Below you will discover what is a fashion editorial and how to deal with this type of commissions: both in color and in black and white. It is a team effort, so you will know the different creatives involved in the process and the necessary materials.

Before taking the photos in the studio, Rebeca will talk about some previous considerations, lighting schemes and light tests she performs and some tips when photographing people.
