A makeup Shoot for Jennifer Bailey

My youngest daughter Jennifer began studying makeup and hairstyling at college a few months ago. She asked me if I would mind taking some photos of various makeup ideas, and hairstyles she had in mind. We had limited time as we had to take the photos during her son Jackson’s nap, and we also had limited space in which to take the photos.

I set up a table, for Jen to sit at and rest her arms on, this also allowed me to place a white board under her face to fill in any shadows. There was filtered light coming through the cloud cover on the left side of her face, and I used a silver reflector to provide fill on her right. The balcony is cream in colour, so the overall lighting was soft in quality. The backdrops were king sized sheets of various colour from Kmart.

I always shoot in RAW. After basic editing and retouching in Adobe Photoshop, I sometimes play a Florabella action or two over my image, and pull the opacity back quite a bit in most cases.
