The last time I worked with Andrea was for a TV magazine show back in the day when she was 14-15 I think. Fast-forward and I get this gorgeous woman in front of the lens. How time flies and I just dated myself there.
Working with an actress brings an extra dimension to these kinds of shoots. They can imbibe a character and connect with the viewer almost effortlessly. Andrea has this natural sexiness with her, and all she needs to do is just stare at you with seeming intent. Next thing you know, you’re just caught up in her gaze and your jaw drops.
I wanted to do some “natural” lit shots for the first set, but sunlight was beyond my grasp that time of day. So I had to fake it by placing softboxes and grids in along doorways and corners where the light would be streaking in if the sun was out.
The weather was bi-polar. So from rain one minute, it was hella hot the next. I couldn’t complain though since we’re getting more than enough light we needed. The next series were all lit with natural light.
By the time this is up, we still have a few days left to cast your vote for FHM’s 100 Sexiest. Let’s push babe to No. 1.
