Young Women

These shots were original made for an assignment and intended for commercial use. The client wanted me to shoot these women for an advertisement, specifically a medicine that would fight cancer that affects women.

I found there was something more to these pictures, something morose. I totally reworked the images to come up with a moodier tone. I used a subtle complementary colour shift, making the whites look a little bluish in contrast with the darker parts, which come out a bit more yellowish. These colours, combined with the fine details my camera was able to capture, created a haunting series of images that stick in the mind.
