Today, I launch my special series called “Faces”. Faces is a fun series shot in the studio with a simple plain background. So why faces? After a long wedding season last year, I got so bugged down with work load and wanted a series that was fun and at the same time would re-kindle my love for photography, I also wanted to put to work my studio strobes that only gets used if an engaged couple needs a studio shoot.
The shoot is simple with mostly no props or a very light prop in rare cases, I thought if it was prop based it would like too much like a photobooth. I will request certain facial expressions from my subject and shoot that expression and sometimes catch candid expressions in between. The shoot will mostly be in black and white so the focus is more on the facial expression.
For my launch, I reached to one of my favorite models/clients- The Nwankwo’s ladies. Ral came to the studio and delivered exceptionally and I’m sure she had as much fun as did. Look out for more in coming weeks.
