Last week I posted a clean, graphic fashion editorial I shot for Relapse Magazine, entitled "Void" (http://lablog.wpengine.com/void-fashion-editorial-for-relapse-magazine-by-lindsay-adler) on my blog. I was excited to share the images because they really reflected my style of clean, graphic images that arrest the eye!
For each shot I lit the model with a large light source (a Westcott shoot-through umbrella http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/755546-REG/Westcott_4632_7_Parabolic_Umbrella_White.html) to give the metallic clothing an even illumination throughout.
Each RAW image I processed twice in Photoshop CS6-- once so the model was in silhouette, and another time so that clothing was shimmery and correctly exposed. These images were combined to create the high-impact images you saw for the completed editorial.
Here is the behind the scenes video shot and edited by one of my friends and assistants, David Geffin. He did a fantastic job showing the high-energy and fun on my shoots. If you want to see the lighting, posing, and wackiness that goes on during my sets-- check out the video for sure. Its brilliantly edited (I say brilliantly because Dave is from London and the word seems appropriate). Thanks Dave (http://www.davidgeffin.com/) for the terrific job!

In case you weren't following, life is quite an adventure right now! I'm on city 5 of 33 in my tour with Lou Freeman, the 'Look Fabulous Tour' (http://lookfabuloustour.com/). So far we have met incredible people, played a lot of pranks on each other, and have been working 18 hour + days. If you haven't checked it out, you can keep up with some of the shenanigans on my facebook page (ie Dave Geffin diving headfirst through seamless paper). It's more than a lot of work, but it's more than a lot of fun too.
