On the same topic of some of my previous shoots (athlete’s portraits), it was Carolina’s turn to show me an intimidating side of herself… could almost see her in Assassin's Creed, right?
For one of the most recent sessions of my ongoing project of athlete’s portraits, I invited Sofia who, among many other things, is a fanatical kitesurfer.
We were still warming up, you know: “so this is what were going to do today”, when she pulls off this twist that turns her poncho into a big black disk! A few takes later, to adjust leg position, facial expression and the shape of the disk and we had what ended up being my favorite shot of the whole session!
Sure, it has nothing to do with kitesurf, but it has everything to do with Sofia...
In some cases, personality just doesn’t fit into one single image…!
