Capri sun handmade dress & bag | recycled fashion portrait

Newer Older

Capri sun dress and handbag made by my Sister for a recycled fashion project. I returned to the photography studio at her college to photograph this dress and a few other new ones. I tried a slightly different light setup; using 2 softboxes on the left and right on a low light setting and then the slave pointing to the front and slightly down the left casting some shadow down the right side.

We tried a load of different, quirky shots to help bring the photo and dress to life, this one was my favourate.

The bag is made up of 36 pouches, i'll give a gold star to whoever correctly guesses the number of caprisun pouches used for the dress?? =]
