LOVE. I love Lara Stone, and I feel like I haven't seen much of her lately. This cover works for me on so many levels. The close up works so well. It's direct, and it draws you right in. Perfection. What do you think? Does this cover work for you?
I loved this guy. I'm not sure why he was at Union Square, but he looked so... absorbed. It was great.I also just love the way this shot came out. The colours from the flowers in the background etc. It came together really nicely and I loved it :)
I LOVED this guy. I actually couldn't stop following him around. (You'll see more shots of him soon). Do you SEE this print? It's gorgeous! I love that as a young man, he's fashion savvy enough to recognize how beautiful it is, and not be afraid to incorporate non-bland things into his wardrobe.
I have no idea what this guy's story is, and I only got this shot by chance, since he was actively running away from me (I assume like many Occupy members he didn't want his picture to turn up in a paper). But I would have loved to find out his story. I'm always drawn to the interesting faces in a crowd. But then, isn't everyone?
I remember when Occupy first started there was a lot of uproar over whether or not it was appropriate for the protestors to wear masks. While I'm not explicitly against it, I do think it sends the wrong message. I won't even lie, the V masks skeeve me out a bit.
This shot took me ages to get, and I'm still not super in love with it, but it was hard to get using a long lens in a crowd. Eh. It happens. It helped that this guy was determined to get this tricked down and literally did it over and over and over again. Slow and steady my friends....
In case you were wondering, I haven't abandoned my 365 Photo Challenge. I've been super busy, so I've fallen almost a month behind, but I'm back on track, and I'll be posting the missing photos over the course of the next week with a "backdated" tag, so that when I come back to them I'll know I fell behind. Anyway, this photo is from a set that I shot while in NYC last Friday. You'll see the rest of them in the following weeks, and in the backdated posts.
I was on my way to visit the grad school I'm applying to for next year, and found myself in Union Square, stumbling onto Occupy Wall Street 2.0 in the process. It was an interesting experience, and I even saw a small altercation with police. (One officer pulled out his camera phone to record a protestor...) There were so many interesting faces that I was like a kid in a candy store. I only meant to stop for 15 minutes and then move on, but I ended up staying for THREE HOURS. There was so much interesting fashion and so many personalities. I had a lot of fun, even if my feet were killing me by the time I left!
The reason I loved this photograph was because of how sincere this guy's face looked. You can't see it but he's greeting a friend he ran into, and I just loved how welcoming his face looks. And OMG dimples. Adorable? Adorable.
I can't wait to show you the rest of the amazing faces that I found while I was there. Hopefully I won't fall behind on the 365 again, although with graduation and final projects coming up, no promises!
Do you love those eyebrows or do you love those eyebrows?
I love covers like this because they really pull you in with barely any effort at all. Magazine ad space is sold on the strength of its cover, so it's no surprise that editors work so hard to create visuals that are so compelling and arresting. It's simple, but effective.
Another awesome cover. I recently went on a floor tour of the Teen Vogue offices, and a big part of each issue's cover is deciding on the colour scheme. I think the colours for this cover work really well. Nothing competes too heavily and it all complements each other. It's visually pleasing.
