POINT AND SHOOT

September 12, 2014

4th and Bleeker

BEFORE YOUR WEEKEND STARTS AND I CATCH MY FLIGHT BACK TO NEW YORK IN AN HOUR, I WANT TO TALK ABOUT WHAT I'VE BEEN WORKING ON DOWN UNDER IN SYDNEY AS A GUEST OF VOGUE AND OLYMPUS TO TRY OUT THEIR NEW CAMERA THE E-M10 FOR VOGUE FASHIONS NIGHT OUT. THEY TOLD ME IT WAS GREAT AND THEY SAID YOU CAN TAKE A SELFIE ANYWHERE (THANKS TO THE ADJUSTABLE SCREEN) AND THEN WIFI IT TO YOUR PHONE. NATURALLY I WAS HESITANT... NOT JUST BY THE WORD "SELFIE" BUT BECAUSE I AM VERY PARTICULAR ABOUT MY CAMERAS AND THE IMAGES THEY PRODUCE. I HAVE ALSO NEVER ENDORSED ANYTHING THAT I DON'T FULLY BELIEVE IN AND HAVEN'T BOUGHT MYSELF. BUT THEY WERE RIGHT. IT IS GREAT. AND WHILE I SEE THE IMPORTANCE OF A GOOD SELF PORTRAIT AS MUCH AS THE NEXT GIRL, I WANTED TO TAKE "THE SELFIE" FEATURE ONE STEP FURTHER AND SHOOT AN ENTIRE EDITORIAL OF THE DESIGNERS INVOLVED IN FASHION'S NIGHT OUT AND SEE HOW THE CAMERA HOLDS UP IN TERMS OF SERIOUS SHOOTING AND IF IT COULD IMPRESS MY BROTHER WHO IS A VERY GOOD PHOTOGRAPHER. IT DID. ON BOTH COUNTS. HE ACTUALLY TRIED TO TAKE IT FROM ME SEVERAL TIMES. SO IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR A NEW POINT AND SHOOT THAT HAS FEATURES YOU NEVER KNEW YOU NEEDED BUT NOW CAN'T LIVE WITHOUT THEN CHECK THIS ONE OUT. BISOUS! PHOTOGRAPHED BY BYRON SPENCER AT LUXE STUDIOS IN SYDNEY. ALL IMAGES PAINTED ON BY PAULY BONOMELLI OF HIMUMIMDEAD 1. LOUIS VUITTON 2. H&M STUDIO 3. ZIMMERMANN 4. H&M STUDIO 5. BURBERRY 6. GUCCI 9. PRADA 10. GUCCI AND OLYMPUS E-M10.
