Test shoot – D1 Models

 Test shooting with D1 Models


Sometimes at the studio we collaborate with students on producing a shoot. A couple of weeks ago we were contacted to help out a student to produce a lookbook style fashion shoot.

Although the shoot was on a budget we were impressed by the student contacting and getting 2 agency models. They were Frazer Holloway and Freddie Vint from D1 Models


Did you know we give student discounts for hiring the studio and/or a photographer? Just mention this prior to a booking and get the discount going! Book Now!


Before the actual lookbook shoot we had time to do some testing for the 2 models. Testing is usually done for new models (often called new faces) working for an agency.

We create a simple and effective setup for  the photos. We used just 2 Elinchrom lights; one main light inside an octabox and one back light. We also used 2 black polyboards on each side of the model to give some contrast to the shadows.

The results are exceptional for such an easy setup. Below are a couple of photos taken on the day with this setup:
