Ep 84 Behind the scenes on an actor’s editorial shoot

Photo-Ep84-artwork

We take you behind the scenes of an actor’s editorial shoot. Here, Gina and Valerie discuss the planning process, determining what needs to be achieved, the different “looks” needed, how she achieved her goals in the setting provided and when and why lighting was brought in.

They reveal what techniques were used to create moody settings and how to shoot in almost pitch black circumstances and how to create beautiful backgrounds out of nothing.
