Queen Utica

September 28, 2019

Queen Utica is an extremely talented local drag queen. She created the hat prop as well as the accessories, and did her own makeup.

The portrait uses natural light and was taken just before sunset in an open but shaded area, and using a silver reflector underneath for a bit of subtle fill.

I then processed the photo in Photoshop to accentuate her features and perfect the tones and exposure.
