Harald Glööckler Cover Shoot by Frank Altmann
30 Years “Pompöös” – Harald Glööckler, one of the most colourful personalities of the fashion world, celebrates an anniversary! This occasion alone would have been a good opportunity for new photos, but on top of that, the fashion designer and entrepreneur is publishing a new motivational book this fall, too.
For the book cover shot and further anniversary photos, he hired pro photographer Frank Altmann from Wuppertal (Germany), with whom he has successfully realized shoots for covers and lifestyle magazines before.
THE LIGHTING SET-UP
Frank Altmann used the Fujifilm GFX 50s medium format camera and aimed for a brilliant light, to make Haralds luscious jewelry and other accessories shine. At the same time, the light should be flattering to the skin and create a beauty look.
That’s why Frank chose our Grand 120 Softbox for the light modifier, where he installed an Integra Plus monolight indirectly on the inside via the Bounce Adapter.
With the removal of the front and inner diffuser of the softbox, plus the indirect mounting of the flash, he received a particularly brilliant and vivid light, which additionally provides good color saturation.
