Wonderland: RWB Keeping It Surreal

Last month the Royal Winnipeg Ballet turned my studio into the Queen's boudoir, for a promotional shot of their world premiere production of Wonderland. The creative brief called for an exotic looking image, bordering on the surreal, to reflect the "contemporary", and "mature rendering of Lewis Carroll’s psychedelic fantasy." From a technical standpoint, this called for turning traditional studio lighting approach on its head, modifying lighting equipment and creating new HDR target recipes on the fly. So in other words, another day at the office. Check out the results below.
