Creative Flash 6 - Cover Girl

Lighting In Fashion

After the clothes and the models who wear them, lighting is one of the most critical elements in fashion photography. Dress a beautiful model in a stylish outfit, put her in bad light, and you'll end up with a photograph that no amount of Photoshop can recover.

So, when you get the call to shoot a fashion assignment or a cover girl, you'd better walk into the studio with some mad lighting skills. Because Photoshop doesn't have a filter for boring.

Lens:     Nikon AF-S Nikkor 24-70mm f/2.8G ED

Light happens.  Be ready.  Shoot hard.
