Portrait of Kseniia Komar
This is now turning into a bit of a pokemon game where I am slowly collecting images of all of my friends and those who have had an impact on my life. Before taking Kseniia’s portrait, I found some beautiful images by photographer Emily Soto who I follow. Emily was using such amazingly soft light that the skin tones were perfect. As soon as I saw her portraits I knew that this was the way I needed to do my portrait of Kseniia.
I met Kseniia about two years ago when I was travelling back from London to Leicester after photographing a Rudimental rehearsal in some random industrial estate. At the time I was sat with my headphones in doing my usual train ride home check of images. At some point out of the corner of my eye I noticed a rather pretty lady had sat down next to me. I have always been a fan of making train friends. We got chatting and ended up going for a drink that evening. We have stayed in touch since and meet up from time to time. Kseniia is a lovely person and very creative, I’ve always enjoy our conversation.
