Frederikke Olesen at New York Models
Le Image, Inc continues its outstanding work in fashion photography with our newest test shoot. Shot on the streets of Dumbo, New York, these fashion photos are not your typical spring outdoors photoset. With these test photos you feel the movement of the spring wind howling against the gritty industrial setting of the Brooklyn. This test shoot was shot using a medium format camera and Polaroid. Film photography may be tricky but the beautiful images we have captured using it is well worth it.
Our model, Frederikke Olesen, from New York Models was fabulous and gave us so many great shots. The 5’9 model was perfect against the crumbly and urban scenery of downtown. Originally from Copenhagen, Denmark, the stern beauty knows how to make a photo pop with her trademark withering glance. The pretty blue-eyed blonde first became signed to agency, Gossip Model Management, after being encouraged to go to an open casting by a family friend. Frederikke Olesen has walked runways for haute couture designers and has been featured in several magazine fashion editorials. We were lucky to shoot Frederikke as many New York fashion photographers try to book her everyday.
Shooting outside of our Brooklyn photo studio can be very inspiring especially during the gorgeous time of year. It can be a bit more daunting for a fashion photographer to use film outdoors, as you have to be very precise about achieving the correct exposure. Another development that we are very excited about is bringing in color to our test shoots. Our high-end aesthetic combined with our choice of color palettes present some very exciting possibilities, indeed. New York fashion photography is always changing in terms of trends and what’s cool but the beauty of our test shoot photos is timeless.
