Double Exposure: Episode 2 Recap

Last night, on Double Exposure, we got an inside look at a photo shoot with Lindsey Lohan. But first, Markus and Indrani are still in Los Angeles, shooting with Dita Von Tess, star of The CW and Flaunt Magazine.

The first shoot of the episode is of Jessica Stroup and Armie Hammer for a Flaunt Magazine fashion editorial. The key to fashion magazine editorials is that they need to tell a story. Flaunt, in particular, wants a raunchy, sensual story where the sex comes flying off the page.

While Markus and Indrani fight over equipment sensitivity, ideas, etc., GK Reid swears that their bickering and fighting leads to great photos. So while frustrating and annoying, ultimately, it’s worth it.

The best feeling in the world is to be desired, so Indrani encourages Markus to flirt with their subjects. Sometimes, though, he wants to take it past the photo shoot and that’s not always best for him or their professional relationship. This episode focused on Markus’ love life, leading to some drama between him and Indrani. While they work well together, they never forget their romantic past.

Jessica and Armie are getting hot and steamy – her legs wrapped around him, her tugging off his shirt – and the lighting is bringing out the sensuality even more. While it got hot in the diner, they’re kicking it up a notch in the bedroom. The publicist on set is worried it’ll be too sexy for her client’s CW-aged fanbase. They have to tread the line of sexy and erotic with this shoot. They make the women into a goddess, a symbol of female superiority.

Indrani may be “the bitch” of the shoot, but she makes sure everything gets done on time and in the way it’s needed.

The last setting is on the train tracks with the setting sun. Just when they hit a groove, a train derails their plans. They have to get off the tracks, but they end up with an amazing shot of Jessica just off the tracks while the train whizzes by. This is definitely my favorite of the shots tonight.

Indrani walks through the post production process – she used two images to get the right expressions from both actors, upped the contrast to bring out the shadows, and then turned it black and white. She spends the night going through the film from the day and editing select photos.
