photo of the YSL shoe above left was taken on a cloudy and misty winter day.
I was assigned to photograph 8 to 10 styles of shoes from top
fashion designers including Yves Saint Laurent and Chanel, for
W magazine. We moved around Paris and shot in different
spots with different props. I mostly shoot people, so when
I get an assignment like this, its fun and a challenge.
I decided that I wanted to do something special with the YSL pump
and utilized a technique that I'd been saving for years, just
as it turned out to use for this occasion.
