Experimenting with a Neon Light for a Studio Portrait

In this post, I’ll share the story and results of a recent experiment I did with lighting a model with a neon light. I was hanging out with a friend in a local coffee shop when he showed me an awesome album artwork he saw online.

It was for the album A Moment Apart by the Seattle-based electronic music duo ODESZA:

My friend asked me how was it done and if its possible to do it in real life or if it’s just Photoshop. It has this magical vibe with a mysterious orange light shining through a guys head.

I studied the image for a while and my concussion was that is 100% created in post, but at the same time, I took it as a challenge to recreate that setup in real life, just because I am passionate about studio work. And I invited my friend over to try and recreate that picture in my DIY studio.

I must say at that point in time I was totally obsessed by Feel It Still by Portugal. The Man, a track that I would suggest you listen to, on repeat, while you read the rest of my post since this is the music that inspired the look I went after while creating the photo.
