Toronto - compared to other huge metropoles - is definitely a cool city and I enjoy every time when I get to visit. My last trip united me with Eric who is a graphic design student. He reached out via Instagram and we decided to shoot at his downtown apartment that looked promising from the pictures he sent me before the shoot. It's a beautiful and charming little flat with hardwood floors, loads of natural light and cool details and corners that work perfectly for a shoot.
Eric's style and sense for interior design made for a wonderful combination. I wanted to capture some melancholic - maybe a little quirky and sensual images with a certain vintage feel to them...which turned out really great.
Eric has shot with other photographers before - so getting great images was pretty chilled and effortless. Combined with his handsome looks and his fun way, it was a wonderful session and I'd like to present some shots of it here.
As usual - a lot of the editing and grading happened in Photoshop. But this time I gave the images already a certain degree of toning in Lightroom before heading over to Photoshop for the retouching. I was surprised how well this worked and if you are a Lightroom user, you might have seen the recent changes about profiles that have been implemented. I think this way of editing, speeds up the process significantly and makes for some pretty amazing results.
