For most of us, getting our photo taken for things like a drivers license or passport is something we dread. We know the photos are going to look bad. It’s just the way they are. The lighting is flat, bland, boring, horrible, and definitely doesn’t show us at our best.
When “reality star” Khloe Kardashian had to get her new drivers license, though, she didn’t want that. Oh, no. So, she took Keeping up with the Kardashians lighting director Landon Hosto along with her to get that perfect shot. I know this family’s supposed to be a bit over the top, but even this is pretty ridiculous.
The whole reason she needed a new license was apparently due to changing her name back from Odom to Kardashian after a divorce. And, well, somebody like Khloe isn’t going to settle for light that makes her look… well, like a regular person.
She asked lighting director, Landon Hosto to come along. While stood in front of the background, she asked “Landon, what do you think?”. Naturally his response was “I think you stay right there, I’ll throw the ring around the lens”, proceeding to then raise up a huge ring light. Followed by a photo shoot to get the perfect photo.
And as for how the photo turned out, well, see for yourself…
It reminds me a little of those “hot mugshots“.
I suppose if you can plan ahead, though, and take a whole crew with you, then why not?
Just expect everybody to make fun of you, at least a little bit, if you shoot a behind the scenes video.
