Basem & Fa | Washington DC Photographers
While we were traveling around Senegal, we met many amazing people who wore boutique clothing that was distinctly unique to their culture. Turns out that the capital of Dakar is full of fashion designers with their showrooms tucked in corners all around the city. Since we packed some studio lighting equipment with us we were ready to jump on an opportunity to set up a genuinely different type of fashion shoot working with a few of the new faces we had met. It had gotten late in the day and we opted for a night time shoot to create a big contrast between the smokey night streetscape in the background against the bright colors and patterns so commonly used in these hand sewn outfits. Head over to our Facebook page to see the full set from the photoshoot.
