Friis Fashion

Yesterday I visited a fashion show in Nordkraft, downtown of Aalborg. The show was organized by the fashion shops in the newly build shopping center Friis and was attended by many local citizens. Unfortunately, the lighting of the catwalk was not ideal at all. At the last stop the models were standing in almost a complete dark. What a pity. Anyway, I managed to get a few interesting shots. The one I present today focuses on the detail of the dress and what I think makes in interesting is the tension in the photo. Human eye normal expects to see warmer colors in a closer distance and colder colors little bit further away. Placing objects in the scene to follow this rule allows to create a feel of depth in the photo. In today's post the colors are placed in the opposite; warmer further away and colder on the main model. I really like the drama this trick allows to create. Camera spec: Canon 5D mark ii with Canon 70-200 2.8 IS II at 200mm, F2.8 @ 1/200, ISO 1600.
