I had been thinking of shooting a series of portraits for a long time when my lovely friend Sabrina accepted to model for me. We did this photo shoot last month in her Parisian apartment – which we completely turned upside down for most of the day – and had a real blast. Choosing the outfits, matching them with jewellery and playing with her hair and make-up was really fun. I must say that I was quite impressed by her confidence and “professionalism” – especially for someone who had never modelled before. Adjusting the lights and getting it all to work together was another challenge and sometimes quite tricky, especially when both studio and natural lights were involved. Did I mention that this was a very sunny day with thick patches of clouds passing by every now and then? But this was definitely a wonderful learning experience – and a really fun one too. I am really looking forward to my next photo shoot!
