Yesterday I was working with Makeup artist Rachael (Rouge Makeup) and model Taz Keens. I have recently bought a new bit of lighting kit and had been looking for an excuse to try it out. This was the perfect opportunity! Rachael was tight for time yesterday so we decided to shoot in portable studio at her house in Portsmouth.
Rachael had some ideas using some flowers and bright makeup, so I arrived flowers in hand to find Taz already in the chair having her makeup done. This was ideal for me as I always end up sitting around watching whilst this is being done. I was able to get straight on and set the studio up, a very simple setup with a black background and a single light. I was ready to shoot in no time at all.
This was the first time Taz and I had worked together so we started with a shots where I offered no direction, it quickly became apparent that Taz was a very natural model and needed very little in the way of guidance.
Rachael changed the makeup slightly to give it more pop and this was how it came out.
I really wanted to do something different from the previous look and I came across an image on Rachaels Laptop with really high impact makeup, I showed her and she set to creating something that had the same impact. This is by far my favourite image from the shoot and one that I am rather proud of.
Thank you to both Rachael and Taz for a stunning shoot, the images came out great and I have no doubt they are both pleased with them. If you would like to book a shoot with Hampshire Beauty Photographer, David Greensmith, contact us now on 07590 901488 or email [email protected]
