Playing in the sun like a meadow fairy, Alex Long (@allotree) glows in this editorial shot exclusively for Nouszine by photographer Steve Fan (@stevefanfotos).
Shot on a perfectly sunny day in Malibu, California, Alex and Steve had endless space to play. There was no one around, and they got to spend hours getting the sunlight to shine through her hair just right.
We spoke to Alex for a little behind the scenes on the shoot:
Nous: How much planning went into this shoot?
Alex: This shoot was really easy for me to get ready for. Because it was outside, I knew it would be pretty low maintenance for my hair and make up. I spent a couple hours going through my closet making sure I had enough options. My entire trunk was full of clothes, so I probably over did it!
N: Are there any problems that come up when you shoot in nature?
A: The bugs. That’s it. I can handle almost anything else but the bugs, no. Other than that, I love shooting in nature! I feel very comfortable and connected when I’m outside so getting “in the mood” isn’t hard.
N: How was it shooting with Steve?
A: Steve is awesome to work with. He is very down-to-earth and low maintenance. He gave great direction that really complimented the location and was able to capture these perfect moments.
Perfection, indeed. Check out the rest of the editorial below!
