Black Dress and Diamonds

By garth01  
This was taken on location in a very exclusive jewellers, the model is wearing a Vintage dress and is modelling some very expensive diamonds. I was allowed 30 min to set up my gear and 1 hr to shoot six outfits for a local Vintage store along with matching jewellery provided by the jewellers all the while having the security guard close by to ensure nothing walked.The shop was full of cluttered backgrounds and so shooting was very difficult as I had to constantly adjust for things like my lights showing up as reflections in all the glass cabinets etc.I only had 10 mins per outfit but did try and shoot more of this dress as it was my favourite from the 6.

Considering the pressure--this is wonderful. Obviously whoever set-up the time allotted is NOT a phrotorgapher
