Midnight in…..er….a warehouse in Canberra. 

  
Another old shot, as I write this from a doctors waiting room – our youngest is a bit off.

The brief for this hair campaign (for Byron Turnbull) was to make it look like we were on a rooftop in LA or Paris on a warm Summer’s night. …..actually, we were freezing out butts off in a dirty warehouse in Canberra in the middle of winter….(of course)

So how do you create that look? Well, I set up a very layered and rich foreground light for our talent, and in the background built a little structure of party lights. I dropped the background out of focus, and the plan was to replicate them to create the effect of city lights. Which would have been a beautiful look.
Just like in the macaron shot of a few days ago, I worked with retoucher Sam Hawken. She suggested using these background plates instead of my build, which she thought would give us a more romantic look. She was right.
