I recently covered one of the shows organized by Sacramento Fashion Week. The show featured Emerging Fashion Designers and stylists in the area. I was very impressed with the caliber of the work exhibited. One of the designers/stylist that stood out was Winnie Stackz. There were a few of his looks that I wanted to explore a little more off the catwalk/runway. I was also evaluating some gear from Canon USA and thought this would be the perfect opportunity to put it through it’s paces.
A lot of Stackz’ looks have a very urban feel so I wanted to capture them with some of the amazing graffiti hidden around downtown Sacramento as a backdrop. I also wanted to incorporate the ‘in motion’ aspect of an urban setting into some of my shots. I thought this would take the looks from static and lifeless to more fluid and alive. The Models Jacqueline, Kevin and Anthony were perhaps the best part of this photo shoot. They were all as good-to-go as I have ever seen any model be. My best experience so far. Here are some highlights from our shoot.
For this shoot I used mostly the Canon 5D Mark III with the Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8 IS II USM lens.For the wider shots I used the 7D Mark II with the Canon EF-S 17-55mm f/2.8 IS USM. I also used the Canon EF 400mm f/2.8 IS II. The later is an an amazing piece of gear which I’ve had the pleasure of evaluating over the past few weeks courtesy of Canon USA. I will be posting my thoughts on that later. Here are some behind the scenes shots from our session in the alley way at sunset.
