This post is truly Bubblicious Delicious (with a nod to Camden Underworld’s Monday club night of many-a-moon ago) and all in the interest of the up-and-coming test shoot. I can’t wait. Obviously, I’m not going to tell you the plan now as it won’t be a surprise when I do. But do I shall when I complete it. However, in the mean time, what I will give you is a suggestion of potential colour palette. And this is it: Bubblegum pop. I’m thinking 50s bubblegum pop in candy floss pinks, apple greens, disco orange and azure blues. I want jars of gobstoppers, morello cherries, stripy straws and sweetie bags, shopkeeper’s awnings, and cherry doilies. Bright and zingy, fun and silly with a scattering of class and a healthy dollop of sophistication. I’m thinking cheeky like Kelis’ ‘Milkshake‘ video, a little bit less brazen and with a smattering of old school Americana. I’m biting at the bit to tell you but I know it won’t be as good than if I wait. It’ll be worth it though (I hope). This little test shoot is my first collaboration with the talented photographer Simon Bevan and I am very much looking forward to it. May the propping commence. Watch this space.
