Z6: First time on a Times Square Billboard
116

I was contacted by a fashion designer to do a photo shoot in early March 2020 for a billboard that would be put up in Times Square. Then, the pandemic came and the release of the billboard was delayed until late September. Here is the resulting shot with the Z6 & Nikon 105mm f/1.4E lens.

Model: Madison Hilton & Maxine The Fashion Frenchie

Then, last week I went to go to Times Square to see it myself one night & I was trying to get the image with NYC style car streaks but I didn't have enough vehicular traffic to do so. If you're in the area, go see it yourself on W 48th St & 7th Ave.

Why is she wearing a bellybutton window?

Her attire makes it look to me like she has a bellybutton window.

Nice work Dez! I had an NYC billboard a few years ago - but it wasn't Times Square! Congrats!

Congrats Dez, takes me back to London's "Mayfair Mercenary" style of the late 1970s'.

Very well done /
