I've always loved shooting headshots. It's great to hang out with people, finding out more about them whilst capturing their likeness in the best possible light. The weekend I shot Anna's headshots I was trying out the Canon 5d mkii and I was really glad to put it through it's paces and compare it to my Nikon in an environment I'm very comfortable with. We shot up on the High Line and also in a Union Square loft apartment. Anna is a blast and I think we both had a great time!
Pearl Naidoo is a hot, up and coming designer of fashion jewelry who gives high priority to social conscience and African vibe. Last month I began shooting her products for the website and I also covered the website's official launch party which featured beautiful model Christen showing off the wares! I managed to get some great High ISO available light shots of her at the event on the Canon 5D I was trying out that weekend. Here are some highlights of that event as well as some product shots.
