Meaghan and I had lots of fun capturing some Marilyn Monroe inspired images. I looked over some of Marilyn’s images before the shoot. Her imagery is very subtle and powerful. Trying to emulate Marilyn’s images would have been very challenging and probably not a whole lot of fun. Instead we made the shoot our own.
There was one major challenge though. How do you do a Marilyn inspired shoot in a modern day home? Luckily Meaghan’s home had some larger spaces where we could shoot. We were able to take advantage of light fall off so that the background would fade to dark grey or black. In the end we even improvised using some dark drapery to get an even darker background.
