11 Mar New York City Professional Portrait | Cynthia Rose
Cynthia Rose is a couture designer who creates one of kind fashion pieces. She has a really discriminating eye and elevated aesthetic so it was with great pleasure that she chose us to shoot her portrait for her newly redesigned website. We agreed to shoot a variety of shots that she could use for website and press release purposes. We met at her place and quickly figured out the plan of attack. Her space was very lux and cleanly decorated so it was easy to spot several shooting vantage points. Not to mention the terrace! We set up the lights for a nice big beauty quality. I showed Cynthia what we were going for and she was very cool and relaxed in front of the camera and she took direction well. The first shot once we got going was done in about 15-20 minutes. A quick set and wardrobe change and we were off to the second shot. I had really wanted to do black and white on this shot as I feel that black and white lends itself to a more timeless quality, and that’s something Cynthia strives for in her designs. Again minutes into starting I knew we had the shot, it really all came together effortlessly. Once these images were done I wanted to capture some more casual, moody fashion portrait images. So we had Cynthia don a luxurious green coat and we stepped outside. The sun was very bright so I told her to put on her sunglasses and just go with it. Very cool shots, she looked every bit the rockstar she is! I was very happy with the whole shoot and so was Cynthia. Thanks for trusting us Cynthia with your image. And big thanks to the Abbe Aronson, the PR maven of Abbe Does it, for introducing us.
