So last thursday my plan was to sleep, wake up, eat, then take pictures of myself, all in the laziest fashion ever. In the middle of turning over, I got a text from Bretony, one of my personal favorite models, to come shoot her and another model I’ve been wanting to shoot, Mickey, out in Central Park. It hurt to break from my extensive, all important plans but it was a great day out and my camera looked at me like a dog wanting to be walked and really, it’s hard to say no to two models. Let alone find out I’ll be introduced to Shatara, making it 3 models. Definitely better than my original plan.
Made my way to Central Park and met all 3 girls by the swings. We decided to shoot right there and it was on. Great shoot, and as an added bonus, no one fell off the swings…definite plus. After we got our full of that area we moved and ended up under one of the tunnels, where Shatara had to leave but Bretony and Mickey stayed and we went to work. It was the 2nd time I shot 2 girls together and just like the last time, (which you could see on the site) it turned out great.
The day was far from over for us though. Bretony and Mickey had another shoot to go to with a photographer by the name of Joni, this one in Times Square. I decided to tagged along, Right under shooting my own work, I love looking at photoshoots in the making. This one in particular though, was an eye pleaser for alot more people than me. The shoot was smack in the middle of busy Broadway, about a block or two from the Times Square Toys R’ Us. Joni wanted the girls posing in the middle of the crowd. This brought all attention to us, having the camera ready tourist snapping away, maybe even more than the photographer herself. To cause such a spectacle was great, I felt like I was managing super models or something. One of the highlights was when a guy passing out flyers for some show joined in taking photos with the girls…and for those couple of moments he was there he stole the show! Stepping out in front of the girls he did more than pose….he damn near vogued. It was definitely entertaining. From there the girls and Joni shot through the streets, leading to the 42nd train station, causing a scene as we made our way.
It was a great day but we were all definitely tired, and as a reward we got ourselves some Red Lobster, which was my introduction to the glory that is known as….cheddar biscuits. Good lawl!
Below are some shots throughout the day…a mixture of sneak peeks, behind the scenes, and bloopers. As you should know by now, my actual shoot once completed can be seen at Evangelphoto.com, while you could see more of Bretony on her youtube page, Mickey on her twitter, and Shatara on her twitter.
