I did this fashion shoot at the beginning of the summer in New Jersey. Asta is a model from Lithuania who came here for the summer for work as a model. She looked pretty much amazing in all colors of the scarves, whether bright, pale and earthy, or dark.
For this photoshoot I used a very large beauty dish (28 inches) attached to a battery powered strobe. The shoot was done in a corner off the store at a white wall. What produced the really cool multidimensional effect was a mirror that hung to camera left, which reflected a portion of the light on the background wall behind the model in a distorted rectangular shape. White walls are great for reflecting light and the gray part of the wall is light reflected from the walls. The white part of the background is exactly the effect from the mirror.
The model posed beautifully. When picking models it’s vital to pick someone who fits the look. Asta was the perfect model for this particular shoot.
