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.
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
Supermodel, Coco Rocha, traveled to Haiti recently.
In February Coco Rocha, Behati Prinsloo and a small team of friends traveled to Port-au-Prince, Haiti. They brought with them letters from hundreds of people around the world, in effort to not only lift spirits but to make the world a smaller place.
FLARE is partnering with Coco Rocha to premiere her Letters To Haiti documentary in Toronto tonight. The film documents Rocha and fellow model, and BFF, Behati Prinsloo’s trip to the island nation last year on behalf of LakayPAM, a non-profit that aids orphans and other children in Haiti.
We’ll be screening the documentary right here tonight at 8 p.m. Eastern, so bookmark this page or check in at flare.com/cocorocha to watch.
