The main photographer and MUH for this session, Diana Adrianova, is part of an organisation called “The Secret Family”, which sounds a bit ominous, till you find out it’s run by a guy called Alex Secret (and on Instagram she’s called “Diana Secret”) – and consists of a turnkey studio, photography, make-up, model management and talent agency set up in Saint Petersburg. You’ll notice that Kristya, under her tag at the top of her Instagram image-link, has “More Studio” – and it’s just one of their numerous dedicated studios. (In one of her Instagram posts she refers to Diana as the “primary photographer” and Alex as the “secondary” one – so I’ll give Diana the credit.)

As you can see, this wasn’t a simple “throw some flour around and take a few snaps” session – there are a number of compositional ideas in it, as well as the variety of treatments that have been tried out. I took most of the images from the main Alexsecret.ru site, but some come from Diana’s VK.com blog, and her and Alex’s Instagram feeds – and the different backgrounds and colour effects show how much tweaking was attempted in between various postings. I’m not sure if they’re convinced which version works best even now: but as it seems to have been a vanity project (or a paid-for session by Kristya) it probably doesn’t matter…..

Diana herself is a honey – and only recently graduated – I wonder if she and Alex are an item? It doesn’t do to speculate – all I know is that with their contribution with Kristya on other projects (as well as with other photographers), I’ve got more than enough material for “Kristya Shmidt III”…..here’s the talented Diana Adrianova:
