Projects
  • NEON SHOOT
    NEON SHOOTEach term, members would pitch theme ideas for each edition for HARD magazine and then the committee would vote. The theme for this edition was ‘Neon’ and so I worked closely with one of the editors to brainstorm ideas for a shoot. We used neon paint and a UV torch so that the colour would stand out. The idea was to emphasise facial features with minimalistic but effective designs to mimic the way light can reflect the face. These are the designs I created and painted on the models.
