I was very excited to shoot the lovely Vera Farmiga for the cover of this weeks Village Voice. Vera just had her directorial debut, Higher Ground, in NYC last week with & met with rave reviews. Our shoot was a calorie burning photo sprint from 11:45am – 12pm, the energy was upbeat and we had a great time. Vera is the embodiment of loveliness & it was a privilege to photograph her. John Dixon, Art Director extraordinaire, wanted to do some tight cropped headshots for the cover, so we played around with light patterns, selective focus and angles in about 7 minutes before moving on to the next environment. John and the Village Voice are always incredible to work with and I really love shooting for them.
Below are some behind the shots of our quick shoot.
