Center Focus

Wowza.  This shoot I collaborated on came out better than I could have imagined.  The famous Dallas Nagata-White (Photographer) contacted me to do a unique, editorial shoot because she obtained a new fancy camera lens.  I'm not going to pretend that I know the brand or what it's called….BUT if you notice, it swirls the background!  It creates this cool warped effect that is beautiful & mind boggling.  (For details on camera + lens please visit Dallas' post here).

Dallas was open to any concept I wanted to play with & I couldn't help but return to hustle of Chinatown to inject the gorgeous Allie.  I had the idea of a glamorously overdressed woman standing alone in the mishmash of street vendors, strangers, trash, but all you could see was her.  I chose very different looks to pair with 3 different makeup concepts.  Here are a few shots, for full album click here.  I hope this mesmerizes you...
