Pushing my creativity with Alvina in Edmonton, AB.
As a photographer, I always try to push myself and to push my creativity and this is what I did with Alvina, at the end of last year in Edmonton. We did that portrait shoot in my apartment in Edmonton and it was great to create for me.
Alvina is a make-up artist, a student, a model. She is a creative herself, so it was great to collaborate with her on that session. I never saw someone posing so easily and being so intense while also being so natural and peaceful.
As usual, I kept my posing pretty simple and minimalist. The only things I wanted to use for this session were this black stool and the white curtains. They are both from IKEA and they are super cheap! Hahaha! I also shot a little bit under-exposed, so my images have lots of grain. It was starting to be very dark in the end, but I actually like the results.
I edited these images with the Wolf Pack presets by Tribe Archipelago. Those are my all-time favourite presets.
She is seriously gorgeous!
Change of outfit and time to play with those cheap white curtains from IKEA! Best investment ever!
Dear Alvina, thank you for this session which allowed me to push my creativity. I am glad I met you in Edmonton and was able to do this photo session with you. Let’s do it again!
