One way to really make a color pop in the camera is to deliberately chose settings that are relatively monochromatic. That doesn't mean they're boring: you can find interesting textures, negative space, and other fun design elements (arrows!) that will help the viewer zero in on that blast of color. Here are a few examples of how I used a neutral background to draw your eye to the featured fashion.

Although I shoot fashion on a regular basis, it's not every day that I get to shoot fashion shows and this one at California High School in San Ramon was a real treat. I guess it's like anything worth doing, but the amount of prep work relative to the duration of the actual event was astonishing. I spent about 4 hours backstage as the hair and makeup crew helped get all the models ready. The show was awesome, but it was also over in about 15 minutes.
Unexpected things happen at photoshoots All The Time. In fact, there are very few occasions where we've wrapped it up and I've thought to myself "well that went entirely according to plan." But honestly, the unplanned moments often lead to some really fun pictures. None of these shots ended up in a client gallery, but I love each one of them for the honesty of the moment. Let's get crazy...
