On Fire

Posted by
Colin at Eyeconic (Port Elizabeth, South Africa) on 8 October 2016 in People & Portrait and Portfolio.

Model : Sarah. Stylist : Cassey Nell. Makekup : Sam. From a set of photos I took at the 2016 Eastern Cape Hair Dressing Championships in Port Elizabeth. This was a wonderful opportunity to get shots of models that I would normally never work with individually as well as to have a chance to shoot highly creative portraits. The hairdressers that take part are absolute genuises and their creativity is amazing

@omid: Thank you. I am especially happy as I used only natural light. This spot was in a passage in the hotel with some overhead lighting and close to a large door that provided good side lighting. Backdrop is a piece of artwork that was hanging on the wall.

@L'Angevine: Thank you very much. The hair stylist did such a good job with the colours it made it very easy to end up with a good shot in the end

Beautiful locks of hair!! Before seeing your title, the first thing I said to myself was, "Look at those flames of fire!"
