Lily Lightbourn Natural Hair Portrait Glenford Nunez

Lily was one of the first models that I photographed for the The Coiffure Project. Lily is a great model and she moves very well in front of the camera. Lily’s eyes stood out to me when I was searching through the comp cards that her agency sent. Since this image I have worked with Lily on many different occasions.

This was a simple shoot with a simple lighting setup. I used a beauty dish and a reflector. This shoot (like most test shoots) was experimental. At the time, I was obsessed with the work of Terry Richardson and I was trying to imitate his look. I know that you can never successfully copy someone else’s work but you can make a lot of great discoveries in the process. All of the great artists started by trying to copy the masters before until they developed their own voice.

One trick I learned is to pop the lenses out of glasses when photographing them because the glass always has a reflection. Sometimes the refection can be distracting to the overall photo.
