Opening April 19 at the Cincinnati Playhouse in the Park, is the theatrical production of Venus in Fur, by David Ives. We recently photographed the signature imagery for this play based on the erotic novel of the same name.
So how you do make an image look erotic and seductive without appearing scandalous or offensive to the viewer or client base? This was the challenge that guided us as we procurred wardrobe, lit the set and chose an alluring pose. The image on the right is an example of us working through this process.
Addressing these details before the talent arrives allows us to stay on schedule and remain within budget. Once the models were finished with hair and makeup we placed them into position, focused the camera and, wha laa! the photoshoot began.
Our Female model, Heather Chrisler worked through a series of situational roles from which two were chosen to use in the upcoming production.
Hair and makeup were courtesy of Cheyenne Wright
