Feature Of The Month
This month’s feature is influencer/model/actress Arthi Venkatesh of Chennai, India. Arthi was one of the first people I ever took photos of when I was first starting photography. At the time, Arthi was living in NYC as a model. Since then, she’s gone back to India where she has grown her influencer status exponentially and has expanded into acting. I was able to reunite with Arthi on her most recent visit back to New York City and was able to get a session in with her.
These photos were taken in Soho, NYC during the mid-late afternoon. New York City can be a tricky place to shoot because the tall buildings create dark shade while other areas are extremely bright in raw sunlight. We were able to find shaded areas with the late-afternoon golden light that made her skin glow nicely. It’s always a pleasure shooting with Arthi.
