photography & retouch by Photographie Martin Strauß
hair & make up by ISABEL LIMA PIMENTEL
model: glynis from most wanted models

it is part of a fashion shoot for the superior magazine.

We shoot this editorial in a small but shaby castle somewhere in Brandenburg, Germany. (Brandenburg is full of lost castles, which are going to be renewed.)

I just two studio flashes (around 400/500W) with one blue and one magenta plastic sheet inside the softboxes, to great an edgy look.
The dress is made of small reflecting sequins and the headpiece is made of metal and silk and some other shiny stuff.
i used hard light to get the most of reflection and details.
the hardest part, although, was the factor time: since we had just 2 hours for the full editorial, i had to shoot every dress/outfit in less than 10 minutes.
this particular picture was number 10 from the last "set"

i hope you enjoy it, as i do.

80mm · f/2.8 · 1/160s · ISO 50
