Last August, I had a great time photographing for my friend Ben at Aveda, you can see the images here. This month I got the opportunity to shoot for him again,
This time he was dying the hair peachy tones with strong cut lines. I suggested a dark forest green for the background to contrast with the peachy tones and I'm glad I did as it worked really well!
I used a soft box high and to directly to the left which lit the hair nicely and also caused those beautiful collarbone shadows! A kick light from the back and to the right gave the highlights to the right of her face and a reflector from below and right to soften any hard shadows caused by the angle of the soft box.
I didn't want to evenly light the hair as there were so many subtle colours and shades to it and I think it's worked out nicely!
Until next time
