The goal of this project was to capture a dynamic yet beautiful portrait that showcases Southeast Asian features in both a dramatic and soft way.
There were a couple of creative solutions for this shoot. The first of which is the motion within the model's hair. As there was no fan in the studio this windswept effect was created by vigorously flapping a sketchbook just outside of frame. The model is backlit which aside from Godox flash was the only light within the studio. A bounce card was also positioned just outside of the frame to fill in some additional light to the model's left.
The photo is beautifully rendered and has a natural quality that accents the model's features that are a key part of her culture and ethnicity.
