Mociun Skirts

Last week I photographed a few of fashion designer, Mociun's beautiful skirts. There is nothing like the cool breezy feeling of wearing a light, airy skirt on a hot summer day! These skirts were definitely made to move!

"Just a Bunch of Intelligent Women with a Sense of Humor"

A lovely quote from Tina Fey about a shoot she did in 2004 for BUST Magazine made me think of a recent shoot I had with BUST. A section that a shoot for the quite frequently, Museum of Femorbilia, this time was about corsages. With help from stylist, Stephanie Hanes, art director, Erin Wengrovius, and of course my lovely model friends, Margot Cavin and Ross de Peloubet. We were able to pull this shoot off with minimal costs from Ross' dashing suit and Callie Watts' (BUST's Lovely "Crafty Lady") fabulous prom dress. It is always a pleasure to work with talented women with a passion for producing a publication with issues that women really want to talk about!

Tina Fey's quote in Bossypants was in reference to what she says was "her best Photoshop job ever from a feminist magazine called BUST in 2004." Before explaining the feminist Photoshop process she explains, "It was a low-budget shoot in the back of their downtown office. There was no free coffee bar or wind machine, just a bunch of intelligent women with a sense of humor." This feminist and fun atmosphere is why I always love being a part of the magazine and have had the pleasure to work with some really lovely and inspiring women.

Fey continues to recall the shoot when she asks "We're all feminists here, but you're gonna use Photoshop, right?" "Oh, yeah, they replied instantly."

"Feminists do the best Photoshop because they leave the meat on your bones. They don't change your size or your skin color. They leave in your disgusting knuckles, but they may take out some armpit stubble. Not because they're denying its existence, but because they understand that it's okay to make a photo look as if you were caught on your best day in the best light."

I was never a big fan of tie dye until I saw and photographed these limited edition designs by Shabd. Stylist, JoJo and I went with a ethereal and anthropomorphic feeling in contrast with an edgey more origami feeling to show the versatility and texture of Shabd's beautiful designs. Enjoy!
