Evening dress

Fanny wanted to take some pictures wearing an evening dress in a place where one usually don’t wear this type of attire. Interesting idea I thought and went location scouting, until I found an abandoned factory that was perfect for the job.

Equipped with my lightweight mobile setup we sneaked into the place around noon to make the best use of any natural light available, which wasn’t much at all. I think the pics turned out nicely nevertheless. What do you think?

Canon 580 EXII & brollies (reflective & shoot through) times two and a reflector for the session. The only drawback with this rig is no modelling light, which isn’t really a problem under normal circumstances.

However, the lack of light, natural or modelling, made autofocus almost pointless. There was a lot of guess work to get it right, as I had left the flash light in the car. Oh well, got there in the end.

As for Fanny, she was a star … as you can see.
