Queen of the Desert: A Look At Lindsay Adler’s Recent Fashion Editorial In Dubai

By Hanssie on February 1st 2015

Lindsay-Adler-Photography-Queen-of-the-Desert-Editorial-Noise Magazine-2014-Desert-Holly-66 copy-2It’s only the first day of February, but Lindsay Adler has already been up and taking the world by storm this year. Fresh off a stellar year last year, Lindsay is currently prepping for her upcoming 32 city tour, Body Beautiful, launching her new posing guides and focusing in on the beautiful human body, from fine art nudes, to boudoir and of course, fashion. She’s teaching at all the major tradeshows and CreativeLive in between and still is finds time to travel around the world shooting in exotic places for her commercial clients.

One of her recent fashion editorial pieces took her to the desert sands of Dubai and was featured in Noise Magazine. For this shoot, Lindsay used 100% natural light, with the aid of a Wescott 30in and 40in silver-white reflector at times, a Canon 5D Mark II and the Sigma 24-105mm F/4, the Sigma 70-200mm f/2.8 and a Spider Holster.

A shoot in the desert must begin early, as by noon, the sun gets unbearable and will send anyone running for the respite of shade and air conditioning. The crew began at 4:30am to prep the model for hair and makeup before trekking into the deserts of UAE. As you can probably imagine after the sun comes out, it’s a race against time to get all the shots before it gets too hot to even stand on the sand. Lindsay and her crew shot in two areas on the sand dunes before the sun chased them away.

    Hats off to her. She really is a very talented artist. I would like to think I’m as creative, but then reality informs me that I’m simply technically competent!

    Well this is annoying. Just got back from a scouting trip on Saturday at a location where I’ll be shooting a similar style. I even spoke to the model saying that I wanted the sky to look that exact colour. I’ve chosen a different wardrobe though, so hopefully that’ll be enough to make my shots look interesting.
