Fashion Fun

So, was back in the studio today with some models, a makeup artist and a whole bag of outfits and accessories to play with. We got lots done and I'm really quite please with it all.

I did learn a new trick though and that is photographing sunglasses. Damn those things are super reflective! Only a very few of the photos worked without getting me in the shot, reflecting the softboxes at odd angles or just looking a bit odd.

Much thanks here goes to Ola who is a lovely new model and was much fun to work with.

  1. Which sunglasses trick did you learn? The "push the arms of the glasses up a cm or so above the ears so that they reflect the floor even if the model is looking straight at you" trick?

    If not, you might want to add that one to the kitbag :-)

    It feels a little strange for the model, but isn't noticed in the final shot, even if they've got short hair.
