This is actually a test shot, taken whilst setting up lights on a shoot with Estrany for my Soho Noir series.
Whilst incomplete, the lighting is way bolder than I'd usually shoot - and I really like how the edgy light combines with Estrany's hard, almost murderous stare.
The processing is incomplete too - the full process, taking out her mole, etc. was just too porcelain to keep the edge. This version feels right to me, with the human imperfections retained, but so penetrating a stare and so intimate a frame it is amplified.
Estrany is great; she's on Purpleport, superb to work with and if you're in London you should give her a shout!
Hope everyone is having an incredible week!
