Name: Ramon Vaquero, Spain

Entry Description: Lighting Clothes is a personal fashion/beauty image series where clothing or jewelry are replaced by laser light lines, as an attempt to create a metaphor of the conventional elements of the fashion world, as well as an image about the elegance itself. To give the desired character to the images, it was chosen a mixture of two different light sources like studio gel-coloured flash units along with continuous laser light.
Simplicity and strong basic coloured light contrast were the main approach for the making of these images.
