Urban Girls Garage Sale

Fashionistas united from all over Seattle for the first ever Urban Girls Garage Sale! UGGS is a pop-up shop, started by Zong Her, connecting local sellers with local buyers.

I started by photographing the vendors and all their goods during the VIP portion, before the doors opened to the general public.  I used a speedlight with a diffuser, kept my ISO low and embraced the colorful fashion of Seattle.

To help separate the different parts of the event (the vendors and the buyers) I wanted to take more of a journalistic approach when showing the shoppers indulging themselves in the hunt for the perfect fashion find.  I lost the flash, cranked up the ISO to give me some grain (I really didn't have a choice, because there was no light in this place), and went with black and white during post.
