Photographing Glitter on a Model

As much as I would love to claim this concept... I can't. A friend of mine set the whole thing up. That said, I did provide the lighting... so I guess I can say that I had some hand in its creation. =) As far as the shoot itself, I walked away with only a handful of shots.  But man oh man were they cool! In the end I was super stoked with the results. A little tip for anyone that is planning to do something similar, please please please do not use glue to glitter up your model (not saying that is what we did... but the method did cross my mind) instead the girls that photographed with me came up with the smart idea of using vasoline as a coating agent; apparently this is a well known technique among the cheerleading community. As with my last post... this post will be short as well.  Once again make sure to check back in.. I have another shoot to post... although not as creative as this one.. but still just as awesome.
