A recent image shot by @OfficialPhotosByLouis is went viral last week. The image depicts a very beautiful dark skinned girl/model @Princess.Amii painted with yellow strides and a fabulous sunflower in her hair. There is by far no doubt the image is beyond stunning and has gone viral all over the world, at least of black models. The image is as below.
However, the image shot by Atlanta (USA) based photographer @OfficialPhotosByLouis is not a new concept. It is one derrived off the make up work of popular make up artist @Moshoodat as known in instagram, of which Louis made it clear it was inspired by her.
The original shots of her concept was first done by social media photography star, IslandBoi of which has been posted below.
Another edit of Louis images.
So the question is who shot it best? In our opinion, there is something a tad bit more fabulous about Louis’s image. Maybe it could be the natural light, the natural flower and the limited amount of retouching applied. Especially in areas where the yellow streaks were placed.
But whichever way, the power in creativity is the originality of where the first set of images will always stand! Share your thoughts on our facebook page.
