New York Fashion Week Photo Shoot in Central Park

Between Shows with Lydia

greggcestaro.com It was a wonderful opportunity to have the chance to work with good friend and model Lydia during this September’s New York Fashion Week. We have been shooting together for some 4 years now in Texas and to work with her again in her new haunt in NYC having been signed by an agency was very exciting. You can see a lot of her stuff in past posts below. Nevertheless, I had a chance, in-between shows at Lincoln Center, to meet up with her at the Bethesda Terrace in the middle of Central Park to do a quick little self styled one outfit editorial. It was a perfectly cloudy day with a cool breeze and the architecture was amazing. It was pretty crowded too, but people seemed to give us space which was appreciated. I had traveled light to the shoot, being already set up for available runway lighting. So, I had to take advantage of the cloudy sky which created an even, no highlights palette which lend itself to soft well toned images. I also shot primarily with my new 70-200 2.8 runway lens which really made the background blur and upfront focus perfect. We started off working the walks and pass-bys in full body street-style at different locations, up and down stairs, and what not. Then we changed it up to focus on her feather jacket used in different ways, closing in closer and closer to get cover worthy headshots. We got tons more shots, but these tell the story. Before I knew it was time to go back to the show, but we managed to knock out a pretty cool editorial at a location, that for me, was a once in a lifetime moment (at least until next year)
