Shoot: Graduate Photography with Nisha Clutton

24 Apr

Today I shot with Photographer Nisha Clutton and Model Zoe Harlotti.

The shoot was organised by Nisha, who was looking to build her fashion photography portfolio for university. She found myself and Zoe using the website Purple Port. A website on which artistic professionals and enthusiasts are able to search for others when wanting to offer paid work or work on collaborations.

In the shoot I was asked to do one makeup look, with a slicked back hairstyle. The makeup was to be based on a brief sent by Nisha; which consisted of using dark smokey eyes and metallics. It gave me the opportunity to experiment with eye makeup, something I am less confident with and I was pleased with the results.

I have to say, initially the makeup I did I was great – though once done, I tried to add vaseline for a wet look; it didn’t really work. The makeup blending I had spent so much time on became blurred and wiping the vaseline cause strong lines. I need to look into more methods of creating wet look effects.

Despite this, the final images looked wonderful. Thanks girls!

SHOOT: Pretty Grunge; with Scott Salt & Lunar Rising

22 Nov

Today I decided to do a quick practice fashion shoot, with my favourite model and photographer – Abi Wright and Scott Salt!

Initially the shoot was meant to be a boho experimentation, linking to my  Task 2 work so I could practice my make-up. However, having just received many new beautiful items in the post, I decided instead to style based on my new pretty pieces.

I still used the main principles of my Task 2, keeping to an English Rose style of makeup, though darkening it for the black outfits. I also managed to still involve curled volume (after using hot sticks) and plaits in the hair, keeping the style simple and elegant.

Overall I’m really happy with the shoot, I need to develop my fashion portfolio and I am quickly gaining confidence now in this style of makeup after recently having the realisation I can literally draw, paint and create whatever I want. Seems a simple revelation but it’s taken a while to come to terms with it!
