behind the scenes – part 2 "the park" BTS collection shoot at Coney Island

What we love about Coney Island, and what reminds me personally of my time in California is the freak show and the gritiness of it all. Venice beach is similar in that it has a grit behind the sun and the sand, something is just a bit off, but in a good way. Sometimes twisted things yield something beautiful, and we hope our photoshoot did… ps. we tried to shoot in front of the freak show where they had a stage but they weren’t too friendly, we did get some great shots of the wall paintings off to the side, it wasn’t the shot we were hoping for but let us know what you think!

At this point in the shoot it was well into the afternoon and we have moved now to the amusement park, I’m sure you can picture the crowds and the potential hazards to a photograph. Some were cute like a little girl that came and tried to pose next to Susan as she modeled… we might share that later in a follow up post along with some more amusing moments caught by Josh as he captured the craziness behind the scenes of this photoshoot… grab some cotton candy and settle in for part 2 of Between the Sheets Collections shoot with Insuh yoon and Susan Coffey.

Hell yes we picked up some fans, this gentleman was asking what we were doing and very interested in finding out where the shots would be, when I told him they wouldn’t be out until early in the new year he seemed quite upset…

Kind of wish we had a shot just like this with just susan, her hands make an adorable heart!

We were aiming to get a shot with susan and the infamous cyclone at it’s peak… easier said than done, when it was up maybe there were people walking by, then maybe a cloud, and then a car… it was the middle of the day after all. The final shot was pretty fabulous actually…
