Studio Fashion Shoot with Vanessa


Some of you may remember I shot with Vanessa in the summer.  I wanted to shoot some studio fashion images and got in touch with her to model for me.  She was quite keen as she would like to have more fashion images for her portfolio.  Hair and makeup was provided by Robyn Skinner.  She is a MUA I worked with many times before.  We had exchanges of mood board and makeup ideas between us.  By the time we got to the studio, we had a good idea of what we are doing.



For lighting, I used two lights.  Key light was provided by a Strobeam DL4 with a grided 175x75cm softbox.  I had a Yongnuo YN565EX in a silver reflective umbrella from behind to provide rim light.  I did have a background light at the beginning, but I felt a slightly darker background worked better than a high key look.  I stuck with this lighting throughout the shoot.



Like most photo shoots, hair and makeup took most of the time.  Robyn did an amazing job providing two different looks within the time of the shoot.


I have a behind the scene video on Vimeo about this shoot.
