This is a cut from some footage I discovered buried in a hard drive folder. Early last year I had the chance to shoot a non-profit event featuring a number of rather elegant models and talented hair and make-up personnel. I remember that there was an extremely fun mood in the air.As a result I've grown very fond of shooting behind-the-scenes (BTS) footage. n terms of this second we hit the mark. I'm completely satisfied. I experimented here and there with some aspects of color and this was all shot hand-held with a Canon 7D and I believe two lenses including, if I recall correctly, a Ziess 85 mm fixed lens.The legendary Dionne Warwick came out to support this event, which was organized to help galvanize a health related initiative for women in East Africa. I believe we had several legends in the room. A tremendous shout out goes to Ali Muhammed from Hustlevision and Tamecca Tillard for inviting me to come out and shoot this event. I wanted to feature some of the people that do such incredible work behind the camera. And so in terms of personnel we had Makeup Artists' Torrence Forde, John Guanlao, Alyn Martin and Hair with Antwon Jackson. A thank you also goes out to Steven Littles, Camille Evans, and Richard Pelzer. Merci as well to Make-up Forever and MAC Cosmetics and Iman Cosmetics.
