John Prine, Nashville 1991 for Rolling Stone
RIP John Prine. Dead at 73 from complications related to COVID-19. Prine was one of my favorite portrait subjects. I shot this portrait for Rolling Stone in his Nashville home using a single 500 watt tungsten spotlight. After the shoot he invited me to stay for turkey dinner and Monday night football. He was a true artist and a lovely human who will be missed by all who met him.
Behind-the-Scenes photo by Vanity Fair Deputy Editor Kira Pollack shows Mark Seliger shooting the October Vanity Fair Cover of Felicity Jones with a Sony a7R III & FE 24-70mm F2.8 G Master lens.
Kira also shared this black & white image from the shoot:
This Behind-the-Scenes video of Annie Leibovitz shooting an advertising campaign for Lincoln Continental shows her shooting with Sony FE 24-70 F4 on a Sony mirrorless camera that I’m guessing is a7RII.
Let’s be honest, Annie can make art with any camera you put in her hands, but shooting Sony mirrorless on a major ad campaign puts her in very good company with legendary photographers like Neil Leifer, Raymond Meier and White House Presidential Photographer Pete Souza.
