General Photography – Fashion Photography Shoot with Band Merchandise

 (www.chrisromanophotography.com - Chris Romano)

A few ago, I did something I really haven’t done before – a fashion shoot.  But its always good to experiment and go out of your comfort zone, right?  With some custom tailored band merchandise, me and a few friends ventured to a unique urban place, and tried to see what I could do…

Notes:

So for this, I pretty much just did whatever came to mind.  Leading up to it, I did a LOT of research and spent a lot of time just getting an idea as to how a fashion photography should look.  In some respects, I kind of nailed what is “current,” but I have no shame in saying I have a ways to go.

This was Rebecca’s (the red haired girl) idea, and the clothing was custom tailored by Gina (the dark haired girl.)  The girls did their own hair and makeup as well.

A few things I learned: a dedicated makeup artist really helps a fashion.  When I trying to play with lighting, pose the models, and get a cool and flattering composition, makeup is one thing I tend to miss in camera, and I only noticed it in post later.  I do wish I had a laptop tethered for this, which would have helped a bit I think.

I was fun though, and expect more like this (likely featuring one or both of these girls as well) from me in the future!

Equipment:

Nikon D3 w/ 80-200 2.8
Nikon D600 w/ 24-70 2.8

Beauty Dish, Portable Octabox, 4 Speedlights, and a Parabolic Umbrellas.  What was used in certain situations was all over the place.
