Amari is the lovely lady featured in a new series of photos I shot last week, of which the above photo is a part. She teaches classes at the yoga studio I frequent here in Vancouver. We began the session shooting portraits and various yoga poses, but due to limitations with the shooting space I wasn’t happy with how things were going. I decided to suggest an idea I’ve had on my mind for ages – placing the model behind a backlit piece of fabric – and off we went in a better direction with the shoot. I’m very happy with the results and have a few other ideas I’d like to try in a similar way.
