This photoshoot is a challenging assignment for me. In many silk saree photo shoot I normally shoot either one model or three models maximum. But this shoot brief was given to me The Chennai Silks would like to have a combination shot like friends having a group photo at a celebration. Including two kids there were a total nine models.
Me and my stylist have segregated costumes as per the color theme. In group photo the models’ costumes should maintain some color theme. According to the costume colors I have selected the floor tile pattern and furniture, because the props should complement
And my stylist took lot of effort to select the jewelry. Stylist and I saw lot of references for bridal jewelry. Each religious bride has some uniqueness in their wedding jewelry, so based on that my stylist chose the jewelry.
Now the challenge is everyone’s costumes have to be seen well and all they have to express well for one click. And to maintain even soft light and equal amount of light for all the models I used four skimmers. The details of the silk saree have come out well. Since these images are going to be used in huge hoardings, I shot the images with my new Fuji GFX 100s camera. It is a 100 megapixel camera.
And for exceptional color tonal I used profoto lights. For the best silk saree shoot I always depend on my team. I need a good saree drapist, makeup artist, hair stylist, fashion stylist, costumer and lighting team. After the shoot my post production team did an excellent work.
While presenting the final output to the client, they said Wow.
