The September issue introduces the fall fashion lineup and is arguably Vogue’s most important issue of the year. If you haven’t had a chance to watch the movie The September Issue, you should take some time to watch it. It’s a great insight on what goes on inside the world of high fashion and photography.
Shot in the amazing Milk Studios, Mert and Marcus’s photoshoot with the diva pop queen is surprisingly and refreshingly kept simple. There are no 12-light setups here. For the cover shoot, we have one big parabolic umbrella with a Profoto head, camera left, as the key light and a softbox near the floor, camera right, for the dress.
Be sure to watch the rest of the video to see more of the photoshoot. Can you guess how the other scenes are lit?
