This shoot was a collaboration between the MUA, Model and I, purely for fun to get these kinds of shots in our portfolios. We all had such a blast and did a couple different looks.
The model did an amazing job, nailing basically every frame giving me a hard time to choose which ones to edit. =)
It was also my first time working with Maria as a makeup artist, and she is a professional with crazy talent!
For me it's really important to do these kinds of shoots every once in a while to just play around and experiment. Having fun without the pressure you feel sometimes when shooting for a client is really giving you the freedom to try new things and be creative.
I guess what I'm trying to say is have fun!!
Fool around, try stuff, if it works, BAM!! If it doesn't, no biggie, just try something else.
Mola Setti white with both PAD and OPAL installed on an Elinchrom style 600rx head slightly camera left.
Two small Elinchrom D-Lite 2 on each side of the model with gridded standard reflectors and two different gels.
