This entire shoot had everything going against it. Amongst 8 other things [I counted] the biggest things were RAIN and lack of light. But Upasna made it work and how? BTW, that chair next to the garbage can was totally soaked in the rain when we found it and I sat on it!! ewwhh. But it was a perfect spontaneous setting and I had to use it. My sari, undies plus butt are at the dry cleaners right now for a massive disinfectant cleaning.
Wearing a sari I fell in love with on my last trip to India. I dig the idea of wearing it with a leather studded punk rock-ish vest and leopard wedges. The flattop just fit right for what I wanted to achieve with the look and don’t you agree that this is a much edgier way to wear a conventional sari? Now if only the stupid Mohawk worked [I wanted to style my hair in a Mohawk and for those who follow DSM on facebook and twitter know what a disaster that ended up being..lol]. Maybe when I actually get hired to style a shoot someday I can attempt it again. In the mean while this is way beyond perfection already. Thanks Upasna!!!
PS: You guys should totally follow Upasana’s photography on her facebook page. It’s absolutely worth it.
