BEHIND EVERY GREAT SCENE IS A BACKSTAGE STORY...

"ATWT'S Paul Leyden And Terri Columbino Are Picture Perfect"

By Tracy Kofman

Ever wonder what goes into getting just the right photograph for a Digest feature story? If you think that all the actors have to do is flash their pearly whites as the camera clicks, think again. Here's an inside look at a photo shoot.

SUBJECTS: Paul Leyden (Simon) and Terri Colombino (Katie)
PHOTOGRAPHER: Fabrice Trombert
MAKEUP ARTIST: Bruce Wayne
WARDROBE: Provided by ATWT
LOCATION: Studio One, New York City

MAKE ME UP..."I always begin with light, natural colors," Makeup artist Bruce Wayne revealed. "For the second look, we can build on the base. It's much easier to add color than to take it away." Wayne acheived a smoky, more intense look for the next setup.
READY TO WEAR...Terri Colombino checked out her wardrobe choices and tested some possibilties. "I love this outfit," she enthused, referring to the sexy, beaded black top and pants. "I asked wardrobe if I could wear it for Katie's launch party. And I'm wearing it offset tomorrow."
HE SHOOTS, THEY SCORE...Photographer Fabrice Trombert created the mood for the first set-up --a playful, modernized version of The Newlywed Game. The funky show booth was custom-designed for this shoot. A photo was used for a story in the April 2nd issue.
ON YOUR MARK...After a wardrobe change and another round in the makeup chair, the actors had fun as they took their places in the secnd setup--an edgier scene with a sultry mood. Look for these photos in a future issue.
CHECK US OUT...Colombino and Leyden perused a Polaroid. Instant pics are helpful because they provide a good idea of what the actual photos will look like when developed. They're used to correct positioning, makeup, wardrobe, etc. "Let's adjust the lighting a bit," suggested Trombert. "I want to create a more dramatic feel."
THATS ALL. FOLKS!...After a full day at ATWT and taking the time (a good three hours) to shoot for Digest, these dedicated darlings were out the door and heading for home. "I need to get some rest," Colombino sighed. "We're in every scene tomorrow!"
