Active Girls


As a personal project, COOPH master Leo Rosas recently shot a series of portraits entitled ‘Active Girls’. His intended message was to represent the feminine side of active and sporty lifestyles, juxtaposed against colored rectangles to symbolize a square-minded portion of society who believe that such lifestyles are only for men.

Influenced by sport and fashion illustrations, Leo focused on strong visuals with a commercial aesthetic. He achieved this using a contrasted light setup and a high-end postproduction workflow to enhance the model’s features for a crisp and attractive look. 

To see the process behind the shoot, check out his behind-the-scenes video on his Youtube channel. For more of Leo’s work, head over to his website, Instagram, Behance and Twitter.
