About the Video
This fashion image was shot in Cologne, Germany during Photokina, the world's largest camera show where 190,000 people attend. This was shot about 50 minutes after sunset so we had some skylight, but not a lot of it.
From his first series of test shots, Steve shot a total of 84 images in 17 minutes, most of this time was setting up and "Tweaking" the balance of the skylight, strobe, the reflector and where the model looked and walked.
