BTS Alla Kostromichova For FaceControl (NSFW)

This article contains images and/or video that the editors have flagged as NSFW (Not Safe for Work).

While this BTS doesn't give a lot of insight into techniques used, you can still gather a lot of info from it. I found it interesting that the photographer, Julia Chernih, used just natural light and a reflector. Also upon closer inspection it looks as if she shot the whole thing on a Canon 50mm f1.8 (my favorite lens, but I will go into that another time), which is pretty sweet to me. The photos came out gorgeous using a very minimal setup.

How do you guys know, that this is the Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 and not the f/1.4?
Thanks!

You can see it in the video at 1:08 or otherwise in the pictures EXIF (it seems like the ones on this blog post still have the original infos) ;)

These photos put the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue photos to shame. 

oooo...Sexely filled with ideas!

Really really neat images. #3 seems a bit sloppy though, if you look closely on the left side of the hair it seems as if you can see where she cloned? May be me though.

Love it! Great job guys.

50mm f/1.8 cheap-o lens! Nice.

I say it all the time. A great clean location, a great model, great hair and make up and great natural light. You have to work very hard to get bad images from that.   

A fashion shoot with no detail in the clothes?  Comments are too kind and not constructive at all.

 I agree with you... I was more trying to say that the shoot in this article probably had 1/100th the budget of the SI Swimsuit Kate Upton shoot, but the images in this one are so much better.

Items needed for fashion shoot:
- nice location
- fabulous model
- amazing stylists
- great hair/makup
- minimal gear...ironic no? :-)

I take nothing away from the photographer, these are very nice shots but I will say this is a case of great pictures mostly to do with a great subject rather than technique, lighting, lens, etc, etc. not that a great camera, lens and light on their own can make a great picture, but when you have subject material that is dynamic, beautiful, and as interesting as this, it's kind of hard to screw up pictures - particularly if they have generally good composition.

Again, nothing against Julia here, she did a great job getting great results, but its easy to understand how just a reflector, an older body, and a $100 lens could get this done.
