About the image

This dramatic on location fashion photograph was shot as part of a fashion project shot in Milan, Italy for an American client. I wanted to shoot this in a section of Milan that is part of Stazione Centrale, the central station, Milan's main international train station. The part I was looking for was the area under the tracks that have huge arched wrought iron gates. Most of these had graffiti, which I dislike, but is a cool background when shooting certain types of images. We drove to the street... and the entire wall, the brick, the gates, the roll uo doors, everything had been painted a blah brown paint. I'm surprised they did not paint the sidewalk to match. Ugly. So plan B was to look elsewhere... like across the street. The metal fence was cool but needed help, like dramatic light, which I got by using a Lumedyne battery powered strobe system inside a FourSquare 30x30 “Travel” softbox with a LightTools 40° grid to control light “Splatter”.
