The Making Of A Cover Shot By Coco Rocha For Target

Coco Rocha shows us how many shots it takes to get a cover shot. The second 19 hit, I knew that was the one. It only took 19 attempts? That’s pretty amazing in itself. Then again, she’s a supermodel, what do you expect. 

Coco Rocha Pissed About Photoshopped Elle Brasil Cover

Coco Rocha has a policy which does not allow for partial nudity whatsoever, so after seeing this cover, she was appauled. 

Apparently, Coco was actually wearing a flesh colored body suit under the sheer dress, which the magazine saw fit to photoshop out, despite her instructions to do otherwise.

Coca noted on Tumblr: 

As a high fashion model I have long had a policy of no nudity or partial nudity in my photo shoots. For my recent Elle Brazil cover shoot I wore a body suit under a sheer dress which I now find was photoshopped out to give the impression of me showing much more skin than I was, or am comfortable with. This was specifically against my expressed verbal and written direction to the entire team that they not do so. I’m extremely disappointed that my wishes and contract was ignored. I strongly believe every model has a right to set rules for how she is portrayed and for me these rules were clearly circumvented.

Do you feel this id a huge deal? Who do you think is wrong or right in the matter? 

They clearly knew her stance on the matter, and could have hired anyone else as well. I’d like to hear your thoughts. 


Hasselblad Makes Toys Look Like Real People (Superman)

Now this is fantastic. It totally justifies my desire to buy a medium format now. As you can see, I’m finding any reason to buy one! 

Glenn Karlsen was able to tranform a toy into something fantastic. 

Coco Rocha, will you release a toy version of yourself so we can all shoot with you now?

Coco Rocha Gives Opportunity to Models

Supermodel, Coco Rocha, is giving an opportunity to models around the world. She writes:

Attention all aspiring models - Would you like to have your photos critiqued by some of the top personalities in fashion? Well, I have an exciting new project I’m almost ready to announce.

Please submit your name, age and photos to: - Stay tuned for more! Xx Coco

Whatever it is, it sounds like something that may be relevant to models who are interested. 

Spread the word!

The Lytro is Here

If you recall from earlier, there was a huge buzz about Lytro, the camera that has infinite focus after taking the image. It sounded unreal but it is now a reality.

Focus after the fact.
Since you’ll capture the color, intensity, and direction of all the light, you can experience the first major light field capability - focusing after the fact. Focus and re-focus, anywhere in the picture. You can refocus your pictures at anytime, after the fact. 

And focusing after the fact, means no auto-focus motor. No auto-focus motor means no shutter delay. So, capture the moment you meant to capture not the one a shutter-delayed camera captured for you.

It starts at $399 for an 8GB model and goes up to $499 for a 16GB model.

A neat little feature is that you can also save the experience for your friends by taking a shot and uploading it directly to facebook so they can play with it as well. 

The way it works is fascinating, it has lots of tiny lenses that capture light coming in from every angle thus producing the effect it does. 

To me, it seems like fun for a little while before it has any practical use. However, I could see this being used commercially. 

It was even used for a fashion shoot with the Coco Rocha

Here is a video of it in action and how to use it:
