BUN 2012 Sesso Collection with Jennyfleur Loves & Rogue

These are photos from another of Vernard's events that I shot for "The Sociables" @  It was the BUN Sesso 2012 Collection with Jennyfleur Loves & Rogue Fashion Shows.  The venue was Chinois in Yaletown.

This assignment was for a collaborative blog of city adventurers called "The Sociables" @  I've been shooting fashion shows for quite a bit now so I knew exactly what to bring.  I brought out the Canon EOS 5D Mark II + Canon 70-200 2.8 IS II, and the Canon 580 EXII flash.

Lens choice: for this shoot, I was primarily concerned with capturing the jewelry .  Ofcourse it's a part of the overall look, but there are going to be a dozen other photographers taking those photos.  And it also means when a colleague accidentally happens to stand in front of my spot to take his photos, I can just shoot over his head (thanks to smaller angle of view).  So I went with a tele zoom with shallow depth of field to shoot those necklaces, because the dress and shoes are the accessories here.

Flash:  This place is way too dark to pull off that Club 560 thing using directional lights on location.

Camera body: I brought a full frame body in case I was too close to the front (as opposed to the 7D and the crop factor), which I was.  And I also wanted some shots of the designers and it'll look awkward if I went across the room to take it.  The problem of course is the focus accuracy.  It just means I gotta take more shots.

Also, I didn't bring any other lenses since I had no intention of doing the media wall or backroom stuff.  I brought an extra battery in the pocket but that was it.

Most of the photos were taken at f/2.8, ISO-160 at 1/100s.  I could have went with a lower shutter speed (the flash would freeze the action) but the background actually lead in to the kitchen, and illuminated the pots and stuff.  I decided to go with a dark background instead.
