Beauty Photography Turns Dark with Boscia Black Mask
In this shoot, we embraced a dark, alternative style of beauty. As an NYC beauty photography duo, we are always looking to create fresh imagery that sits outside of the norm. The aim for this shoot was to contrast the hyper colorful, heavily edited, blasted-white beauty style that was popular at the time. As soon as we saw the Boscia Black Mask, we were instantly inspired by its latex-like appearance. So, we developed a beauty concept with a dominatrix twist.
To make it work, we needed the perfect face with a less typical look, prominent features, and the ability to tap into a darker place for the exact vibe we were looking for. Whitney was the woman for this – we knew it the moment that we saw her and she delivered on a level that surpassed even our expectations. Thanks to Whitney, Wilhelmina, Celestine Agency, and Christina for helping us bring our vision to life. We couldn’t be happier with the results.
