It is always challenging to shoot spring in winter and fall in summer so after posting about the amazing installation, River of Light, this summer, I decided to set the ffwd fall fashion issue against it as a backdrop. I love the way Creatmosphere lights their projects and it made me think of fall and the changing colors of the trees. Colin Way was so fast on this one as we only had 2 hours between it getting dark and when they cut the power to the installation at Prince's Island Park. Teslin Ward did the make-up at the studio, beforehand along with Phillip Elliot on hair, and we set up a makeshift wardrobe room in the park. Kelsey Sirucek from Mode Models and her boyfriend Jeremy Scnieder were good sports as the weather here in August was terrible. In fact there was a huge thunderstorm (with hail!) right before we left for the location. All in all a fun shoot and it was amazing to see the installation so late at night with no one else around.
