When makeup artist, Jyoti Hanon, contacted us with the idea of shooting an Afro/Indian fusion look - we were intrigued. We weren’t sure what to expect but we knew she wanted something “strong”.
We got to the location and set up our backdrop and lighting as the model and Jyoti were finishing up some final touches. Once they were done, the sun was just starting to set. A window (with shutters that we couldn’t reach to shut) was hitting our set but we didn’t let it stop us. We used it to our advantage and took the top photo. As they like to say, “When life gives you a spotlight, make sure to shine so bright that even the shadows can’t dull your sparkle!” And this was evident with how Catherine’s skirt (provided by Crossover Bollywood Se) was glittering like stars. Once all the natural light exited the set, we used external lighting. We got into the groove and the ideas just started to pour!
Here are just some of our favorites from this shoot!
