Tokyo Shoot Two

Pro Tip: See this shot on my flickr here, you should also add me as a contact there & follow me on twitter even if it’s just to abuse me.

With a new outfit & new location in Tokyo I wanted to create a shot with a completely different feel to the previous — something that was more appropriate to the classy new look. I took advantage of the large amount of ambient light from the skylight above & two chandeliers behind. I then added a single strobe to the left side in a softbox which added depth to the model & a little separation from the background.
