The 2010 Fall Fashion issue of Vita.mn was unique this year. It was a two-cover issue featuring Lauren and Tyler. The Models won “The Look” a Vita.mn sponsored model search. Other models from the contest were used in the Vita.mn poolside fashion show at the Calhoun Beach Club. The winners (Lauren and Tyler) signed with Vision Model Management and will be sent to New York to meet with an agency there. They also are featured in The Vita.mn Fall Fashion issue. Despite being new to modeling, Lauren and Tyler did a wonderful job and were great to work with.
We used the Walker Art Center as our location. It’s a great space with a lot of large windows and natural light. I decided to use the natural light for some shots and a mixture of strobe and ambient for others. The white walls at The Walker were useful to help bounce the light around, especially when purposely overexposing for a high-key look. Although many of the natural light shots did not make the final edit, it was fun to experiment since I tend to strobe most of my fashion shoots.
