Geisha Photo Shoot with Maya Murofushi was taken the same day as Maya and Monica fashion photo shoot. The idea was to make a more editorial photo shoot, transforming the two fantastic model into Geisha and to give them a specific mood.
In the case of Maya, we wanted to give her a kind of “bad” geisha look and attitude and I have to say, she was amazing in front of the camera, look amazing and acted amazing.
The lighting I used for this photo shoot was quite simple, 2 flashes at the front, one as key light and one as fill light, one flash at the back of the model to provide a back light and an other flash for the background. The ratio of these flashes was sometimes changed to give to the image a more dramatic or more natural look.
I would like to thank Mai for the fantastic make-up and hairstyle she did on Maya, she really made this photo-shoot looks the way we wanted.
In the gallery below there are some of the Maya Geisha pictures, Monica pictures will follow soon.
