OUR LADY OF SORROW


I'm excited to announce that my recent editorial, Our Lady of Sorrow, has been published in the April Issue II of ELLEMENTs Magazine! Huge shout out to my team! I couldn't have done this without your help! 

 

This series was an exploration of how clothes, intricate symbolism, and designs become objects of desire and worship, an editorial commentary about Our Lady of Sorrow. It depicts the intense suffering and grief Mother Mary experienced during the passing of our savior—Jesus Christ—as well as the courage, love, and trust Mary had as she received each new suffering. Our goal for this project was to use photography techniques to highlight these intense feelings and emotions.

BEHIND THE SCENES

RACHEL

In today's test shoot, we channeled our inner "Twiggy". I first met Rachel while I was helping out a friend to assist and style their photo shoot (check out Shane's work by clicking here), and immediately thought she would be absolutely perfect for this concept! She was awesome, and totally rocked this shoot! I hope you love this unique, Twiggy-inspired photo shoot as much as I do! Follow Rachel on Instagram at @rayy_reee

MIONA

I am so excited to finally share these highlights with you from my most recent test shoot of Neal Hamil model, Miona! With the help of my talented team, we were able to bring our concept to life: female bosses and the empowerment of women in the workplace.

We choose to style Miona in a conservative, business-attire appropriate dress with minimal jewelry (because less is more, right?) paired with a neutral smokey eye and bold red lip for an elegant, classy look. I shot this entire shoot with a Canon 5DSR, Sigma 35mm Art Lens, and a speedlight. I played mostly with the curves adjustment layer in Adobe Photoshop to give the photos a cinematic look.

Let me know how you think we did down in the comments below, and be sure to follow Miona on Instagram at @mionamijalkovic
