Remember the silhouette shoot with Josanne? If you are interested you can find a news message about it here: Silhouettes with Josan. In that message I told you about my inspiration for that shoot and that it was triggered by a lady with beautiful afro style curly hair. And that Josanne was a great model which gave us fantastic results but with straight style of hair. So not exactly what I had envisioned.
But now I have finally created the image that I had in my mind for the last couple of years. I had a studio shoot with teenage model Fariël. A few days before the shoot I asked her mother to send me a picture of her current hair style to be prepared for the shoot. And then she sent me a picture of Fariël and I couldn’t believe my eyes. She had exactly the hair style that I had in mind for that silhouette shoot.
So beside the originally planned shoot I did a silhouette shoot with Fariël as well. And I am thrilled with the results. The images came out exactly as I had pictured in my mind a few years ago. It is a great feeling to accomplish and idea that is floating through your mind for a long time.
Here are some of the results:
For this shoot I used only one strobe with a very large rectangular softbox and an edge mask. That’s it.
And now a very big thank you to Fariël for being such a great model. You did a fantastic job.
