

this will win a ribbon I'm sure
The colour of the hair is of prime importance to the sweetness of this shot - just great!

Leo? Is that you again?

This will, obviously, take blue. The amount of work in the set up alone is incredible and of course the lighting is spot on - wouldn't expect anything less from you Leo. But (and isn't there always a 'but') I really do not like the skin processing. For my tastes it is way too over-smoothed and detracts from an otherwise effective image. I am interested in whether this is your intention and personal preference, or did it just go too far? Excellent concept either way.

Definitely a cool concept but just wondering how it would have looked if the suger would been falling left of her face and face with glasses is also shown.

I love almost absolutely everything about this image, from the hair to the details in the candy hat to the sugar cascade. Only two things that disrupt the image are the overly-smoothened skin and the weird purple haze between the models left eye and hairline. Her ear also has purple, but can't tell if that is reflection from the hair or errant editing brushwork?

Im sure the clean up for this shot wasnt fun...great effort
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/27/2013 08:36:45 AM
The glare on the glasses and the blur from the sugar in some places being a bit too much, its still a unique shot because of the striking look of the girl, and extra point for the clean-up.
