Forget any mental images you may have of the swashbuckling fashion photographer. Sean Cunningham experiments with a new lighting technique backstage at a 2005 fashion show in Milan.

The fairly new New York Times photography blog, Lens, has an excellent post by Kristen Joy Watts titled Behind the Scenes: On and Off the Catwalk, a compilation of images by Dave Yoder from fashion shows over the past several years.
I highly recommend subscribing to the Lens blog’s RSS feed. Here’s what they say: “Lens is the photojournalism blog of The New York Times, presenting the finest and most interesting visual and multimedia reporting — photographs, videos and slide shows. A showcase for Times photographers, it also seeks to highlight the best work of other newspapers, magazines and news and picture agencies; in print, in books, in galleries, in museums and on the Web.”
We’ll post some of our other photography favorites in coming weeks.
