Genlux Magazine “Crown Jewels”
The assignment was to shoot an editorial for Genlux Magazine for their Spring Fashion Issue and the theme was Travel. I love black and white and since I was to shoot “pieces” for this issue, I thought black and white would tell the story well. “Pieces” are just that! The skirt or the jacket or the shirt as oppose to dramatic, lavish evening gowns. Stephen loved the idea and so we went ahead and prepped the shoot. We decided that we were going to shoot this story in a studio where I could control my lighting. We used Jelly from Ford Models who I have to say is just the best model! I love the way she moves and her attitude, plus she’s just a knockout! I used my Nikon D2Xs camera with my

Go ahead and watch the video. It’s shorter than the other ones and yes…..we know the sound sucks! We’re getting another camera! Also, just a side note and a heads up here: I know I don’t post my shoots that often and the only reason for that is that I cannot post pictures or videos of a shoot that hasn’t been published yet. It would seem that I don’t shoot that often because I don’t post my shoots that often. The thing is, I shoot months in advance for shoots. Editorials are sometimes shot 4 months ahead of publishing. If I were to publish the pictures from that editorial, the magazine would not only make me take down the pictures, they would probably never use me again. I know you guys want to see it all and I don’t blame you! I am just not allowed to show anything until the magazine hits the newsstands or the ad campaign is up and running.
Also, as if you can’t tell already, I am SO camera shy. I know, paradoxical. Whatever. I chose to be behind the camera instead of in front of it for a reason. And I have also noticed that when I am in the middle of shooting, my left brain goes into paralysis and I can’t speak well. It’s like I can’t articulate what I’m thinking or what I’m trying to convey. I go into a zone and concentrate on capturing that moment that’s going to get THE Shot! So sit back, be kind, (lol) and watch the Spring Fashion Editorial video!
