BLUE by Kristian Björkqvist

This image came to life after I had a vision of using reflections in a portrait - more specifically mirrors.

I wanted the image to be as simple as possible and containing only 1 color besides black & white tones.
So, after modeling the pieces of the image a while in my mind, I decided to build a box of mirrors to execute my plan. I ended up using 4 pieces of 30x30cm square shaped mirrors and gluing them together with some angle irons and duct tape.

The shoot was pretty simple - just a black background and 1 light in a 120cm octabox camera right (gelled blue), close to the model. Shot with a 50mm lens.
