Wow. Before I share with you all that went into this amazing collaboration I have to thank everyone involved! What a great team — models, hair and makeup, photographer, and Yandy staff. For most of us this day was go, go, go, relax; for others it was relax, go, go, go. We started the day off with our 4 models in 2 hours of hair and makeup while us at Yandy and Shane Baker set up and tested our compositing plan. Once everything was set and the models were ready, we photographed each model separately, taking care to show the personality of the sign — it was a Zodiac shoot after all. After product images we switched to the group photo where it all started to come together and then it was back to hair and makeup for the models! The day went on with 3 sets like this. 

See the individual images here.

It takes a lot of preplanning to do a shoot like this and a lot of post work as well. Have a look below into some of what it took to pull this all together. And don't forget to visit Yandy.com to shop all these looks!

Compositing

Below are steps to layering in different pieces from other photos to get the right body poses and expressions.

 
 Pick your base image. In this case it was the best position for the girl on the ground.

 Start by layering in the back body position. Starting with the back most person saves you time on masking.

Preproduction

Here's an insight into the types of preproduction work that goes in to accomplishing a shoot like this. We typically start with mood boarding and move into the finer details.

 Google sheets is really helpful for scheduling out a photoshoot. The day went from 7a–5p... all the yellow is hair and makeup time!
