We're working on a secret fashion project. Now, doesn't that sound exiting and grabs your attention right there?
It does, and sorry about that, but I promise to return later with more on this. However, working on this project also lead me to shooting a series of images in London last week, with model Shilpa Shaw wearing Bøgelund-Jensen designs from Denmark. The former Dior-designer Signe Bøgelund-Jensen recently caught fame as one of the interesting looks on "The Worlds Longest Catwalk" (a 1600 meter long catwalk) as part of the Copenhagen Fashion Week.

We mainly used the new Leica 120mm Summarit-S ASPH Macro f/2.5 lens on the also pretty new Leica S2 medium format camera, resulting in 37.5 MP digital files with unprecedented detail and sharpness.

I also used the Leica M9 with 90mm and 50mm lenses for those photos where atmosphere was more important than the details and three-dimensional feel that the Leica S2 provides. But all light was natural available light helped with silver and gold reflectors (we also did studio photos with daylight filmgear, but that is another story).
Another shot from the series, this one with the Leica M9 and Leica 90mm Summarit-M f/2.5.
