Dami, A portrait

A couple of days ago I did another portrait shoot at the Life House in Victoria Island, Lagos, Nigeria. My very good friend Dami was the sitter and she was awesome. This was the first time she had every done anything like this so it was all a new experience for her. She did her own styling and I had Temitope, a Make Up Artist from BM-Pro do the make up. Special thanks to them both.


Ayodele (Wife) helped me sort things out too in this shoot by holding the light, organising and tying up loose ends. I couldn't have done anything without her help.


THe lighting setup for this shot was just a simple speedlite with a yellow gel in a Lastolite Ezybox.
