How To Shoot And Edit Darker Skin Tones
No, you’re not crazy: photographing darker skin tones, like mine, is harder than photographing lighter ones. Before anyone goes and reports me for reverse racism, which isn’t a thing, lets talk about this in purely technical terms."

Toward the beginning of my Adobe Creative Residency I pitched a piece to Adobe Create about the history of racism and photography with suggestions as to how to shoot and edit darker skin tones. The goal was to increase visibility by giving tangible tips. The article did remarkably well. So I ended up doing a studio shoot with BTS video and photography to explain my points more clearly.

I chose subjects, location, captured, edited and art directed the piece.
