Sometimes, I’ll get a prop, outfit or backdrop and not use it for years. It will sit there waiting until the perfect moment of discovery, and when I decide to use it, it’s the conclusion to a long story. Then there’s the other side of the equation. Sometimes I get something and I can’t wait to use it. The very next shoot, I’ll go straight for it.
That was the case with the red striped backdrop here. I saw it, loved it, knew that I wanted to shoot it, and I bought it. Less than two weeks later, I’m shooting Jennie and we came up with this look. I love the summer feel, and I love all the red. Jennie looks perfect against this backdrop, too: a dazzling summer beauty.
