LG Fashion Week Day 5

Comments Off on LG Fashion Week Day 5

Finally got some half decent sleep as the first runway show on the last day did not start until 6pm.  This also gave me some time to continue with my edits and to take a more detailed look at some of the shows I shot during the week, performing the usual selection and edit process.  I was shooting jpeg all week thus far (client output was for web only) and I was quite happy with the images.  There were only a couple of times where I wish I’d shot RAW where highlights were concerned but overall the jpeg images held up quite well.  I did shoot one show on this day in RAW and the final output exceeded the jpeg in colour depth but only slightly. But for what the images were going to be used for, it was really unnecessary for me to shoot in RAW (I’m sure I’ll hear about this from other photographers).  I also thought again about using the D300 but changed my mind at the last minute.  I definitely want to rent a 300mm 2.8 lens for the next time I shoot LG Fashion Week.

I was also lucky enough to shoot the last show right beside George Pimentel.  People moved around and several photographers were absent on the last day so in I slipped right beside the man.  We had exchanged a few words during the week but we did not say one word as we shot the last show.  Regardless, it was a moment for me to shoot beside someone I respect and used to watch on t.v. years ago and it was a nice way to end the week.

So there you have it.  Another season shooting LG Fashion Week and in many ways I loved it.  I met many great photographers and reconnected with photographers from last season.  I also noticed more politics this time around and for this reason it made it less fun.  No details I’ll just leave it at that. Anyway, special thanks to all the photographers especially Raymond, Ron, Steve, Sean, Allan, Kevin, Rocco and Don for your generosity, conversation, and overall great vibe to make the week more fun.
