So i got this opportunity to shoot a fashion design student, who does styling, and was recently scouted to model. She did everything for this shoot. I just took the pictures :)

Its quite different to the way I normally shoot, so was quite excited. I shot at 1pm in South African summer sun (which is about as bright and harsh as you could get), and crazy wind.
Also consider, she has very little modelling experience, though she does style and are on quite a few shoots for other models, so she learnt alot. I think she rocked it!


C&C Welcome :)

All taken with my 70D, 18-35mm F1.8 ART , 50mm ART and 50-150mm Sigma 2.8.
3 speedlights in an OCTA, both HSS and not.

The only real issue I have is with #2. Here's a girl in platform soles and a bathing suit, and the environment looks as though it's not within a three day hike of water.

The harsh lighting certainly didn't do you any favors. Is there a possibility that you could shoot her again at another time of day?

My favorite is #1...

Photography wise ...it's good.

In my experience, important thing you need to have to create a real professional high fashion shoot is to have a crew.... especially a wardrobe stylist.
You plan and do a mood board according to your location and idea ...then you tell the wardrobe stylist what mood, colors, patterns, textures you want so it works with your location and the style of shooting you are going to do(you have to have an idea whats trending in fashion or what works). Makeup and Hair will depend on the wardrobe. It's also very important to have an agency model who is experienced in doing high fashion ...... NOT glamour poses. Since she is still a newbie, have her research on high fashion poses...swimwear, fur coats and dresses, etc.

just my two cents.

Agree with the comments completely, it was really just an attempt. I wont arrange a full crew and im not confident that I have some experience.

I appreciate all the comments :)

Shots are good but not high fashion IMO. The outfits are too reasonable and something ppl would actually wear. High fashion is outfits that you would see in "The Fifth Element"

I'm not crazy about the hair in the first one, but the rest of them are nice. But as someone else pointed out, most of them wouldn't be considered "high fashion."

Not necessarily..... I think you are talking about a different type of high fashion ... which is actually called avant garde ....which are unusual and more on experimental looks .

The lighting and color toning are very nice. I think they look pretty darn good for a first attempt at fashion / editorial style (regardless of semantics about what does and does not constitute "high fashion"). :)

For the shots with a shutter speed of 1/200 did you use an nd filter to tone down the background?

Liking most of them, but the tree growing out of the model is a real no-no.

Love your entire series. I dig that ... red removed look with bround tones dominant.

Last image tho ... i miss some light on her face there ... too much shadows for my taste.
