Desert Fashion Editorial: 24-105mm F4 DG Art. When a One-Lens Solution is a Must-Have!

Earlier this year I took an expedition into the giant sand dunes outside of Dubai to shoot a fashion editorial for Zink Magazine. This was a shoot I had been anticipating for quite sometime, as it was the type of work I always dreamed of shooting. I would be in an exotic location with an incredible team on my side, beautiful model, and freedom to create striking images. It truly was a dream shoot made into a reality.

On the first day of shooting we took the vehicles deep into the dunes, passing camels and leaving the nearest town and signs of life far behind. As we approach the gathering of dunes I was amazed as they towered like mountains above the SUVs. Seeing the model first stand into front of the dunes, she appeared like a speck before their grand size.

Ghost Town Fashion Shoot: Simplifying My Kit by Lindsay Adler

Caption: Here I have established the scene by having one of the models out in the desert. I wanted to give a feeling of desolation and loneliness. For this reason I had the model alone, appearing to look for someone in the distance. I included cactus in the frame and the mountains behind her in order to give that feeling of isolation. I also used a piece of plastic in front of the lens to create lensflare (to give the appearance of heat).  Lens: Sigma 50mm 1.4 | Camer: 5D Mark 2 | ISO 200 | Aperture 2.2 | Shutter speed 1/800 sec | No tripod | Lensflare tool (plastic) on left side | ©2012 Lindsay Adler
