Crimson Tide | Published in Femme Rebelle Magazine.

Happy to report a little good news story today in a world seemingly devoid of positives. A new feature in the fantastic alternative fashion publication Femme Rebelle Magazine.

I’d recently purchased a crimson paper backdrop from Manfrotto, which I was keen to test out.

Jessie answered my casting on Instagram, and we got to work on bringing this concept to life.

I opted for a three edge (Joel Grimes style) lighting set. The 22 inch socked beauty dish boomed overhead, front and centre. Gridded strip boxes aimed back at the model from behind, for some edge highlights. See the diagram below.

This is one of my favourite lighting setups. It works great for both male and female subjects.

We added a suitable prop…………….

I LOVE to use props…………..

……………..until the prop has served it’s purpose

……………….and you kick a field goal with it!

3 points (and no cuddly toys harmed during the making of this!)

Thanks for viewing guys.

Stay safe.
