Night Bright

7.18.2012




Vivian racerback cutout dress c/o One Rad Girl
Vera Wang platform sandals (last seen here). 

Micol and I are always looking for ways to switch things up on the blog. Whether shooting in novel locations and at new angles, or collaborating with other brands and photographers, the most incredible things seem to result when we take chances and get a little experimental. 

Inspired by some of the nighttime shots we've seen in the past from the likes of Inez and VinoodhGreg Kadel and Guy Arochwe've been talking about shooting at night for awhile now. But we never worked up the guts to do it until this past weekend, after we'd had a few drinks with some friends before heading out to dance at Brooklyn's local gay club Sugarland. Talk about a little liquid courage!

Normally you'd be hard-pressed to find me in a form-fitting minidress like this one. But the color and cut-outs had me sprung, the material is super-soft, stretchy and comfortable, and what better place to wear an outfit like this than in the company of gay men? At least, I think my boyfriend was relieved.

  4. I love the dress. I really like the first shot and the darker ones similar to the first one. I think those are great shots to be able to see the dress/outfit and have a artistic approach to. The 2nd and last one is def. perfect artistic photo effect.

  7. I love the dress - and the photography! I would never have the cajones (or the abs) to rock a dress like that, but Lauren wears it so well. Gotta love dancing nights at gay clubs :)

    1. Thanks! The spotlight effect can be done one of two way: use a snoot over your speedlight or use a spotlight photo filter in Photoshop. The lighter pics were taken at a slow shutter speed for effect.
