Photographer of the week : Alexandra Sophie

I had the pleasure to discover Sophie’s photo stream thanks to a tip from our previously featured photographer Lara Zankoul
Alexandra’s unique style is focused on backlit and shallow DOF, her portraiture is emotional with very delicate toning. A style of photography you cannot really describe nor grasp until you’ve actually seen. I’ll leave you with 10 of her selected pictures that describe her work best.
You can also check her website and her deviant art gallery for great inspiration
