Over the past year I have had the opportunity to become acquainted with a beautiful and talented young lady. I met her shortly after her arrival from London through a friend. At that time she was seeking some headshots to apply to a school of dance in New York. We instantly hit it off and became friends.
Possessing a rich cultural heritage, (Ethiopian mother and German father) one of her goals in life is to return to Ethiopia to teach dance to children. We had drinks, dinners and shared stories about London and its people, my time living in Germany and our love of music. Two photo shoots and one year later she must now return to London.
At our last dinner together we left everyone at the table and ran outside Madiba Restaurant in Fort Green, Brooklyn(I LOVE THIS PLACE!!) http://www.madibarestaurant.com/ and snapped a couple of quick shots.
These shots were taken at dusk a couple of doors down from the restaurant in 3 different locations at F1.4 , 85mm, without flash. Some retouching in LR. No retouching in photoshop.
I will miss her greatly! Auf Wiedersehen my friend until we meet again.
