Light painting and Vogue aren’t two words that you usually associate with one another. But for the May 2015 cover of British Vogue, photographer Paolo Roversi photographed Game of Thrones actress Emilia Clarke using an interesting light painting technique.
As can be seen in the 62-second behind-the-scenes clip, Roversi appears to use a flashlight to literally paint in the models while using a long exposure. It’s an interesting concept and as far as we know a first for Vogue.
The results, well, they speak for themselves. The photos turned out great. It’ll be interesting to see how they translate onto a printed page.
