(High)Light: A Photo Series / by Andrea Beça

As a creative, I often get ideas that I just cannot let go of. Sometimes for months, sometimes for years. (For example, I have multiple theatre and film scripts that have been swimming in my head over over a decade - yes, a DECADE.)

As a creative entrepreneur, my ideas often have to wait until I have a chance to carve out time for them. This year, I'm trying to commit a lot more time to my ideas, because I know when I unleash them, I thrive creatively, spiritually, and emotionally.

This shoot was one of those ideas. It's been on my mind for over a year, and I finally had a chance to make it happen with two extremely talented friends - makeup artist Corinne Simpson of VampireNomad Palette and model/actor Rekha Kapadia (whom you may recognize from my short film, nightwalk.)

If you know me, or even if you just follow me on social media, you know I'm obsessed with string lights. I just LOVE them. I love lights and lightbulbs in general, but string lights have a special place in my heart. I thought it would be really fun to play with string lights as the only light source in a shoot, and to play with highlighter to pick up and emphasize that light.

In a nutshell, it was a fantastic shoot, and I had as much fun editing these shots as I did taking them. It's been hard to narrow down the selection! I'm sharing a handful now. Keep an eye on my Instagram and photography portfolio for more in the future.
