Recently I had the opportunity to participate with my Professional Imaging class in a Fashion Photoshoot that included several models that currently live in Rexburg. Most of these models are BYU-Idaho students, but some were local Rexburg residents. It was such a pleasure meeting each model I had the chance to photograph and to get to know them. I feel very fortunate to have taken photos of these talented models. I actually reconnected with some old friends and others who I had not seen in a long time. The locations of these portraits are inside the Kirkham building on the BYU-Idaho campus.
I have been taking fashion portraits since the beginnings of my photography career and fashion photography is undoubtedly my most favorite type of photography. What made this experience a little different for me was that I was under a rigorous time schedule and I had to use artificial lighting for many of the portraits. These images were taken primarily with a 50 mm and 85 mm lens. I kept the aperture small for the portraits that included full body and lots of background and a little wider for the more close-up photos and headshots.
In post-production I slightly adjusted the exposure, color balance, tone curve, contrast, vibrance, sharpness shadows and highlights. I did slight editing on the skin of the models as well. I am so grateful for the opportunity I had to come to this Fashion Photoshoot and meet these great people! Enjoy these photographs.
