Last Friday I had the pleasure of photographing one of my favorite Seattle personalities, Sylvia O'Stayformore. When she agreed to do a photo shoot with me, I was so excited! Sylvia always has something going on. She hops all over town hosting Rainbow Bingo at the West Seattle, South East, and Ballard Senior Center. She does private events, she hosts Tupperware parties, AND she has brought bacon to the stage for a delectable drag show, Bacon Strip.
For this photo shoot, I decided to feature Sylvia and her fabulous Tupperware. Below are some behind the scene photos of my set and the process...
I originally tried to scorch the shirt with the iron but since housewives have been wanting to avoid that for years and my Dad didn't want me burning the house down, I resorted to a good old fashioned lighter...and went outside...
See that ladder? Yep, that is for me. Sylvia was one tall queen and I had to get above somehow.
Toasting two loafs of white bread and melting three pounds of Veleveeta later...
And now my favorite part...
AFTER (FINAL IMAGE):
I am very happy with how this session turned out and I hope you guys like it. Thank you Sylvia O'Stayformore for being a fantastic model. Thank you Kevin Calhoun for making toast.
