When Saris Explode / John Tesoro

Rosie is a pretty little lady with a pretty / pretty heavy sari that she wanted to capture during her photoshoot. So we ate some spinach, lifted up the sari, and crashed it on top her head. Ok it wasn't THAT heavy, but I'm sure the MUA (Gianna) had some aching muscles the next day. I just directed from behind the camera with my light-as-a-feather 50mm lens. I put two gelled lights onto the sari to pop the colours out a bit, using a blue and orangey/yellow tone, the same tones incorporated in the sari. Then out of no where, the sari exploded :O Good thing I was snapping away and captured it!

Jessica had no idea what she wanted to do for her manip piece. About 2 days before the shoot she texted me a cartoon version of Poison Ivy all up in Batman's face. So our themed changed from a very dark one, to a colourful comic book character, which I really preferred anyway. I love when clients practice in the mirror, and I love when they get so excited for a shoot that they go out and make a costume! The shoot was no more than 10 minutes, she knew exactly what she was doing way before she reached my house. God bless you Jessica, God bless ya.

I posted this piece and had no idea what to call it, until someone mentioned the upcoming movie "Black Swan". Well there you go, I've named you, my child.

The Rise and Fall of John Tesoro premiered last night in L.A., and I was so happy to hear from one of our team members that it was a great success! Here is Gerry Bednob (40 Year Old Virgin , Zack & Miri Make A Porno) expressing his excitement.
