My friend Kristine (the one in all white) is starting up a line called Hard Couture, and she had photographer Kevin Russ help her take some shots for a look book. I'll definitely show you guys her stuff once she gets more pieces, but she promised me a black laced cape. And uhh, those words together are just perfect.

It was pretty awesome working with Kevin because I really couldn't get over how awesome his work turned out. It was around 8pm when we started shooting, and it was DARK! We were in the middle of nowhere, so there were definitely no streetlights. He mostly used one hand throughout the shoot, with no flash and no tripod. Even with the minimal lighting, he was able to get a still shot with one hand. Kudos, man... kudos. His stuff here: Flickr
