Fashion and Beauty Photography shot by Advertising and Editorial Fashion and Beauty photographer, Steve Thornton

Advertising and Editorial Fashion & Beauty Photography

Brand Image Consultant

This fashion image was taken in a studio in Nashville, TN where we were shooting a series of images for a client. On every project my producer always keeps a watchful eye on the styling crew to make sure there are no delays and to help solve any problems that may come up. In doing this it insures that the work keeps flowing and as a result we were 30 minutes ahead of schedule. My producer had also structured a staggered model schedule to help hold down costs to the client, so I did not have the other models needed to keep shooting and lunch had not been delivered as yet.

I'm not normally a body at rest, so I asked the crew to grab some lighting gear and set it up in front of this wall. We balanced & adjusted the light and then asked Chris to pull off his shirt. Initially I was shooting with Chris standing but then decided to have him squat. My styling crew pulled a pair of boots & had him take off his running shoes & put the boots on. Because I wanted the boot to be not in such deep shadows, I had crew bring in a lighting addition to gently add fill light but not to the point of making it flat, but to just help it read a bit better. In 15 minutes & 45 shots later we were done.

Go here to see how I shot this and to see an 80 second behind the scenes video.
