You had a chance to meet Grant a couple days ago during our interview with him. Now come behind the scenes as we follow him on a fashion shoot.
Using Lines and Your Surroundings
During a fashion shoot your model is definitely your primary focus, but that doesn’t mean you can ignore your background. Grant using the surrounding train tracks as leading lines to help direct the eye, and other elements such as dilapidated billboards to accentuate the mode he is going for.
Adapting to Different Conditions
Sometimes, very often, things do go as planned. During our scouting trip to this location there wasn’t a cloud in the sky. Our shooting day however was very heavy overcast. The best way to overcome challenges is through experience. If you have experience under many lighting conditions, you can easily adapt to what’s in front of you.
Having a High Movement Model
Movement is the key to variety, and having a model who can’t sit still is actually a good thing. Diego was constantly moving his hands, head and body, and needed just a little direction to help pose those movements. If your model is a little stiff, get them to dance, shake it out, pretend to be a mime or anything else you can think of to get them moving.
