I’ve been doing a lot of fashion shooting lately. It’s always intriguing to make interesting photography of beautiful clothes on a lovely model. Clothes are always a challenge because I have to find the right balance between making sure the clothes are really prominently featured, but at the same time making a compelling photograph as well.
Not all fashion photography can be considered art, but I try to keep that idea in the back of my head while I’m composing the image. I love shooting fashion in natural light. I prefer the challenge of using what I have at that moment to make a good photo. Sometimes it requires waiting until the sun is in just the right position, or chasing it around my studio!
Karolina is a new model I’ve been doing some tests with. She’s tall and built to be a runway model and it was fun trying out different dresses until we found a few that really made her feel good. This Betsey Johnson was one of them.
Simple, elegant and natural.
