Story

We kicked this shoot off in the desert of Tenerife (Canary Islands) around when the golden sunset hour transitioned over to the blue hour and went directly into the twilight. I normally like to integrate new elements in every shoot (where possible), elements that I am not entirely comfortable about and that would add a different feel and diversity to my work.

For this shoot, I decided to experiment with artificial light, which, in this case, was nothing more than the car headlamps. I’ve seen photographers playing with it before but I was curious what I could make out of that. The strong backlight highlighting the profiles of the couple was so magical, especially that it was complete darkness by that time, so the contrast was very vivid and gave pictures volume, as I was hoping it would.
