Featured Project: Glamour South Africa by Shavonne Wong

We would love to share with you the latest project from fashion photographer Shavonne Wong. She sits down with us to discuss planning photoshoots while traveling and gives us insights on her post production and color grading process as well!

I love shooting whenever I’m on holiday somewhere beautiful. It’s something my wonderfully supportive husband has gotten used to. So when we planned our holiday in Barcelona, I naturally planned a shoot along with it.

Before the trip, I started emailing makeup artists/stylists based in Barcelona to see who might be interested to work together. From there, the people I talked to also helped coming up with location ideas since they were the locals and knew better. That was how I found out about the cactus garden there. I also told the editor of Glamour South Africa that I was going to be in Barcelona and would love to shoot for their magazine if they were up for it. I sent my proposed team and concept over and they agreed to it.

While I was there in Barcelona, everyday had gorgeous, beautiful light. It was so amazing and I really loved it. Of course on the day of the shoot, it became cloudy and overcast. Asshole weather. The show still had to go on, so we proceeded with our shoot anyway. For majority of the shots, I had my Profoto A1 with a white umbrella to add a pop of light into the images.

In post, after a slight color grade in Capture One and editing in Photoshop, I used ICP to help bring the colors of the images together. It helped to make the whole spread more unified while bringing a it to the next level.
