Behind the Scenes

Photos and Time Lapse by Kevin Burg

Shoot days are whirlwinds. Kevin thought it would be fun to shoot a time-lapse of Ann Street over a couple of days to show the flow of people, props, and equipment in and out of the studio. It’s kind of fun to observe: if you watch carefully you see my Inaugural Ball gown from Oscar de la Renta arrive, our BBC interview take place and a little dance party with our friend, stylist, and creative partner Kelly.

Also, how beautiful is our makeup artist Porsche Cooper? She shows up even at 5am call times in lashes and a lip, and in-between shots we talk about diamonds, yachts and champagne. She is, in one word, FABULOUS. She also gave everyone makeovers and cheekbones in our lunch break.

Hasselblad H4D-31 medium format digital camera with 80mm f/2.8 HC lens.

The camera captures 31 megapixel images on a medium format sensor which holds larger pixels, increasing the color resolution in gradated areas. Plus it makes the greatest shutter sound. The only downside I found shooting with it is the ISO noise; the image really fell apart over 400 ISO. I shot the story at 100 ISO because I wanted completely noise-free images.

Model Casting

Black & White behind the scenes film imagery shot by Carly Piersol for Ann Street Studio

I love model casting days, to me it’s so inspiring because each girl is her own story – a sea of endless possibilities. Every photo shoot starts with a vision. For designer Misha Nonoo’s “Once Upon a Time“, we wanted to tell a story of a young banished princess, childlike and beautiful, nymph-like and wild. When you cast, you watch carefully, looking for that perfect muse who will bring your vision to life. And then when you see her, you know.

It’s just like falling in love…

Once upon a Time…

Shot at Ann Street Studio on January 19, 2013

Once upon a time in a land far, far away, a young princess was banished from her home, the mystical kingdom. Swept away from the only life she knew, she could only dream of what she once had in the beauty of the woods. As the butterflies fly and the flower petals fall, so it mirrors the seasons of our life, the choices we make and the beauty that emerges in the darkest of places. With gowns imagined by Nonoo and handpainted by de Gournay,  she takes us into the woods and takes hold of our hearts…
