Photo Highlight: Mesam on Black

I have updated my portraits collection with a few new images apart from this one. Click on the image to see the rest.

The caption reads:

On a photoshoot I took this picture of Mesam. He is of Pakistani descent and his dark complexion and hair looks good on this dark background. I used a color profile equivalent to Kodak Portra 160 to get lovely skin tones and off camera lighting to avoid red eyes and get a more three-dimensional look. I put my external flash on a stand to have my hands free to use the camera and after a few attempts I asked Mesam to look at his parents next to me, so he would look away from the lens. It would also have been good if he look directly at the lens – it would just have been different
