Model/MUA/Outfit by yume_ninja

Honestly, this was pretty much all yume_ninja's idea, the concept, outfit and the location. Which was the old LA Zoo. As you can see it made a FANTASTIC location of this shoot. I was just a GWC and a metric shit ton of lighting equipment. ;-)
And I can't say thanks enough for iamchubbybunny in helping out with the lighting, carrying stuff and all around being awesome. :>
Virgin Queen Photo Shoot
Maybe a portrait, but a couple of things going on here, especially because the outfit was white. Needed to make sure that all the details of the white dress came though and nothing was blown out. And just FYI, one flash behind her head as a hair light.
It really was a gorgeous day for a photo shoot. No the sky was not 'shopped. :)
You really should zoom in to this photo and check out the shadow that was cast. It's actually quite spooky!
This was one of the old abandoned lion cages or some such. Great texture in the stone walls. It was a bit of trial and error to get the lighting right though, but I loved the way the whole look came about. One nice coincidence was the shadow that yume_ninja on the wall. Wasn't expecting that, but it looked AWESOME!
You DO NOT mess with the Queen
