Deji, A portrait

Some of you may know this energetic character from a gospel pop group known as Four Kornerz. If you haven't I strongly suggest you check them out on their website.

This shot was a commission for a magazine spread. Doing this shot was relatively exciting as Deji is quite a bit of a poser.

Finally! This is more like it. Very effective lighting and processing but the pose isn't saying anything to me and I challenge others to come up with something that makes sense! :p
... an extrovert with extrovert tendancies.
