I was in LA yesterday taking photos for Arsenic Magazine's "Spring Fling" photo shoot. This shoot was more fun than usual because my good friend/photographer Janet Vuong was hanging out on set shooting some behind the scenes stuff. She also let me borrow her Nikon D800 and play around with some of her lenses as well. I'm definitely feeling the need to upgrade soon. Here are some of the behind the scenes shots, I was able to snap a few of Janet as well.
This was my first attempt at shooting video on my own for a project. I was actually doubling as a photographer and videographer. While shooting stills was my primary focus on this shoot, I managed to squeeze in a bit of video as well. The shoot was for an Arsenic Magazine piece titled "Foreplay at Nelson J" at the Nelson J Salon in Beverly Hills. I shot all the footage using my Nikon D7000. The interviewer is the awesome Playboy Cybergirl of the Month, Dani Mathers. You can also check out the music video that was shot by Sawhorse LA while I was shooting stills for the magazine.
