KINGSLEY & AYCEE

Kingsley moved to Moscow from Ghana in 1984, and has since been assaulted, robbed at least fifteen times and kidnapped twice. Luckily, Moscow is much safer these days, and he's glad he stuck around to talk and laugh about all the stuff he's had to put up with. This is his lovely daughter.

Lighting info: Two monoblocs in softboxes vertical aligned camera left, one monobloc with a gridspot directly behind them aiming back up to give a rim highlight and some background separation, and one snooted speedlight off-axis camera right aimed at her face for fill. They moved out of their original positions so I got some flare from the backlight (which was supposed to be hidden by their bodies), which meant I had to crop the shot a bit and tone down the flare, but it was definitely worth it, as I love this moment. Thanks to Richard for making them laugh.
