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...
