This project “Future Girl” was devised because I wanted to show something futuristic, without losing the style of my photographs, and try to create something in study rather than the typical photograph with a colour background. I wanted to put together in a studio, a place that existed only in my head, and it was time to make it “real”.
Photography and Retouching: Nicolas Bascal
Model: Caro Valiente
Make up: Gisela Guerrero.
The idea came to me one day I was watching some photos from other artists trying to portray women in different times from today. Then I thought, how will women feel in the future? Will they continue dealing with the same problems? I don’t know. But it’s not going to be a weak woman, despite having to keep fighting. The colors that conveyed me more idea of the future were blue, silver and magenta. So I started looking for achieve those colors from studio flashes that I built in my own home. One of the highlights was the selection of the model and especially the make up artist that made a work of art on the skin.
I made the colors from the lights, using color filters in front of the flashes. Then in post production, I used Adobe ligthroom to correct some nuances, and to highlight the colors of the filters. In the end, I used Adobe Photoshop to make the skin look a little smoother, add textures and better lighting.
People responded well to the project, they asked me where did I take the pictures, how did I do the effects, and where the idea came from.
All my friends contacted me to congratulate me for work and post production that had the series of photographs of future girl.
