Last saturday the Dushanbe fashion show took place in the Serena hotel, right here in the center of town. If you were there I don’t have to tell you how great it was. If you weren’t, you missed without any doubt the fashion event of the year. It turned out to be a glamourous feast with beautiful models showing some of the finest clothes you’ll ever see in Dushanbe. First the clients got a go on the catwalk modeling the dresses they had tailor made by their designers. Tajik models followed in a number of amazing dresses and outfits, each more spectacular than the other. And I got to shoot al this. Since it was an outdoor event that started prety much at dusk, I was worried sick about the changing light conditions. Not a bit good for photography. Luckily I decided prety much last minute to take a strobe and a large umbrella. I positioned it at the end of the catwalk and bingo, it threw enough light to get some great shots. Probably just as well the show started late afternoon. Like that I could shoot from the start in manual mode at a shutterspeed of 1/160 which I needed to sync my strobe. Used my ISO to account for distance and the changing light. Probably not the most professional solution but hey, it worked and that’s what matters. You can check out my official pics in my beauty/fashion gallery or on the Dushanbe fashion website. I’ll upload more in a couple of days.
