Watch the birdie

This is a photograph from Taschen’s book ‘Fashion Now’ by Cedric Buchet. The reason why I picked it out is that I’m about to do a long depth of field image and this has it all for me. The graffiti makes a really interesting but not too overly distracting background and an unusual pose gives it an edge. I already have a close head shot and a full length so something like this would be interesting to try. The lighting is really soft and there are no harsh shadows or shapes. A lot of Buchet’s images seem to use natural daylight but are definitely fashion which is really interesting. I’ll be looking into his work more often from now on. View Larger
