Fashion Editorial: Anthony Lopez

When I was in LA a couple weeks ago, I got the opportunity to work with experienced male model Anthony Lopez.

Anthony has such versatile great looks & physique, so I tried some fashion editorial shoots with him. A different direction from my previous work, it was more about the lighting and mood. We shot these in my hotel room, using the sun and the cheap hotel lamp as my only light source.

Because I was traveling lightly, I only brought one light with me. I got around this handicap, by using the sun as my 2nd light, it's most evident on my vintage Rugby shoot with Anthony. Using the sun for backlight also means the sun was behind Anthony, so he wasn't squinting. It's smart solutions like these that produce great photos.
