Annie Liebovitz Vanity Fair style shoot

May 24, 2018  •  Leave a Comment

 I recently completed a fabulous project to create an Annie Liebovitz Vanity Fair style shoot.

The commission took place in the Great Room at New Hall Hotel and Spa in Sutton Coldfield, where a group of friends were holding  1920s style murder mystery weekend and in full costume wanted to create a Vanity Fair feature style look.

There were around 19 people, one dog and a small child in the shoot, it was very tight for space and the lighting quite difficult.

Shot on a medium format Hasselblad H5d with a 28mm lens, lit by three B1 Profoto lights with shoot through brollies close together and one Profoto A1 with a dome.

I was thrilled with the out of camera results - shot tethered to a laptop on a Tethertools stand.

In the preliminary discussions it was determined that we would source a trunk, and two step ladders, we also borrowed a chair and I also used some Manfrotto posing cushions.

We took a variety of shots including a stoic look, a happy look, shocked look, a murderous look and a disbelieving look.
