I started working with a new client, a new jewelry designer named Victoria Skirpa. We made these images for her self-promotional materials. She's really putting a lot of energy into the endeavor and it's nice to work with someone so fired-up.
Sometimes on set, an image shifts into an unintended look. I've seen it happen dozens of times: the setup is supposed to be one thing, but looked at with a certain attitude, it looks like a completely different thing. Once that starts happening, it's really hard to avoid, and I've learned to keep my mouth shut when I see a shift like that, because much of the time, it's a peculiarity of the moment, but it can totally derail the shoot.
But for a time during this shoot, this looked unavoidably like three little brown googly-eyed creatures.
