Award Shortlist   


By dannyrich
Last night I had an idea to vary the lighting on my headshot and aim for a lower key image with soft shadows.

Nicole has warm skin and hair tones and wanted to retain a warmth in the image.

Extremely pleased with this image and the way it turned out.

Thanks Debu/Dan

Was lit with a single light which was pleasing, often we over complicate things. Last night was designed to strip it back.
