The main flag for me was black background and black runway combined with terrible lighting it wasn’t the easiest fashion show to shoot. there were flares everywhere but i think i made the best of it. In terms of equipment I had a gripped 30D with a 85mm f1.8 on a giottos monopod. the 1.8 aperture came in handy the 85mm was enough reach the main problem was horrid lighting from Intec (a local lighting company here in Jamaica). There were shadows cast on the run way, so at points you could see the model’s walking from harsh light directly into shadows, So it became a matter of shooting at the right points.

The challenge was kinda cool, The girls were split into 3 groups and each girl was given a personality to portray in the photo and make it look good as a group, a certain synergy should be present so to speak. They were typical personalities: Sexy, Shy, Spunky, Gangsta and Diva If memory served me correct. Here’s one of the images from the...
