Meet the dream team!
Finally a dream is being realized. The Inspiration Team had been talking about doing a collaboration to create a shoot. Allie was the one who suggested that we theme the shoot off of the movie In The Mood For Love. Pictured from the left to right is Allie Moda, Donna Helm, and Kevin Gaddis when we had our first planning meeting the other night at the British Beverage Company_ or better known as BBC. Allie Moda is a published wardrobe stylist, blogger,and designer in Dallas (check out her blog Through The Alley _ ) and I met her through my fellow photographer and friend Donna Helm of Casa Noir Photography _. Kevin Gaddis of Kevin Gaddis Photography _was generous enough to let us use his studio space for the shoot.
Here are some examples of the movie.
In the Mood for Love is set in Hong Kong 1962. Two neighbors bond over their suspicion that their spouses are cheating on them. The two fall madly in love with each other, but resist the temptation to be together to avoid becoming like their cheating spouses. The movie is full of moody ambient light, bright traditional Hong Kong colors and textures. The lighting assists in telling the story of desire and unobtainable love.
