I’ve shot Tashia a few times now. This was the first time I shot her when one of my assistants used my studio to shoot a small job and she was the model. I asked if I could do a portrait when they were done. She stayed in the bikini she was in for the job and i just stood her against my black wall and put a hot light on her. It’s very simple, but I kinda like the juxtaposition of beach girl in a bikini on black in stark light. When I asked her not to smile, she said her mom calls this her “duh face.” 🙂
