I shot as if it were an Editorial photoshoot by choosing a set location and a specific outfit for the model, working with a chosen mood, and utilizing a variety of poses and visual references such as a boat, sand, and water to embellish the summer-to-fall transition theme. However, it was a low budget shoot with no team to prep for it like Editorial shoots have.
