Cloudy Crosswinds

Inception …

This shoot wasn’t planned in depth, as i had only some basic ideas of where i wanted to go with it … and it was planned for an indoors location. It was supposed to take place after my birthday “party” was over , but , as fate would have it we ended up partying much more than anticipated, and we also slept in till noon. The photo shoot was canceled.

Subject and Idea …

My subject is a rather hardcore hip-hop fan but also very sensitive and feminine … clearly those two don’t mix and match very well, and just by speaking to her you get the feeling that there is a battle deep within over what part should take over. I had planned Β a more illustrated approach for this shoot and ended up never doing it due to lack of time … but … walking along the seaside ( taking in the sights ) we ended up in a parking lot overlooking the sea that was being converted into a plaza, there war hardly any people around due to the really bad weather ( cloudy and extremely windy ) … so it kind of hit me … a rather metaphorical approach to that inner battle … crosswinds.

The shoot …

Given the highly windy condition , and the lack of manpower i had to use bare strobes and exposed her face as close as possible without loosing too much information anywhere else. Retouching took a couple of hours.

I hope y’all like it, cheers.
