This on location fashion editorial image was shot in Milan, Italy. An acquaintance told me about this location and he got us into the building. We were not supposed to be here so we moved and shot as quiet and as quickly as we could. The building was in a state of disrepair and had "Stuff" laying about. I included some "Behind the Scenes" photos above along with information as how I shot this image.
I loved the glass door but If I exposed for the model, the glass would have been totally white or close to it. So I decided to use the strobe system.
THE GEAR: Canon camera - 1/160 second 500 ISO with a Canon 16 to 35mm zoom lens at 16mm f4.5. THE LIGHT: FourSquare "Travel" softbox with a LightTools 40° grid attached, powered by a Lumedyne 200 Watt Second battery powered pack set at 100 W.S.on a Manfrotto light stand.
