Black and white glamour photo

Black and white headshot

Black and white headshot portrait.  Taken for Cynthia, a model from Chicago, now living in  Denver.  Cynthia needed a new headshot for her modeling agency, as well as social media like Facebook and Instagram.

We decided to go with a white dramatic top, a light gray background and soft lighting to bring out her great features, as well as minimize any flaws. Shot with a digital camera and some minor retouching and adjustments for effect.

I prefer the black and white version, although the original was in color. Simple, classical and yet dramatic. We were very pleased with the result.
