Of course, it’s no coincidence that I was talking in the previews article about studio sessions. This is the best example of another studio shooting I made with Pop Academy for a competition entry for Wella. Not only did Cosmin Bentan made this incredible hairstyle but he also made that gradient of color that made me pay much more attention to the lighting of the set.
It was such an amazing experience because although I knew from my readings about beauty poses, with the help of Adrian Pop I understood the importance of those millimetric moves that can change an entire look and face expression.
While he was focusing on explaining to me the perfect geometry of the hairstyle, I watched how my model’s face was changing drastically with every subtle move.
It clearly made a huge difference in my beauty portraits afterward and I’m really thankful for this experience.
