Shooting Fashion Photos of Strangers on the Street

NYC-based photographer Dani Diamond took a V-Flat and his portrait skills out to the Jersey Shore and shot fashion photos of complete strangers he ran into. You can see the project and results in this 6.5-minute video by AdoramaTV.

After a passerby agreed to pose for a photo shoot, they were brought to the Pier Village boutique Molly & Zoey to get dressed in a fashion-forward outfit. Once the look was complete, the shoot commenced.

“What I was able to prove to myself from this project is regardless of skill for the model in front of the camera, an experienced photographer knows how to direct and make a subject feel comfortable,” Diamond tells PetaPixel. “I took complete strangers off the street who are not familiar with my work and never modeled before and I directed them through communication and connection to feel confident and look great.”

Gear-wise, Diamond was shooting with a Nikon D850, Nikon 85mm f/1.4G, Nikon 35mm f/1.4G, and a V-FLAT WORLD V-Flat.
