Something Old, Something New

Photography is an ever changing and evolving thing for me. It's amazing to go back and look at the shots I've taken over the years and compare them to my current work. Sunday Reece and I had a shoot planned, that was suppose to be elegant, and high fashion. Well, the muse is a fickle beast. LOL, we did make-up and hair, and chit chat turned into, 'Hey, didn't you have an afro wig?' Ha ha, did I! Two or three years ago I did a 'high fashion' shoot downtown Tampa with these wicked 80's prom bombs that I'd found. I bought three afro wigs to go with it. Blond, black and red. LOL, man...good times.  Here are some shots of what I did a few years ago:

Chuckie, a most awesome model, can make anything look great. The afro wig is so big that we had to put a towel underneath to pad it and make it big. LOL, so I know it had to be hot. But you can't tell. She made it look so easy.  

Any who. We pulled out the wig, did some crazy adjustments, and now my something old, looked like something new. As usual, Makayla completely owned the look and we turned out some great shots.
