When I get it into my head that I must work on my craft. I begin brainstorming ideas upon ideas of the aspects of photography that I need to learn more about. This shoot was all about learning the ins and outs of ‘low-key’ lighting. Assisted on hair/makeup by my dear friend and amazing artist, Peal Espinoza, we took it upon ourselves to create something special. Lauren, with Wilhelmina Models in Los Angeles, was our muse – and led by a sultry soundtrack courtesy of ‘The Civil Wars’ this was what we created.
