Off The Record:  Les Adorables

Larry Lourcey

Hi and welcome to my blog!I do my best
to keep things updated and give you a look at things happening behind the scenes here at Lourcey Photography. Although I've been a professional photographer for over 20 years, I'm also semi-famous for my pizza and bread making. So follow along and enjoy the adventure. And don't be afraid to leave a comment and say hello!

The Next Album

As we work our way through the Off The Record Project, I thought it was time to mix in a fairly modern album – a movie soundtrack actually. While the Les Miserables soundtrack isn’t necessarily an “iconic” album, it is definitely a very recognizable cover. On top of that, it is actually a pretty cool portrait.

Portrait Outtake

Trying to survive the Hurricane!

The setup was pretty easy- light the model and hit her with some air to make the hair fly around. Turns out it took a little more air than I had thought. By the time things were finished, we had her mom using a blow dryer from the side and my assistant using a leaf blower from the front! Through it all, she managed to keep her eyes open and focus on the camera. Quite the trooper! There was hair flying all over the place- I’m not sure how she survived.

The Title

The only part that I was unsure about was how to handle the title. Luckily my model had already figured that one out. We changed “Miserables” to “Adorables” – which worked perfectly. If you’ve ever been in front of my camera, you know I love to use that word, so it fit perfectly! The rest pretty much fell into place with some light post-production in Photoshop. It will certainly make a fantastic addition to the series.

Pink Lady This next image in my Off The Record Project is a tribute to Pink’s “The Truth About Love” album cover. While it might not be quite as iconic as some of the other ones we will be tackling, it was certainly a fun one to create.  After all- isn’t that what it is all about? The Concept When K...
