"I took this shot on a cold Saturday night, in a Lisbon area of intense nightlife called Cais do Sodré. It was a fashion photoshoot with the young and promising model Filipa Lázaro, and the help of the creative and talented MUA and fashion adviser Zakahia.
The setup is quite simple: just an shoot-through umbrella camera right with the speedlight matching the ambient light and an improvised blue gel, to create some contrast with the background. Had to use a rather slow shutter speed to catch the night atmosphere, as well as cranking up the ISO a little bit up to 1600. Then it was time for some Lightroom and Photoshop magic, to bring out the color tones and add more drama and intensity to the final image." -Nelson Teixeira
