What are you most attracted to fashion-photography?

Initially, I wanted to live a life full of romance roving photojournalist. But then I learned the life of fashion-photographer, where no one will shoot you in the back while you work. It's a beautiful world in which embodied imagination and ball ruled beauty.
What advice can you give to those who are interested in fashion-shooting?

Engage in joint projects. The work on the project and interact face talented individuals, each professional in his field. Learn how to skillfully guide the creative flow of each team. Then the shooting are productive and fun. Our work - is primarily the creation of illusion. First, we set the scene, and then create light. Finally, you give the model indicate a scenario that she would have to play in front of the camera. Your task - to find a time when you created the same story will look more convincing and capture it. If only the entire frame is spinning around lighting and clothing, provided on models, the picture comes out lifeless and very tight. Keep the models in motion, while the photos are more believable and realistic.
What is your favorite lighting scheme?

The lighting in my photos is constantly changing and is changing, because the viewer wants to see something fresh and new. I do not like to do around from time to time the same thing. The difference in work done well, and the work done is excellent, in the nuances. Continuously improving their schemes.

I use studio equipment Dynalite. Light sources with less power I use to local positions to highlight some parts of the picture that I want to pay special attention.
