“Beauty in Culture” Editorial – China

For the fourth day of shooting, Catherine was a perfect match not only because of her heritage, but because of her title of Miss Asian Las Vegas 2014. Danielle did an incredible job on the makeup, adding some gold to just make things stand out against the white powder.

I loved the fan that Tiffany selected for Catherine’s hair. It worked very well with the shot, especially when I used a yellow gel as a back light. In these couple shots, it looks like she was wearing a yellow fan.

Ultimately, to keep things consistent with the rest of the shots which used a black background, I selected this shot because Catherine looked powerful and regal.

I’ve had an amazing time working with such talented people during all my shoots. I was also relieved to get all the shooting finished before my Rio de Janeiro trip, which left me more time to edit the photos after my trip. Unfortunately, Jute Magazine did not pick up the editorial. If I don’t first succeed, I must try and try again!
