Cape Town Couture - Cindy Bam

I had the pleasure of photographing a selection of Cindy Bam’s creations last week. Cindy is an established Cape Town designer who designs and makes all of her wedding gowns and evening dresses here in Cape Town. If your in the market you can either buy one of her popular designs or get something completely bespoke created for your special day or occasion. I decided to shoot the dresses at the beach where we could do a mixture of afternoon light and fading sunset shots and also a mixture of elevated rock and beachfront shots. We used only natural light for some but for the most part 1 light was used to either combat the strength of the afternoon sun or to light our models and their beautiful dresses against the fading light. We definitely put the Elinchrom through it’s paces and despite nearly running out of power we managed to squeeze the last bits of juice from the ELB 400 and it went the distance! All in all a great afternoon.
