I’ll admit that I’m probably more comfortable shopping for couture than sitting in a sports bar. I’d rather be at Fashion Week than the Super Bowl. I can tell you when the fall collections debut in Paris, but I’m not entirely sure how many players are on the ice at any given time.
I was never much of a still life photographer. Not so much for the fruit in a bowl. But I find it very interesting to make a compelling photograph of shoes. It’s a challenge to come up with an idea and a composition that feels fresh.
I was shooting with one of my new models this year and opening up box after box of shoes until she removed the cover off a pair of Roberto Cavallis and I could see by the look on her face the search was over. There’s nothing more fun to watch than a woman try on a pair of shoes she loves. And she loved these.
The thing I like most about this photo is that the way it’s composed it takes both shoes to get a full picture of one. I like letting part of the subject leave the frame. And since the other shoe fills in the blanks, it’s a photograph that makes you work a little, but not too hard.
And that makes the ”special” even more so.
