This was a very fun shoot thought up by my wife (and model) Marina. She had this cosmetic mask that cracked when it dried, and thought it would look cool to photograph. I knew I wanted the photo to have a National Geographic feel to it, so I hung a black backdrop and used a gridded beauty dish at very low power.
