Vanity Fair Cover Lighting

No comments:
Without a staff of assistants and the massive umbrellas and octoboxes that Annie Leibovitz routinely uses on her shoots, my assistant Aimee Blodgett and I created a photo set today to mimic Annie's Vanity Fair aesthetic. Using an umbrella and two strobe heads deflected through a Lastolite scrim, we were able to evenly light our four models, posed against a white stucco background with creeping ivy.

The finished product lacks the nuance of Annie's covers as she uses Box Studios to do the heavy pixel-lifting and retouching but I consider it successful. The shoot was undertaken as the lead image for a USF Magazine feature and it will likely be a consideration for the cover.
