While I was with Matt in Croydon’s Memory Box, I tried my hand again at doing low light photography and used Apple’s Portrait Mode Stage Light feature to produce this photo.
I’m genuinely surprised at how well this photo turned out overall as I brought the highlights and shadows down a little with a hint of vignette through Instagram’s editing tools and turned up the Lux to bring the colour hues from the neon lights up a notch and I’m so pleased with the overall result!
The neon lights that beamed onto Matt created this visually surreal lighting effect that I’ve seen in some adverts and music videos and even on art pieces online, and to capture this shot of Matt beneath the neon lights in Memory Box and seeing how well it turned out genuinely surprised me.
