This week's shot came from a photoshoot with Tawan from Bangkok. Shot at a cool location in Singapore with great natural light - even though I had strobes & reflectors to hand, in the end I didn't need any of it. I wanted a grungy, street kind of vibe. Edgy but vulnerable at the same time.
In the back of my mind I was practicing for some upcoming photoshoots for musicians so I knew I wanted to experiment with different compositions & not just go for straight-up portraits.
Processing was relatively straightforward and after applying basic adjustments like sharpening & noise reduction I then took the image into Color Efex Pro. Flicking through the presets I found one that was 90% of what I was looking for and took it from there. The toning was chosen to contrast with her skin tone and helped give the urban feel I wanted. With that, job done!
It was a really fun photoshoot & Tawan was an excellent model. Here's a few more images from the shoot.
