Day 1 in New York shooting with Elen

Firstly sorry I haven’t blogged since April, I have been so busy but I will try my best to blog once a week from now on ūüôā

I’ve been wanting to shoot with¬†Elen Santiago¬†@¬†Major Models New York since is saw her pop up in my Facebook newsfeed in January. We were finally in the same place (NYC) at same time in June.

My day started off flying from Chicago to New York, after lugging up 4 incredibly heavy suitcase up 6 flights of stairs, we arriving in our Airbnb that did not look anything like the pictures online. While Rozie (My P.A) tried to find us a new hotel, Elen and I walked over to Washington Square Park for a quick one hour to shoot!

Despite the disgustingly dirty apartment, humidity and sweat, I had so much fun shooting Elen. We have made a pact that every 6 months we will find each other and do a shoot.

Hi Peter.
Thanks for showing images from the A7II, as we discussed briefly last we spoke. The Carl Zeiss lens must have also contributed to the definition that can be seen. It would be interesting to have seen some colour images as well, purely to see how the Sony managed the colour of the surroundings against the Model’s skin tones. ūüôā Look forward to viewing more of the Sony’s captures. Cheers, H.
