Mr. Black

The idea was to make portrait that is almost black so the white pocket square just pops out. JP was once again helping me and worked also as a model. We didn’t have proper handkerchief so we ended up making it from paper. Black mask is a helmet hood backwards and it worked well. Lighting setup was new to me and we were looking for a really subtle light. I was surprised how small light movements were. Turning light just 15 degrees and it didn’t work at all anymore.

Post processing was pretty simple. I added a bit of texture and vignette to the background and removed all the dust spots. Pocket square was a bit too papery so I removed some wrinkles and added linen texture to it. Last I added color toning using color balance.
