Head in the Clouds | Kit Sora’s Storytime

This weeks was slightly rushed, as I had to make / shoot it on Saturday evening because Sunday was a heckin busy day! I think I actually sketched it earlier that day too!

So this was sort of a mash between ‘head in the clouds’, ‘look to the stars’, ‘light on the other side’ etc. I needed something I could create relatively fast, and with stuff already in the house. I found a sheet of cardboard (large), and literally plopped my face onto the cardboard in my living room to trace my face (both Drew and Tim were napping at this point). Once traced, I just cut out my face hole, and then glued down both lights and fluff. In the end, the lights didn’t work out quite how I had envisioned, but they’re cute enough for the one shot with Mulan Continue reading Head in the Clouds | Kit Sora’s Storytime

Duplicity | Kit Sora’s Storytime

For week 8 I was determined to get outside to shoot- I’d been going a little stock crazy, and if I’m unable to shoot outside for prolonged periods of time, no one has a good time! I also find it refreshing, and somewhat inspiring. Everything somehow looks and feels more magical when outside. I’m sure there are still a million other concepts I could come up with to shoot inside, but my heart was pulling for something outside!

I had originally planned on doing some form of giant key concept last year, however things went askew and it eventually fell onto the back burner. So, it was the perfect idea to pick up for this week! I decided Friday night that the Key was my prop, and created the base with bits found around the gallery! The tube once held canvas, and the blades are scraps from a frame! My dear coworker Chad was kind enough to trim them down for me to the perfect lengths!

Swamp| Kit Sora’s Storytime

For the first time in a while! Gosh! Drew abandoned me for Gander, and I’ve been busy shooting, editing, prepping to stand, and prepping for my own wedding! I’ve also completed artwork for an upcoming show (tonight/tomorrow @ vertical xpression actually!), shot a Mer’By’s month for the new calendar (y’all are gonna die when you see it!), attended a bachelorette, worked my regular dayjob & slept a little in between! The hecticness isn’t gonna go away anytime soon, so you get extra snaps this week to make up for the lack of updates!

This weeks image started with a sketch on the back of a gallery business card- it just came to me! Why be a mermaid when I could be a strange humanoid tentacle creature thing? Mixing it up a little is okay, right? So the same day I came up with the sketch we adventured to find POOL NOODLES, and I was determined to make them look like tentacles (They were bright orange, and more photos of that exist,… somewhere..Thanks to Louisa for the single one I have so far!~ )! I youtubed for a good while before I found something -similar- to what I wanted, and along the way it was modified! Continue reading Swamp| Kit Sora’s Storytime

STORY TIME! What you don’t know about this photograph!

Often times I’m fairly selective over what I share about the process of an image I create- Sometimes you get to see a sketch, sometimes a silly outtake, maybe a live video, etc. However it’s not often I share exactly what was happening while a shot is in progress!

For example! My darling Drew’s perfect expression- Those shifty eyes; He’s actually carefully watching a group of kids who came onto the beach! Naturally, one would see a mermaid and get super excited about it!.. but I was very topless! As for the rest of his face, he’s literally carrying the weight of what I like to call a manatee- We practiced this carry in our living room while I was wearing the tail! We didn’t however think to factor in the extra weight the water would add to the tail, or how hard it would be to stay steady while standing on rolling sand, with the water to our backs!
