You may have already seen the September issue of Vanity Fair on the newstands. The cover features a rather striking picture of Gisele Bundchen (the current "body") exiting a limo in a very mini-dress.

There's video of some of the photo shoot for that image and a number of other glamour type photo shoots at:

http://www.vanityfair.com/magazine/video/search

I always like to watch the pro's work. Of course, they'll have significantly more help than I'll ever have, and access to well known subjects, but I can always dream...

Anyway, it's interesting to watch as Gisele has a bit of a time staying in the dress...

what people should be noting is how no-brainer simplistic the shoot was, leastwise from a "lighting it" and "shooting it" POV. What "made" the image? Mostly the model and the MUA and stylist... and the fan, i mean wind machine.

Bingo!

No fancy techniques, amazing model, styling, make-up, hair, location and props.

Then "click" and you got the cover and a million dollar a year contract.

Model is everything, want better pictures, choose better models.

Ahhh, if only that was as simple as it sounds.

Al,

Thanks for the links and info. Unfortunately, most people will never have the budgets, models, etc., to go in that direction, it's a limited field that all serious photographers should shoot for.

It's funny, often I hear about how people can't afford higher end lighting and other photography gear, which is basically the analogy here when it comes to higher-end shooting. If we could have the best of both worlds, this world's images would be only of top-end models photographed with top-end equipment--obviously that is not the greatest common denominator and we must learn to live with what we have access too.

There are some that can buy their way in too, then there are others who do it the hard way, the more common way, work your way up--which is a goal serious photographers follow, some with better road-maps than others.

I make most of my living photographing people between the ages of 40-55, the majority being subjects, not models. Sure, I'd love to shoot the top-models of New York from the top agencies, but I'm also happy practicing my "photographic therapy" with normal people, they may not get published in Vanity Fair, but they pay.

Thanks for sharing, rg sends!
