Krowd Magazine – “Majestic” Theme

Just published in the most recent issue of Krowd magazine is an editorial photo shoot that we did at the Moscow Tea Room in Ottawa. Here are the published photos as well as some of the behind the scene photos which were taken by Melanie Dallaire, the makeup artist on the photo shoot. It’s so great to have a fantastic and talented team to work with on these assignments.

As we didn’t have a lot of time at the location for the shoot, I wanted to keep the lighting fairly simple to set up.  That would help us save some time and allow us to photograph all of the designer’s gowns.  All of the lighting was done using a single Phottix Indra5oo flash with a 42″ shoot through umbrella.  For the entire shoot, I also decided to use the TTL setting using the Indra and Odin Flash Trigger. This was a big leap of faith for me, not using a light meter and entirely trusting TTL. All I can say is that the Indra and the Odin came through with amazing results.

Right at the beginning of the shoot I was having problems with my Canon 5DMKIII camera. Fortunately Marc had brought his camera and Odin flash trigger to the shoot so I ended up using his Nikon D810 camera and Sigma 24-105mm ART f4.0 lens for all of the photos.
