Artist's Description

Unedited image. Shot in my home studio against a grey backdrop.

I think this was Nikki’s first time in front of a camera like this and she seemed to have fun with it. I’ve got a bunch of photos of her doing various cute expressions with this hat but I liked the slightly mysterious nature of this one.

There is a flash behind her with a green gel over the front of it. Another photographer once tipped me off that throwing colours onto grey looked better than trying to throw colours onto a white background.

Some might say I could just shoot in front of white and add the colour later with Photoshop. The problem with that is you shift the effort to post-processing, which will probably take longer and not look as natural. Using a coloured light is infinitely simpler.
