Steve Thornton

Advertising and Editorial Fashion Photography
Brand Image Consultant


This advertising fashion image was shot in Nesso, Italy on Lake Como. We drove from Milan to this village on the lake and parked in the main square. I got out to scout while my styling crew dressed Gabby, who is one of the best models I have ever shot... just wonderful. Her wardrobe is by INC (International Concepts).

Shot with a Canon Professional Digital Camera set at 1/125 second, f4, 200 ISO in RAW mode with a 28-70 mm zoom set at 28 mm Canon zoom lens & processed in Photoshop. The light was from a Lumedyne 200 w.s. battery powered strobe using 50 w.s. with the strobe head inside a 30"x30" FourSquare softbox using a grid. MicroSync radio sync trigger. You can see the setup below.

How I Shot it

The image below is 6 frames before the top image. This shows how much light I'm using from the strobe. The only difference between all of these images is in this image the strobe did not fire. Designing the light helps add impact to the final series of images.
