Retro Sci-Fi Fashion Shoot

Karl teamed up with Next Model Management’s Kariss Craig, professional fashion stylist Bianca Swan and makeup artist and hair stylist Shanine Levrier for an intensive week of filming high-end fashion photography. In this class (which forms part of our newest fashion course) Karl takes inspiration from the movie Blade Runner to create an eye-catching sci-fi styled image.

Through careful control of just two lights Karl demonstrates exactly what can be achieved with precision, knowledge and attention to detail.

In this fashion photography class we cover the following:

  • Creative set creation
  • Creative direction
  • Posing
  • How to achieve synergy between various elements
  • Long exposure in fashion photography
  • Precision lighting
  • A simple two-light setup
  • Controlling and balancing multiple light sources
  • The importance of attention to detail
  • Analysing and making an adjustments mid-shoot
