Tell us about the process of creating an art piece and which gear do you use?
The process consists of me creating a look and feel board. Every detail such as location, wardrobe, colour, lighting, mood, props and make-up needs to flow and compliment my imaginary vision.
I use Godox Lighting and Light Modifiers and I also own two Fujifilm Camera Bodies a Fujifilm XT-20 and my favourite camera off course is my Fujifilm XH-1.
Where do you get your inspiration from?
I find inspiration in everyday things such as fashion, make-up looks, series, fine art, music, light and most importantly the beauty of nature. I constantly find myself daydreaming, thoughts and ideas flowing with a desire to create something fresh and new.
During lock-down I participated in the ISO Challenge which kept me inspired. A keyword consisting of three letters was shared and you needed to create a new word and use this as your subject. One of the words was “dis” and Disorientated stood out. I had so many ideas on how I wanted to make the most effective and creative portrait possible. I owned only two flashlights. I had no fancy backdrop and wanted a dark background. I used our Jacuzzi cover as a backdrop and one light setup using my Godox AD200. This image was all shot in-camera, my excitement when I managed to pull off two faces in one image was UNREAL! Ever since the Iso Challenge I learned and realized that experimenting is key and creativity has no limit.
