Harper’s Bazaar – "Subtle Sheen"

This story was shot in the magnificently restored Bhau Daji Lad, Mumbai’s oldest museum. A beautiful but challenging place to shoot, we needed to avoid all the glass display cases. We managed to do this by shooting at a relatively low angle and lighting the space so that the background would fall off but the foreground and ceiling were illuminated.

Background was lit by strobe with reflectors and the model was lit mostly with a softbox or beauty dish on a boom stand.

The museum is a fantastic place to learn about Bombay’s unique colonial history.
