Studio shoots are pretty much all i can do just now in this terrible weather and last week saw a lovely young girl in my studio for some shots. Jodie Milne is a local hair and make up artist who i contacted through facebook.
Jodie was great, she was emailing me days before the shoot with all sorts of different ideas. She showed up to the studio with bags filled with different clothes, accessories, hair and make up. This is always a good sign that the shoot is going to go well.
We sat down and had a look through a few images we both liked and wanted to maybe try and re create. Jodie got to work on her hair and make up whilst i set up the lighting and backgrounds. The first couple of shots were taken using the beauty dish and on a black background. The 3rd image saw a wardrobe, hair and make up change and also a different background and light set up. The last image was taken on the black background again with a large octobox is my personal favourite from the day as i just love the eye contact from Jodie. She may look as if she is giving an evil stare but that is just her strong look (she told me it has got her into trouble a few times)
A few hours later and different hair and make up changes and we were both happy with the results we got. Jodie has agreed to work along side me in the future as my hair and make up artist, i’m really excited about this as she is just as passionate as i am about getting great looking images.
