I am very excited to share one of my favourite photographs in a long time. It is the main cover of Harper's Bazaar Ukraine March issue with the beautiful model Crista Cober @ NEXT Management.
I have used broncolor Picolite 1600 Watt/Second Lamphead with Projection Attachment to lighten one part of the face, then changed the lip color and used it on another part of the face. It was important to keep the same shooting distance to maintain the same proportions of the face. I used the Picolite with a Scoro power pack 3200 E. With the help of the modelling light, I was able to see the exact edges of the light. Afterwards I combined two images in postproduction.
To lighten the background I placed Strip Softboxes (30x120cm) on Siros' on each side facing the white wall.
Exposure 1/350 sec at f/16 ISO 100
