Parascandalo - STAR Collection 2018, Campaign Shoot

All i'm going to say is: Check out that blue!

Ok maybe i'll say a few more things... Parascandalo is a designer brand from malta, headed by the talented Marco Parascandalo. At this year's fashion week, when Marco and I were discussing how to shoot backstage he said "This year (with Marco wearing head-to-toe black at the time)..  shoot in colour please,  i'm going to have a lot of colour this year". He was not kidding :)

For the campaign, Marco suggested the Cospicua waterfront, which has amazing geometric shapes as well as a fantastically neutral set of tones. This provided a playground of shadows and texture for me, and also allowed the bright colours of his collection to really take centre stage.

The team for this shoot:

  • Female Models: Lara & Giulia @ Supernova
  • Male Model: Matthew Lanzon
  • Clothes & Styling: Marco Parascandalo
  • Makeup: Jennifer Dimech

 This technique can be easily created by mixing flash and ambient light. Simply set a 1-3 second exposure and make sure that this gives you an image underexposed by at least 1 stop. Add flash and let the camera use TTL or set manually if you're using strobes.
