Shooting these type of photos is all about “seeing” the hair on set while shooting and getting the hairdresser to fix as you see the problem areas. What the camera sees is what the audience sees. Photo/ concept /retouching BABAK

An Outtake from a 2010 Naha Awards collection. This collection is still one of my favorites as it mixes fashion with avant-garde hair. The lighting budget was very tight on this shoot. This was shot after the shoot using a 60w house hold bulb –   Hand held 35 mm glass at a safe  f2.5 . I did a few portraits in that location afterwards.  A babak Photo  & Charlie Price Hair.
