FStoppers POTD - RelzLife

Color of my Soul

“I wanted to go for a clean beauty look. The type you’d see in cosmetic or perfume ads. I kept the lighting simple to one light and some reflectors. To get the model in the mood, I resort to music. I threw on a Pretty Lights playlist off Songza, turned off all the lights except for the strobe modeling lamp. That way the live environment reflects the final image. I wanted the image to reflect peace and relaxation, with a soulful feel, and the blue make up and backdrop helped convey those feelings.”- Relz Life
