This is an individual portrait of an actress taken in my studio using natural light conditions and a custom turquoise background that I created. As a Los Angeles portrait photographer, I'm always trying to create images that are exceptional and striking. For this image, I considered the subjects turquoise dress and deep blue eyes when I was selecting the background. Although it might seem counterintuitive to create a matching background, when I create a portrait that uses a background that has complementary colors to the subjects apparel eyes, or hair, it makes for a more striking image. In this case, this portrait was to be used as a headshot for this actress and for many years appeared as her homepage image on her highly trafficked website.
Location: Los Angeles, California.
