The Makeover.

The Art of makeup is an amazing thing to me. I work with a makeup Artist her website is pamperedprincesschicago.com I was just watching her do her thing this past week trying to understand the craft of the “beauty makeover” . Somethings aren’t meant for us men and I think makeup is something that goes back to little girls with crayons and barbies…..lol.

What we see and what the camera captures is a night and day type of thing. Ever put on makeup and take a picture and was like…. “what happened to my lipstick or eyeshadow”? Well the the camera is what happened. Professional photography and makeup services gives you insight, recommendations and information that will help you get the desired look that your looking for.

The photo above is a perfect example of professional makeup application and photography combined to create an image designed to display the beauty of the model’s facial features. A different perspective was taken so that the viewers eyes can travel across her face but be drawn in to the eyeshadow.

Just a quick post about Professional services. Remember you get what you pay for and if you want a professional portfolio, at some point your going to have to invest in professional services.

The female form.

What’s up everyone.
Today I have been thinking ALOT about one of the greatest gifts ever giving to man……. THE WOMAN! I have the pleasure of shooting all types of women from short to tall, petite to voluptuous and from all walks of life. Now being a man I would like to think that I know what appeals to the viewers of the women that I photograph, but there are different flavors for everyone.

Shelly (who is our model above) Has a smile to die for and other ASSetts, but as you can see she has a intimate and very sensual side to her as well. The total shoot wasn’t shot as artistic as this because it was more for a starter portfolio, but we did an outside location at a mansion near my home and some indoor backdrop shots as well. I was looking to highlight the form of the breast and contour their shape to draw the viewers attention to the upper body, but seeing that I love the lower body my light fell lower than I wanted and this shot was born.

Its always a pleasure to shoot with someone who is comfortable with the camera and thats pretty good with directions as well. In all, Shots like this are some of my favorites and this one I wanted to show to you. Hope you like it.

Peace and Love.
