A girl should be two things: Classy and Elegant - Coco Chanel

This photo is from a series of photos I am doing for a folio assignment. It is a 1920's - 1960's Inspired Fashion theme.


This was actually a shot I didn't plan as such. We were actually doing a shoot infront of Louis Vuitton which was right next to the Chanel Construction site that I completely walked past! It wasn't until my partner asked if we should shoot in front of Chanel and after one glance at it, I knew we had to do something with it! With the skirt I made to the dress, I knew I wanted to show it off a bit so I though the best way was to show the movement of the skirt. I had the flash coming from only one side of the shot so that I could get some shadow and depth to the image. I am very happy with the result and so glad someone pointed out the place for me! This was shot with my Canon 7d with a 28 - 135 mm lens and a Impact Lighting portable kit.
