Behind the Scenes
This stylized fashion portrait was created in three steps. In step one, artificial flowers were taped down to a 4×8 piece of thin plywood. They were placed around where the model’s head and shoulders would be.
In the second step the plywood was put on the floor with a cutout for the model where she would lay down. There were two lights used; one directly overhead and a second smaller one (pictured) to fill in the model’s face.
In the last step the flowers were digitally duplicated all over the empty plywood to give the illusion of a complete bed of flowers. This resulted in about a 10x savings in the number of flowers used to create the image.
The look was completed by using a matching colored dress with dramatic eye shadow in the same shades of purple as the flowers.
