Úna Fionnuala O’Riordan

Úna and I went to university together many many moons ago and is currently a cellist with the Detroit Symphony Orchestra. So when she stopped by Vienna on one of her many European sojourns, in addition to a nice stroll around the town, there was no way this lady was leaving without stepping into the studio for a minute or two.

While we produced a number of fun looks this day, towards the end, I started rummaging through the lighting modifiers and spotted the ring flash. Not an everyday use type of tool, I wondered what we could do with it.

Flash here, flash there, I wasn’t getting anything particularly amazing, and thought; Meh…I think we’ve got enough good stuff. Until ….

Hmmm. I wonder what the macro lens and the ring flash would look like. Going back and reviewing what we’d already shot, there was one feature that stood out to me. Her eyes. An enchanting blue/green. And that was that.

A few shots later, we produced this look together. In addition to beautifully coloured eyes, Ms. O’Riordan also knows what she’s doing with a makeup brush. 🙂 Impressive.

Enjoy, and if you’d like to work with me, get in touch!
