Advanced Techniques & Process 2B – Outcome 2
PDP – Outcome 2
I was asked to come photograph for a make-up artist i am collaborating with, The aim was to capture portraits of her creative mermaid creature. I wanted to capture the detail and texture within the make-up and also the contexts behind the shoot itself – a mermaid been turned to the dark side – it’s taking over her.
I met my aims. I managed to capture close up shots which show the detail within the make-up and also portraits which explore the character being portrayed.
I managed to capture these images on a small piece of white wall using my flash gun and balance card. I am happy with the affect however i would like to try more creative shoots within studio conditions with different light sources to catch further detail.
I have arranged further shoots with the make-up artist and model.
How is this opportunity related to my photography career?
– further experience with creative portraiture shoots
– working in small, limited locations – thinking on the spot and making the best of a bad situation
– confidence with using my flash has improved – i now know what i need to do and how to use it correctly
– collaborating with models and make-up artists – building up client basis and realtionships
