I know I touched on this event before, but this event really was important to me. It was my dream event to shoot someday and I couldn't believe I was credentialed to shoot inside the tents. To be qualified you needed to have had two photos "Fashion Photos" published in the last 6 months. I got one right under the wire with Victoria Beckham, which was published in LOOK UK in December. I had always want to shoot the Red Dress event, as it was one of the first events I my "Fan" friends took me to see after I moved to NYC. So to actually be there that Friday morning two weeks ago to shoot it was just a dream come true for me.
I had never shot a "fashion show" before and thankfully spent the night before doing a lot of research. I learned that the lights were "hot" enough to shoot without a flash. That's exactly what I did. As we go further in the week you will see the difference when I used flash, and when I realized that it was entirely too bright to do so. The photos came out great without the flash. Here is Jenna Fischer from The Office.
Rita Moreno a latina legend, in fact a legend period. I got chills just watching her come down the red runway
The finale and all the girls
Sadly when Camryn Manheim walked the runway the first time I had no idea it was her and I didn't really take any photos. I really have to get those bifocals - lol
The last act. Although I can't stand W, I was thrilled to see Laura Bush in person. Why she wore white on "Red Dress Day" just baffles my mind.
