Shot just over a week ago, as a last minute thing because I had been dying to shoot with Tony as he does amazing hair. The gorgeous Zara stepped in as a model at the last moment. I am still working my way through the other sets from the day, there was a LOT of hair so it is taking me a while to get through lol.
The main light was a medium softbox as we knew we wanted really soft lighting to match the hair and used a gridded strip box on the left to lift the shadows.
The backdrop was a large piece of wood that had been painted white but had a darker paint around the edges to give off texture. As you can see in the before and after shot I really pulled the textures out and then added just a little bit more to make the image pop.
As far as retouching goes I done a basic clean up on the skin, matched the face skin tones to the body then d&b’d on adjustment layers.

I absolutely adored working with these guys, my friend Hayley helped out for the first hair style (wait till you see it OMGHUGEEEE). There was no pressure, no expectations and it was fun. Happy Christeeny C:
