Futuristic Fashion

This is the second part of the shoot that I did with Charity, Jennifer Ruth and Celina Prado. In Part 1 we did 2 pop fashion looks.  In Part 2, here’s a futuristic fashion theme with black lights, smoke and neon colours!

We used two outfits for this shoot. The first was a black dress with neon pink stripes on the sides (H&M, $39.95), Red Dollhouse boots (Winners, $18) and a rainbow purse (Value Village, $5.99). The second outfit was a white top (H&M, $14.95), Orange knee-high socks (Winners, $2), Harajuku Lovers purse (Winners, $88) and blue Dollhouse heels (Winners, $16). Proof that you can be fashionable on a budget!  Here are some of the photos from the shoot.

It was a lot of fun and as a photographer, I really enjoy using unusual lighting like the black lights and effects like the fog machine!

    I’ve been meaning to ask – for the black light stuff you’ve been doing, how have you managed to get a high enough wattage? Or have you simply been shooting very long shutter speeds?

    I have 4 tubes I use long shutter speeds & wide aperture and increase the ISO when I have to. 1/6 sec at f/1.4 works using ISO 100. I also use a tripod and make sure the model stays still!

    Just wanted to chime in on what I used (http://www.flickr.com/photos/kurtchambers/sets/72157624659819905/), which most photographers probably wouldn’t go to the expense of getting, but I got one cheap on eBay. The equivalent of this: http://www.blacklight.com/items/ADJUVCANON. Mine doesn’t show its brand name, but it’s probably just like any other 400W black light. Was just looking for the fluorescent tubes and happened across this one on eBay for only $35! I can’t be more grateful for my accidental fortune, as it became apparent to me that the 40W/4ft tubes are comparatively insufficient for the task (the one I had served as a mere prop, while the blacklight cannon sat 20ft away aimed at the entire backdrop!). This allowed me to shoot at 1/100s (I really didn’t want to be stuck on a tripod), f/2 and ISO 800 (I have a full-frame, so noise wasn’t an issue).

    That’s a great idea – I’m going to look out for one! Thanks!
