Fashion Shooting for PINKO

This shooting with Istituto Marangoni was conducted for PINKO. I was asked to provide the studio equipment and set up the lighting according to the different looks. Furthermore I was acting as the second photographer. I always enjoy, sharing my experience, especially as there were some demanding requirements for this shooting. For the white background I used a 80cm beauty dish as a main light and a 180cm parabolic reflector as a fill light. Two additional flashes with small reflectors and gels were used to add yellow and blue color to the front and back.

Some of the scenes were done on location at the school and also outside.

Due to unfavorable natural light, I also used a ring flash. Although this is a very old style equipment, I am always pleased to see the results. If the flash is used carefully, it produces nice shadows and somehow provide a kind of fancy look.
