For this shoot I decide to break away from shooting colour and shoot most of this editorial in black and white. I love shooting in black and white as it gives the reader a different prospective of what the world would be like if you could wear glasses that could translate colour to black and white. Don't get me wrong I love shooting colour, but when I came up with the concept of this shoot I was really focusing on the rawness and shape and form of the model (Kirsty Macphail from Viviens) and using the surroundings to create a mood.
We are only half way through the Southern Hemisphere Summer and things are only just starting to heat up not only here at LaMode Magazine but weather wise as well. Stay tune to LaMode for more swim shoots.

LaMode is a global online magazine in a blog style format, or what I would like to call a blogZine. With a focus on Fashion, Swimwear and Culture editorials. LaMode Magazine is not seasonal with it's editorials because we like to shoot imagery that is on point to what we think will entertain you as the reader with our point of view.
