Additional Notes

***The Cover Shot with Melisa Mendini***

This image was done in the last minute of a production day, as I decided to shoot another "last set"; in front of this painted, structured dark grey wall. The setting was simple with a gridded beauty dish and an additional stripbox with grid for some rim light.

Melisa got a quick touch-up and I decided to go with a bright creamy net outfit as a lovely contrast to her tanned skin and against the dark wall.

The gridded beauty dish narrowed the light beam perfectly and only lit up Melisa while creating a nice light fall-off around her. This helped to get a more dramatic and “dark” look – the model simply stands out.

Rim light from behind right helps to nicely separate the body from the background and additionally creates a decent glowy atmosphere.

We simply nailed it. Thanks to an amazingly free-flowing shoot that took us less than 10 minutes!
