Leah Perry’s project “Color Pop” is a shoot celebrating the coming of spring with poppy colors and a vibrant look. The shoot is full of colors that will make you excited about spring. What are you waiting for? Let’s see the series!
I spent much of the winter shooting greys and neutrals, the improving weather brought on the desire to shoot something featuring color. This shoot was very spontaneous. Maryse’s agent let me know she was going to be in town, and I’ve always wanted to work with her. I thought vibrant colors against her dark skin would be beautiful.
I only had two days notice, so I called a wardrobe stylist I am close with and borrowed from her closet. I knew I had a lilac seamless at my studio, so I picked wardrobe items to compliment this. Although this shoot was just me and the model, I think it is important to note that the majority of my shoots involve a full team.
Canon 5d miii shooting tethered to Capture One with Elinchrom lighting. She is lit with a 7′ Octabank and a 3′ Octabox. I processed the files in Capture One. Light retouching and color shifts in Photoshop with a Wacom tablet.
So far people have loved it.
About Leah Perry
Leah is a native Bostonian who found her love of photography in high school, then found herself in the deep South to study marketing at Emory University and photography at the Portfolio Center School of Art and Design. She now exploits her business-smarts and creative talents as a fashion, beauty and product photographer in Atlanta, Georgia. Leah loves a good story told in stills, constructing new worlds on set, and contrasting drama on film with sprightly energy and a cool-as-a cucumber vibe in studio and on location. She’s also fond of her husband Dan, kitties Serafina and Pantalaimon, and shaking it a bit on the dance floor (when schedules allow and the mood strikes).
