As much as I love shooting editorial fashion with a bit of an edge or artistic style, truth is, both I and Orlando model Sarah Marie agreed we need commercial work in our books, and what could be more commercial than to put her in Victoria's Secret pajamas shot in the very recognizable visual style used by Target department stores?
The second look from our fashion test earlier this month paired the pajamas and slippers with the same pink background we used in the Breast Cancer Awareness Boxing look - you can read the blog here. I used a large octagonal softbox to provide a broad light that was bright, but very even and moderately soft.
There is more tech info below.
All Victoria's Secret pajamas images lit with a single Calumet Travelite 750 monolight with a Photek Professional Illuminata 52" Lightbank. Additional light from side reflector panels. Photographed with a Canon EOS 80D DSLR, Tamron SP AF 28-75mm f/2.8 lens. Exposure f/8 1/250 (sync) ISO 400.photo credits
