The second part of my “I had an extra day with my studio lighting” series.
As I previously mentioned, the weekend I shot Vaudezilla‘s promotional headshots just happened to be Labor Day weekend. As such, I had an extra (free!) day with my rented studio equipment. I previously posted photos from my shoot with Vayda Rhynstone, but I also shot with Shimmy LaRoux that day!
Shimmy, Vayda and I met at BurlyCon, the burlesque educational convention in Seattle. Since then, I’ve also roomed with Shimmy at the Great Burlesque Exposition in Cambridge, MA. She’s a very driven performer with a wonderful, effervescent personality, and a no-nonsense approach to the business of burlesque. I tried to capture all of these aspects of her in our shoot together.
What did I say about burlesque performers and props?
I hope you like these images as much as I do!
