Portrait #002 - Melissa
I love the high contrast look of a beauty dish with a grid. There is something magical about the deep shadows and rich highlights. But it takes some work to maneuver the lights, camera and the posing angles to find a way to soften the intensity of this particular lighting style.
It helps when your model looks like she belongs in a film noir. Really works with this aesthetic.
Had a great time shooting with the enchanting, Melissa Way. Can't wait till our next shoot!
