Last weekend I attended the FACE/OFF competition and party at the famous Smashbox Studios in West Hollywood. It's a big and fresh warehouse they've transformed into an enormous photo studio (almost like a hangar) where many of the covers and editorials you see in fashion magazines and other leading lifestyle papers are shot.
When I first walked into the building from a side entrance I walked through a gallery where all of the nominated photos in the competion were hanging. There are four categories: fashion, advertising, celebrity and editorial. I told my crew I thought the striking photo of a woman floating in a pool with a huge red fabric underneath her was my favorite and a possible first place candidate (later I heard the news that it had won).
