So, Laude Magazine’s first issue is finally out; ad with it, the editorial I created in collaboration with them.
I’m pretty excited about this because it’s a testament to the power of collaborating to create and how powerful people working together can be. And the honor that this made it to the first issue of a publication, for me, it’s a blessing.
For the enchanted shoot, I tried to explore multiple eras and styles making them modern and more progressive. Uduak, the stylist did a fantastic job pulling together all the pieces. I’m so grateful for the turnout.
I used various lighting techniques, mostly two light setups as you will see in the Behind The Scenes.
