“I had the privilege of shooting backstage at the Make up Store show during the Christmas gala at Tele 2 Arena, Stockholm, Sweden. I have never been around that much talent in a small space before! It was crazy!! So many talented make-up artists, hair stylists and models! This is one of the finished shots that i took, there is definitely more to come! =)
Since it was only backstage before a show i needed to have a quick, easy, and portable setup that didn’t take up too much space. I choose my Elinchrom Quadra and put an A-head in a 120cm umbrella Octa with grid, overhead on a boom, and a round 110cm reflector directly underneath, shot against a white wall. Then the madness begun! I got maybe maximum 5 minutes (mostly around 2-3) per model, and it was so much fun!!!
