Photographer: Xavier Guillaume – Duality

Hey everyone!! It’s time for another Photographer of the Day! As you may know by now, I am the retoucher behind Shark Pixel as well as a headshot photographer in DC. I love browsing through the PhotoFocus group for a little inspiration! This week’s choice is Xavier Guillaume.

I love his creative portrait of this beautiful young girl. Her reflection in the window adds a very artistic element to the shot that takes it to another level, but it is soft enough to not take focus away from the actual girl. Well done, Xavier! This image really tells a story.

Xavier shot this with a Nikon D7000 using an 18-105 mm lens. His aperture was set to f 5.0 with a shutter speed of 1/125. He used a flash for this image, and I love the soft and very natural quality of light he was able to create!
