Typically I don’t shoot professional photography indoors, but I had a fashion shoot and wanted to pair the beautiful model and her clothes with a futuristic, industrial setting. I decided on a particular subway station after scouting for awhile, because I believed it would fulfill my vision of that juxtaposition.
The model I worked with, Brittani Bumb, was particularly talented and professional. Not only is she a fashion model, but she is also a clothing designer which, I believe, allows her to really know the clothes she’s wearing and how to effectively model different aspects of that wardrobe.
This was a really enjoyable shoot and we achieved some great shots together. It was also good to break out of my usual natural light photography and work in an environment with artificial lighting. I believe you can’t grow unless you challenge yourself.
