Safia Oakley-Green is 15 years old here. I arranged to meet her with her mother and spent around 30mins taking her portrait in the street at The Strand Arcade, Sadler Gate, Derby. The lighting wasn’t the best during the first part of the shoot, but I directed Safia to go into some shaded area and then it produced some beautiful soft light on her face, as seen in the images below. She has such great hair and really photogenic in front of the camera. There will be more coming from Safia later this year.
