Lighting Deconstructed: Richard Avedon

THE ORIGINAL

 

 

 

We’re back at it again. Dana Pennington and myself are going to attempt to deconstruct the light on a Richard Avedon photograph of Stephanie Seymour. The contrast on this image is rich so we had our work cut out for us but watch on as we go back and forth on placement of the light and then figuring out the right exposure. Also watch how directing the model is so important! We worked with our model, Ali, to get her in the exact pose we needed to deconstruct this shot!
