California Chic

I participate in many online sites to ensure that my photography skills continue to grow.  There is nothing better than a creative group of peers to keep you motivated.  One of my favorite sites is Chic Critique Forum.  They even have a wonderful magazine aptly named CHIC.  When they announced they needed an image for their cover, and that they like to showcase images with a fashion editorial feel (i.e. Vogue, Elle, W)  I thought of the image below right away. 
This fantastic session was with a fab NYU student who happened to be in California for spring break.  I loved it that she wasn't afraid to try something different, and so we created this great gown out of tulle and window screen and "hit the town".  It was a tad chilly in San Jose that day, but thankfully this resilient gal was used to New York weather and we had an amazing time.

Be sure to visit Chic Magazine to see the other entries in the contest as well. There are quite a few talented photographers that have already submitted, and since the contest is open until the end of Feb, I'm sure there will be quite a few more!
