Leia – 80’s Cover Girl

A final image from the studio session for Leia Heider’s portfolio. I wanted a completely different look, but didn’t have time to change the makeup or hair after the Princess Leia shot. Instead we removed the flowers from the hair, she put on a sweater, and I shot the image back in the studio. I toned the images slightly differently in Lightroom and Photoshop, so hopefully people will be impressed by the shot, rather than realize it was taken during the same session.
