Editorial – Photos of the Day

I was interviewed by a young photo student today on editorial photography doing a project for the Hallmark Institute of Photography.  And I just got an email from a second student from the same school so I guess projects are due this week!

Anyhow, it reminded me of one of my first published stories.  These were the only 2 shots I could find from a big Cover story I had for 944 Magazine.  The photo of the cover I actually had to track down on the model’s Flickr page.  The model is Natasha Komis and you have seen her in some pretty hot American Apparel Ads.  She is now a pretty successful singer and you can hear her music on her MySpace page.

The photo was taken in Times Square with a Hasselblad 503CW camera and an 80mm lens.  I believe I was using Fuji Provia Slide film rated at 400 speed.  My exposure was something like 1/125sec at F4 with a flash into a small umbrella.
