The Blue Topaz String Trio, A portrait

I forgot to queue this shot for yesterday as I've not found it easy finding an internet connection in Lagos, Nigeria which is were I am at the moment. I am not posting anymore till I get back which will be on Friday.

This is another advertorial portrait commission I was given earlier this year. Possibly one of the hardest to execute given the constraints and budget but no doubt one I am absolutely proud of.

Special thanks to the girls for their help in pulling this off.

Oh and I have to say, check out their music on their website.

a very nice shot--has a modern, edgy twist.

Imagine what jumped out at me when I opened your site, the girls picture just leaped out.. very well done. Nice.
ah...why the ShMood smile lovely shot.
Fantastic result. Except for a a bit too strong highlight below the shoulder of the second girl, it looks perfect to me.
