As a person who has assisted in preparing drag queens on Halloween, I can attest to how difficult you must be to work with 😉
no one on this earth is more self conscious and self aware, than a drag queen. BUT editing and subject aside, I tend to agree with browneyed and the above posters. The tog fell short in camera. When that happens, you won’t have the foundation you need to get the desired look. No ammount of editing will make up for it. Unfortunately, you are right. photogs that know their stuff, aren’t going to take to kindly to you taking over. There’s an element of trust that would be broken, and I don’t think it would go over very well. You need someone that knows flash for sure. Natural light is not what you want. It’s too soft for what I believe is your desired outcome. I think if you found a good strobist to work with you would be much happier with the images. And btw an experienced strobist wouldn’t even flinch at the thought of setting up in the woods. Good luck in your endevours
