This is a really cool video of a shoot that Michael Thompson did for Allure magazine. I'll warn you, it talks almost exclusively about makeup and hair, but I loved the simple sets that they built for the shoot AND you see how the photographer used two big silver reflectors to shoot with natural light.
I've always felt that if you give your model something to interact with, you're more likely to get a more natural image.
What do you guys think? Ever built any on location sets like these?
