I really love Cannes vibes, it’s always a good opportunity to meet new people especially the people who made Cannes.
As a huge fan of Kat Irlin (@kat_in_nyc) I saw just couple days before the festival some photos of Mohammed.
You probably don’t Mohammed, but he is a producer well know in Cannes. I try to contact him and he responded to me really kindly and schedule a shoot in Cannes.
When I arrived to the Martinez at the door room, he opened me and there were Michelle Rodriguez (Actress) and Blame Jordan (Model).
I wasn’t expecting to shoot them at the first place, but Mohammed asked me to do it.
Big challenge for me, it was at a balcony, so the light in the room is dark and the background is very bright. So I have to shoot backlight.
I have 2 choice, natural light, shoot under exposed or shoot with a flash. If read me before, you should know that I m not an expert with the flash, I start shooting with a flash once during the New York Fashion Week F/W 19 with Sarah Ellen.
So every time when I am shooting with my flash, I let my flash doing everything, I am not controlling at all. My raws photos were not so good at all, but I think my skills editing is good, the final result is ok, but clearly the color on some photos are weird, so when I don’t like the colors there is a simple solution, convert the photos in black and white.
