Every year I like to create a group project. This year’s theme is "Tony’s Angels." Yes, I am a very possessive artist who claims my subjects as mine and do with it as I please. The secret is to treat them right and you will get everything you ask for in return. I have hand picked every one of these Angels who I’ve loved working with and getting to know. Each Angel has a unique personality and they all mesh together like a crazy fun family. Don’t be fooled by their sweet looks, when you put them all together, all the perversions and naughty thoughts come out and play. Are they really Angels? That’s for me to know.
I introduce you to the Angels at our very first slumber party, filled with candy, pillows, and a very happy Panda. Every family has fights, but we eventually kiss and makeup. We might have gone overboard…
Many thanks to Jonathan for his amazing penthouse location, enigMatt for the behind-the-scene video coming soon, Jenn Kang for her amazing makeup skills, and Ruby for pimping out Panda to us. For behind the scene photos, follow me on Instagram @tonyyangphotography or Facebook.
Angela: Goddess of the group with a sweet and soft face, she may be the only real innocent Angel!
Amy: Not only is she a mixed Angel, she brings both the sweet and naughty sides out.
Christiana: Playful bunny who brings the energy and life into the family, and her looks rock our socks!
Phiorella: The drop dead gorgeous Peruvian Angel that always wants to come out and play.
Kyla: The youngest but boldest Angel. Nothing will stop her from being sexy!
Kyla Gray: Bombshell Angel with a killer body that makes you want to beg for more.
This past weekend was supposed to be a great night for a meteor shower, so I took a late night drive up Palisades Parkway to 9W through Black Rock Forest in New York and stopped at a lookout. It was nearly pitch black with a hint of city lights in the distance. Unfortunately while I was busy setting up the camera and taking photos, I missed the few shooting stars that my friend witnessed.
The photos are all single exposures, taken with a Canon 16-35mm 2.8L on a full-frame body, 30 second exposures with a remote. The foreground was lit by the iPhone flash and the lens was manually focused. It’s a good idea to take multiple photos with slightly different focusing distances in case you misfocus the first photo.
She was a guest at the wedding, her fierce eyes pierced me like a harpoon and I could not escape her grasp. Every moment was spent trying to get another glimpse of her, maybe she noticed, hopefully not. Like a prey deathly afraid of it’s predator, I dare not approach her but always kept her in my peripheral sight. I escaped unscathed, yet gained nothing, or so I thought.
Days pass and I could not cease thinking about the beauty I’ve witnessed, and by request the bride gave me permission to reach out. Beyond expectations, she accepted my invitation. She risked following me into the unknown, and surfaced in love with the art we had created together. The harpoon remains embedded in me, I don’t want to be free. I wait for the day I am completely pulled aboard and share the same path.
