Malaika, A portrait

Okay this is not exactly the shot from that I promised that I'd put up from the Duck Race. Unfortunately I didn't get the chance today to process the final shot. Instead I got carried away with a photo session with my intern and my mate, Tunde. Together we created a few images to complete the concept we started working using Bumi if you remember.

What do you think?

For those of you wondering, I used a flash this time.

Okay back to the ducks tomorrow.

I really like the use of light here. It is elegant and dramatic.
