Día de Muertos or Day of the Dead is a Mexican holiday that has seen a spike in exposure in the United States the past few years making it a perfect subject for a photoshoot. Follow Jay P. from The Slanted Lens as he takes you behind the scenes of his latest shoot featuring a model dressed up as a Calavera (sugar skull) posing in an eerie cemetery backdrop.
The crew had to create a fake cemetery at the last minute when their location cancelled unexpectedly. They used a fog machine to create ambience in the scene and the model's makeup took over three hours to do. It seems that these types of shoots are becoming more and more popular. Have you ever shot a sugar skull themed shoot? If so post your version below in the comments.
