White Fashion Shoot Window

I set out to do a test shoot featuring the rougher industrial aspects of the photo studio that I recently moved into. The floors and walls are painted white and there are several large windows facing west so it is filled with light in the afternoons. I am very luck to have access to this space. I thought that an interesting theme for this shoot would be white-on-white fashions in the white industrial styled studio.

I got an experienced editorial fashion stylist and booked a model from a big-name agency for the test shoot. We captured 4 different looks to illustrate this theme. Combining the airy white fashion with the slightly grungier white industrial aspects of my studio.

This shot is a mixture of natural daylight from the window and strobe to fill in shadows. The bulk of the exposure is from the window with 4x8 Foamcor reflector panels on either side of the crop. I took a large sized softbox at a low power setting and bounce it into the reflective silver ceiling for additional shadow fill. The result is a natural looking back-lit situation with enough front light to show the features of the dress and the beauty of the model.
