Walking in Central Park with Vincent Versace

Renowned fine art and commercial photographer Vincent Versace was in NYC this week conducting workshops with B&H Photo. On Tuesday he led a photo walk in Central Park with a model. So I had to go check it out to see what wisdom he’d impart.

We shot with natural light as well as Wescott’s Ice Lights, which are daylight balanced wand-like lights. They provide beautiful lighting and with a set of barn doors to channel the light are incredibly useful.

Here are some images I made on the shoot of our model, Francesca. The images were edited in Photoshop CC and then converted to B&W in Topaz Labs’ BW Efex 2 plugin. Camera is a Nikon D800. All the vertical images were photographed with a Nikon Micro-Nikkor 105mm f/2.8, which is a fantastic portrait lens; the horizontal image was shot using a Nikon 28-70mm f/2.8 lens.

As you’d expect from a founding Nikon Ambassador, and someone with about 4 decades behind the lens, Versace is very knowledgable — and also very funny! It was a pleasure spending time with him on this outing on a number of levels.
