Welcome Charlene Mericia Bell from Bell Studios how does it feel to be back for another feature with us at MOLLMAGSA?
One of the highlights of being a creative, is when others recognize your work.
“Being featured in MOLLMAGSA is always a highlight for me as it is a sign of being recognized.”
What was the feel and planning behind this shoot how did it all come together give us a glimpse behind the scenes?
My shoots are normally a collaborative process with my clients/models. This shoot was the brainchild of Charlene Lombard. She had a few ideas the shared with me that she wanted to shoot for her birthday. I suggested a suitable venue based on her outfits ideas and the planning progressed from there.
Covid-19 spoiled our plans and we had to postpone this shoot by a couple of months until we were able to go outside and shoot. It ended up being very cold on the day of the shoot.
- Our first look involved Charlene being bare feet but she handled the cold like a pro and we good some really amazing shots from that first look.
- Our second look was with the black dress and Charlene really looked elegant in those images. We had specific reference images and poses we prepared for the shoot and it all came out beautifully, as planned.
As a female photographer Charlene for Bell Studios what would you say is your style and image you portray to the world in your photography and what message do you send out to the world through photography?
“I love to take photos that portray the female form in all its elegance.”
I personally spend a lot of time with my clients/models planning a shoot from the outfit to the make-up to the poses.
From a photographer’s view how would you describe model (Charlene Lombard’s) look and image in the modeling world what 3 words describes her the best in your opinion?
