For week two of the 10 week challenge, I grabbed my DSLR, which I got a year ago, but have been too afraid to do anything significantly significant with it because, well, I am no Jim Chuchu, or Mutua Matheka. I'm surrounded by a ton of epic photographers in my life and to be honest, I feel massively intimidated.
Well, anyway, a friend of mine kinda just called me out and asked me to shoot her portfolio. Of sorts. Her name is Rafia Essuman. She is delving into modelling and is a stunner, to say the least. I did her make up, basic styling, direction and photography. I named this particular collection of ten shots, "Thought".
These are the kind of shots I saw myself taking when I first dabbled into photography, intimate portraiture that brings out that inner vixen (or fox) in a person.
She's gorgeous, right?
Oh, and a quick mention about my new blog banner. Figured a change was due so whipped it up real quick today.
