Bloody blood everywhere, and not a drop to drink…  What’s more fun than a red haired model covered in blood?

Notes on the Bloody Photo Shoot:

A week before doing this, Rebecca and I were brainstorming on doing something different and fun.  When I walked past a Redbox machine, I saw a cover for some movie (which I don’t remember the name of) that has a girl that looked creepy and was covered with blood.  Immediately I thought, “this is what we should do.”  I messeged Rebecca after searching for some ideas similar to what I had seen, and her immediate reaction was, “let’s do it.”  It’s great that we both happen to be crazy weirdos.

The “blood” was made with chocolate syrup, corn syrup, and corn starch, mixed with some red food coloring and a splash of blue food coloring.

For lighting, there was a lot of ideas that I had that I put in to use.  In hindsight, I maybe should have used more simple and dark lighting for a creepier mood, but for what we were going for (which was more weird and fun rather than dark and scary) I think what I did works well.  I used a lot of orange/red gelled light for the rim/side lighting, and in some spots where we were shooting, the light created some bad ass reflections on the cracked paint.

Equipment:

Nikon D600 w/ 80-200 2.8
Westcott Rapid Box – 26″ Octa Softbox

SB-900, SB-700, other speedlights x2, Rouge Lighting Filters
