test with Valentyn

model: Valentyn at Heroin Model Management

photography & retouch: Basia Pawlik

we did a test shot with Valentyn on extremely rainy, dull November day in Warsaw, on location, outside my building. it's really hard to shoot when you don't have any light available, so I supperted myself with a reflector. I love how the neighbourhood worked as the background, especially the blue wall. the mood I wanted to achieve was industrial, but still stylish, with a model in focus.
