As I get an enormous amount of request for free shoots a new idea came to my mind, every month i will be giving away 1 free shoot with mua. The idea is that the applying models convince me with a special idea or special styling.

Qunneth approached me with the idea of combining her dark skin with a touch of color, MUA: Vanessa Cogorno

Front lit with 216cm PLM, back with standard reflector and medium size grid (both f:11)

After that we did some 3D photography ... :-p

(front light = Hensel parabolic)

And i experimented a bit with low-key and dark skin

I have to say that working with dark skin is very challenging in nailing a good exposure, i'm never happy with the results provided by my light-metering method and same post as for Caucasian , so Qunneth was an ideal candidate :-)

  1. It was a pleasure to work with you both on this project. Only experimenting, risking and thinking out of the box may turn things - in this case photos - a success!
