Well I am back again with another test shot segment. This time I had the pleasure of getting to photograph a young model by the name of Ashley Chung. We had our initial interaction like most things these days via the internet. I had received a e-mail a few weeks ago from her regarding a interest in working with me on some photos. She was kind enough to attach a few shots of herself for reference and after taking a look I was writing her back to let her know we should make this happen. We locked in a date and before you knew it we were shooting at a hollywood apartment to serve as our backdrop. After wrapping up the day with a few sets I knew this one we shot in the bedroom was going to be the one used for this piece. The wardrobe,the lighting it all just fell into place for this set and Ashley having the look she does wasn’t bad either. I felt she had a pretty exotic look that made it hard to only pic a handful of shots but I think I did ok. Take a look below to see for yourself!
