Behind the scenes of a video shoot
Yesterday I trotted off to Chris Giles Photography Studio with my Model, Dora Giani to make some mini video's to demonstrate to the general public how to create make up looks.
Here are a few 'behind the scenes' pictures I took whilst there;
Chris making sure that he has put the memory card into the camera ! ( these things must be double checked)
Make up laid out ready to start, with those all important cups of tea.
Checking the Lighting in the studio - Dora amused by all the fuss!
Keeping Warm between takes.
Just a few of the make up looks I have created a make up demo for you to recreate.
AND ........................ NOW FOR A SNEAKY PEAK of smoky eyes look - video tuition to follow....
We had a great day making these videos for the general public to view and recreate the looks themselves - I will be releasing the videos throughout 2012 (hopefully one between now and New Year) - All on my youtube channel - makeupbyAmyP
PLEASE NOTE - THIS POST CONTAINS NUDITY
Leading on from the art nude photo shoot with Photographer Richard Maxim, one of the required looks was based on an Egyptian theme.
Richard asked if we could aim towards a traditional Egyptian look, based on stonework;
I love the finished photos :-)
What ever your opinion is on art nude photography, I believe that if it is done correctly, the result should be a beautiful artistic photograph celebrating the human form.
I was employed by photographer Richard Maxim for a shoot with the gorgeous Faith Obae model where we was joined by Claudia of Falcieri designs.
It was a full on day and we decided to finish off the shoot with these art nude looks;
Claudia suggested that we use the floor of the studio to create these looks, her reasoning behind it being that Faith would not be limited to the positions that she could create and hold. Seeing as she was free to move I really feel that this was so beneficial to how the finished looks ended up.
I made the last minute decision to paint half of Faith's body using a purple aqua colour body paint by Kryolan and I am so glad that I did as I feel it really adds an extra dimension to the photos.
The photo above is my favourite from the selectio…
I picked up the telephone one day only to have an overexcited photographer scream at me.... 'Pack your bags, we're going to the Maldives'
So I did what she said!
The team was an all female team - photographer, model and me (make up artist, hair stylist and stylist) - plus the photographer's mum (she came along for the ride! - Hazard 1!)
Hazard 2 was when it came to packing - apparently I had no space in my suitcase to pack clothes for me as it would be full of clothes for the shoot we were doing! still, we packed suitcases full of fashion clothes loaned to us by various fashion houses, fashion students etc and wore all of our own clothes on the plane - A bonus is that you loose around 2 stone once you have taken all your clothes off once you have arrived!
We landed in Male, caught a speed boat (at this point we didn't even know which island we was going to) and got off at a very small idyllic Island in the Maldives baby!
