The Ghost and the Girl

This one has been coming for a while. The Ghost and the Girl was an editorial model shoot for Tangent Magazine that I completed with model/photographer/ blogging sensation Zanita Whittington a few months ago.
We snapped two of the fresh faces on Sydney's modeling scene, Sophia Dishaw who was passing through Sydney's Priscilla's Management from Canada and Melise Williams one of Chic's newest (and my favourite) faces.
Once the setting was confirmed as a beach I knew I didn't want a bikini in sight, ever the queen of a bit of juxtaposition I decided the clothes needed to be as whimsical and appear as other worldly on this setting as the girls looked.
I sought out some special pieces from my favourite vintage ladies and added in a few labels with a sensual yet innocent feeling to them.
The lead up to the shoot involved Zanita and I drooling over some surreal inspiration shots and playing with different fabrics in front of lenses to see what effect we could create and on the day the final selection worked a charm.
This shoot was a dreamy representation of two very real beauties realized.
