Halloween is coming! Had an on-location Sugar Skull Makeup photography session last Sunday with the talented model Clarissa as a belly dancer! Clarissa is a young lady who is striving to achieve her dream as a make up artist / hair stylist and gaining experience modelling on the side. I don’t usually work with models so when we were acquainted, I presented her with an idea of my own and a location for the shoot like I do with everyone else. Clarissa not only had her own ideas but had amazing ideas that built on top of what I had!!
Despite the sudden drop in temperature that Sunday, she stuck to it and also came to great lengths in order to come to this shoot. This shot has some pretty tricky things we have to hurdle, and so I needed yet another assistant for lights and thank goodness Clarissa had a companion with her because she also helped out with the shoot. It was a cold, but very fun day and I’m quite happy with the results.
This shoot relied heavily on flash gels to pump the color, and I’m beginning to get more familiar with color grading on photoshop so this shoot definitely benefited from it. Included are some of the original shots at the bottom. For those wondering how it was taken I have included some unedited photos! Enjoy!
So anyway, Happy Halloween! Stay safe. =)
