Last week I was testing some new lighting setups at home with my part-time assistant, part-time model and full-time girlfriend. Not long into it, I started to like what I was seeing, both from the light and the model (she knows how to work it pretty well), so we continued to shoot a few different things. While I was happy with the straight-up images I ended up with, for some reason, I just felt the could use a little more something. I opened one in photoshop, clicked a few idea buttons, and also really started to like what I was getting. I tried it with another one, and a few more, and was really digging it. Letting the results wash around in my head for a few days, I decided to call it Đẹp Elemental. Đẹp means beautiful in Vietnamese, which when combined with some other various elements gave me what you see here. I hope you enjoy as much as I did creating these…
