Finally, a sneak peek of the photo shoot that Natalie and I styled and directed for Modern Vice shoes and bags, featuring our lovely model and friend Mirella. Photographed by me. This 18 year NYU student is such a stunner and knew exactly how to work all her angles in front of the camera. We had so much fun shooting this one fine Saturday in a studio in Queens. The studio we got didn't have much light except for a window near the back corner, which we definitely used to our advantage. Originally I was going to shoot with strobe, but in the end we decided to go all natural with just the light we had through the window and the reflection off of a huge mirror. We're good at getting creative with things. I think my heart really lies in creative direction and working on set, from pre-production to post-production editing. Getting my hands dirty in all aspects of a shoot just gives me the biggest adrenaline rush. I pine for the perfect shot. Creating a story out of beautiful clothes is such a dream. So much more to come from this shoot!
