Los Angeles portrait photographer Eric Fischer faced a familiar challenge when he photographed actress Diana Hopper for a recent editorial assignment: limited time. "Anticipating this, I made sure that I had a great hair and makeup team, and a very particular creative direction," he recalls.
Having a plan in place allowed for the shoot to run smoothly and stress-free. For creative inspiration, he wanted to channel Hollywood glamour and was influenced by photographers like George Hurrell, known for capturing and celebrating strong women in dramatic black and white. To add richness and texture, Fischer used a single directional light source and no fill.
