Graffiti walls for photographers are pretty much like crack. We love them. They can be hard to find though. No longer for northern Utahns though! KidLabs in Sandy is getting ready to open, and was kind enough to invite some photographers and models around to shoot in their space. All the walls are covered in an array of beautiful colors, words, faces, and more. You can’t help but stop a moment and admire each individual piece and how it interacts with the others. It’s stunning!
Obviously, we all spent hours creating together, having fun, laughing, helping each other, and trying new techniques. Here are a few now, and I will probably post more later because I can.
We did get a ton of goofy stuff that I will probably post next…
I’ve just recently discovered a blog called The Offbeat Bride (http://offbeatbride.com), and I love it. I wish I had seen some of their posts and ideas when I got married! They seriously have a ton of ideas, but this one specific idea just made my jaw drop.
Here it is: a wedding bouquet made out of vintage brooches. Seriously. I’m. In. Love. To see the pictures and learn more about it check out http://offbeatbride.com/2010/01/brooch-bouquet. To die for! The bouquet was made by Studio del Fiore, amazing! (Once I get permission from the Fiore I will post pictures)
Truth be told I love vintage jewelry, it’s my favorite. And if you’re interested in making one of these and you have lots of time and patience, check out ebay (sometimes you can get a whole lot of jewelry for cheap, sometimes not), or local antique shops (I got a pair of rhinestone combs for $5 at a local antique shop in Sandy). And you don’t have to limit it to brooches. You can use pendants, necklaces, rings, earrings, bracelets, etc!
I’m thinking I may make one of these myself. It would make an amazing prop for a shoot, or just be fun to have!
