LG Fashion Week Day 2

Comments Off on LG Fashion Week Day 2

Once again media waited impatiently outside until approximately one hour before the first show.  We expected that all of the tape marking our spots would have been removed the night before, but miraculously it was still there.  With mutual respect among us photographers we took to our spots and decided this is how it would be for the week.

I set up my gear (D700 and 70-200 2.8 VR II) and thought about using the D300 instead to get more reach.  Although I had a good spot, the sweet spot in shooting the model in frame with my camera lens combo made for some distracting background.  I decided against the D300 last minute as I was shooting at ISO 1000 the night before and did not want the extra post work from the noise.  A 300mm 2.8 would have been perfect to go with the D700.  One day… Also regarding equipment, I decided this time to use a monopod and thank god I did for this day had 7 runway shows.

The lighting was all over the place today and the only time it was perfect was for the Shan show.  I get the whole mood that the designers are looking to incorporate in the shows but you think some great lighting would bring out the best of the designs for publications.  But wait..this is a show, not a photo shoot.  Anyway, us photographers bitched about the lighting for most of the day although most got fantastic images in the terrible light.

My body definitely took a beating on this long day and I had some serious leg cramps during a few shows.  Sitting on the Pelican case is not comfortable for any length of time!  Thanks to Ron for some food throughout the day to give some energy.

The images above are from my favourite designer of the day, Denis Gagnon.
