Being a Stylist | Behind the Scenes of a Photoshoot
I got my first styling assignment from my best friend, Rutuja Nagwekar, who will be seen on the silver screen by July. She's one of the actors in the upcoming Marathi movie 35% Kathavar Pass. For the Mumbai University and Maharashtra State Board, 35% is the minimum you should score in order to pass. The movie title says that some of the characters from the movie somehow could score 35% and get to the next grade. It revolves around love, friendship, and all those relate-able things collegians do.
I'm proud of my best friend to get her first movie, which has a well-known cast.
It was fun to style her, by mixing and matching the blouses, the ghagras, the skirt, crop tops, jewellery, and shoes. We shot in six outfits and had shortlisted around eight to nine outfits. The shoot started at around 1:00 and ended at 6:30-6:45. We had collaborated our makeup, accessories, clothes, and shoes.
The photographer and the rest of the team were her friends too and we had a fun time shooting. Everything was arranged properly and this was my first chance to witness a professional shoot. I'm sharing few pictures from behind the scenes so that you guys get an idea about how it's done.
