It was a fairly quick shoot to do, as there was just the one look. With beauty head shots, there really isn't that much variety you can do in terms of different poses.
We did the shoot at whitespace* studios and I chose to use a coloured backdrop. I picked Olive green which seemed to work best with the golds and purples of the head piece.
