About the shots

These fashion & beauty images of Annabell, who is one of my favorite models, was shot in the back seat of an old Cadillac in the California desert about 2 hours out of Los Angeles, USA. It was raining lightly making the dirt on the windows collect in small pools. I really did not have to give Annabell a lot of directions because she is what we call a "Mover". In addition to moving, because a lot of models don't move or move mechanically, she is also graceful and has fluid movements. These are the rare qualities that all great models have. I included several images above to show how great she is as a model.

There is a short video here, about 28 seconds not counting the end credits.

For Photographers

The Gear:
Canon camera, 320 ISO, 1/125 second shutter speed, with either a
Canon 16mm - 35mm zoom lens set to f 4 or a
Sigma 85mm lens using f1.4 when shooting inside the car, then f4 outside the car as the aperture for the still images.

When shooting the video I used the same
Sigma 85mm lens at f7 with 1/50 second shutter speed and 320 ISO and the camera/lens was mounted onto a
Sachtler fluid head supported by a
Gitzo CF tripod. 

The Lighting:
Heavy overcast sky using a
Sunbounce Pro sized reflector using the silver side with a
Sunbounce boomstick with grip head holding it into position.
