I love shooting portraits. It’s always a challenge to photograph a stranger and make that person look natural, relaxed, in the moment… and at the same time account for good light, apt background, and a conducive atmosphere.

We shot across 2 days in different locations as well. In the end, it was quite a surreal experience.
