Life to Exhale by Richard Olsen

Currently unavailable for purchase

This is a follow up Picture of ‘Miss Death and Desire’ that was used to practice my colour grading skills in films. Following the 300’s style of colours, i used a green tint (which is used in the movie to help cover their green screen special effects CGI) It created an eerie modern femme fatal film noir look in this photo, which suits it very well. Hence the title.

Taken and edited by myself.
Modeled by my lovely Aisha
