Our recent editorial with Al Aniqa Magazine was shot based on 5 dress visuals on a very short time frame. I have learned that it’s always best to have the best creatives who can work under tight schedules and deadlines. We were fortunate to have Katie Cousins who did makeup and Mike Toro who was responsible of hair. Both are seasoned professionals who have a great resume and created 2 lovely looks to match the lovely dresses.
Some additional photos from the shoot.
Thanks to Samar Sadik for taking most of the behind the scene visuals!
The designer of our lovely dresses is Mona Al Monsouri, based in Abu Dhabi.
Lighting was primarily daylight shot in the great HOTCOLD Studio, with a 1/4 scrim placed above the daylight windows. Additional fill was added by a silver Sunbounce and white Foamcore. We also used a fog machine to added a bit of “mystery” to the visuals.
I added soft color gradients in post to pick up on the lovely color of the dresses.
Big thanks to a lovely team who made a great editorial.
