Brooklyn Parker by Samantha Gordon photographed at Nossi College of Art

I had the opportunity to be a part of a recent “Battle of the BUFF-est” video for Paul C. Buff, Inc., along with two of my Nossi College of Art classmates! We were challenged by Paul C. Buff, Inc. to create fashion images using clothing that we had purchased at a secondhand store.

I love creating fashion and commercial images, and this challenge allowed me to not only showcase my style as a photographer, but also pushed me into thinking on my feet and working with what I have. I’m so glad I started my journey into studio lighting with the AlienBees. The accuracy and versatility is great, and the analog controls are so easy to use!
