A-Muse-Bouches a Trois: Partie 1 Bretzels Noirs et Blancs
In 2016, I had the rare pleasure to shoot all day with three of my main creative Muses and Friends - Vassanta, Zinn Star and Caitie. I have never edited all of the images from the session until now. At that point in time, I had been working with each of them for over 8 years. It was a day filled with laughter, love, and fun playing around with different ideas. I had shot with two of them together before, but never all three together. We came up with three different ideas and I call the three sessions A-Muse-Bouches a Trois as a play on the French word for "Appetizers for Three". The Three Sessions are Partie 1 - Bretzels Noirs et Blancs (Black and White Pretzels) as shown in this blog. We shot in studio with a black backdrop using one key light. I edited most of them as Black/White images with lots of contorted bodies, bodyscapes shot straight on , or climbing a ladder and shooting down on the creative contortions. In a separate blog, Partie 2 - Sauce Epicee (Spicy Sauce) is a hot glam shoot in my garage using barn like wooden walls as background and one large ring light. I mainly shoot neutral art nudes, so we all had fun as they got into their sexy/glam roles and flaunted for the camera. Partie 3 - Creme de la Creme we shot in studio against a white backdrop, white wardrobe and flowers with high key lighting to contrast with the darker first set. There was some really sweet interaction between the three of them that I was thrilled to capture showing their closeness as artists and friends. For each of the sessions, I included a few outtake / behind the scenes shots to show the goofy fun we had that day.
