This image was taken in a dark basement with available light from a small window. The background was an old and dusty curtain. The model is a Montreal actress, and the make-up was done by a mutual friend. Proof that beauty doesn’t need complicated settings to shine.
I love to photograph wedding. Specially when everything comes together to create a special moment. Being at the right place in the right moment is essential to capture such a moment.
My friend told me once that she hated the commercial side of Christmas. So, she ordered a Santa suit, made false gift boxes and got a very dry dead tree in the forest. It’s a simple set-up, one flash on her and the rest is illuminated by the burning tree. Wich burned in about 10 seconds. So much fun!!
