So when the opportunity arose to collaborate on a shoot for an upcoming issue of the magazine it was a no brainer. "Let's do it!" we said. CSL provided the styling, creative direction, makeup artist and model for the shoot. Derrick Woo took the lead with photography while I provided backup. This gave me ample time to take behind the scenes shots. After a couple of hours we had worked through a few different setups shooting both indoor and outdoor with a combination of flash and natural light. By reviewing the photos at intervals, Kailash and Shivana were able to provide creative direction on the fly and tweak details until we achieved the desired results.
Although both Derrick and I had worked with CSL before, this was the first time we were able to collaborate and work with a model who was a member of Model Republic.
Working with talented, fun and creative individuals is very rewarding. With summer just around the corner, I'm sure the best is yet to come!
