Style your Soul

“Over the years I have learned that what is important in a dress is the woman who’s wearing it.” – Yves Saint Laurent

 

 

Photographing the Ilse Menck fashion range for Kat-too Boutique in Seapoint was one of those easy-going photo shoots.

Bia, aka The Little Harlequin showed off the comfortable and colorful  cotton clothing against the beautiful country setting at Kersefontein Farm outside Hopefield.

 

 

Boutique owner, Rene Groenewald, knew just how to style each outfit with accessories for a stylish yet comfortable look.

I also had a chance to test out my new Hahnel Modus 600RT MkII flash giving that extra bit of fill-in light to keep the scene as close as possible to natural daylight.

The extra bonus to shoot the lovely Bia Hartenstein from Cape Town is that she’s also a talented actress and know how to flow into a character. Wearing the Ilse Menck clothing showed off her natural beauty and style.

 

 

Pepe, an Australian Blue Heeler, was there completing the country side scene.

I could not resist processing some of the images in black & white to emphasis the art of creating. Black and White images have a way of bringing a timeless perspective to the creative storyboard.
