Viki: Sunset Street Style in Wicker Park

Viki Close-Up

When I saw Viki chatting with her friend Mary outside of Eskell on Milwaukee Ave, I couldn’t resist another go at playing with solar flare. Her striking features were highlighted by the beige slouchy sweater, which allows the focus to remain on her ring-encrusted hands and gorgeous figure. What I love most about this picture is how the fuzzy open knit weave of her top allows the sunlight to slice the most perfect outline around her body. As my photography skills evolve I’m becoming more obsessed with using light in prominent ways throughout my images, from rim lighting to solar flare.

*Thanks to my eagle-eyed friend, MidweStyle blogger Jeff Kieslich, Viki’s sweater has been identified as the Helmut Lang Scoop Neck Sweater.
