SHOOTING of The Ice Queen by JAMES
Shooting the Ice Queenwas one fo the more relaxing shots of the tour. We were in Belgium in the area of Eifel which is part of the national forest. The task really was to find a suitable location and guess what – we had to find it while the model Ivana Miss Croatia and finalist in Miss World was getting ready.
To fit in with the style needed which was mystical fashion, we had to create a type of mystical effect with light, I didnt really want mist everywhere I also wanted it believable and although not quite fashion I wanted a fashionable look. Using a single light source on the model and one side light this was created. A generator was used to power the Creo 1200 pack.
The main problem facing the team and me shooting was Marco the client, was really specific about the angle and how the bird should move and where the wings should really be for the final picture. To cover this we shot a complete range of images documenting the whole composition just in case. We needed to get the bird almost ready to take flight.
