I’ve mentioned a few times here that I am primarily an aspiring Fashion and Beauty Photographer. Before I was into beauty and fashion, photography was my great love. Now recently I have kind of lost my mojo so I want to post more of my work here in an attempt to get some feedback, give myself some exposure and to just share my images with you all.
This was a shoot I did a couple of weeks ago with the amazing Kat Wenham for her friends magazine project (& for a portfolio update for us). Kat used an airbrush to achieve an almost tattooed lace look on the skin. Initial lighting from me was 2 background lights with soft boxes, a fill light on the right hand side with a soft box and a direct main light with a beauty dish. I also used black reflectors in front of the background lights to stop camera flare. The camera I used was a Canon 5D Mark 2 (borrowed from university, I’m primarily a Nikon girl).
After our initial cliché beauty shots I wacked out blue and pink gels to add some colour. I’ve never really experimented with them before so as a first go I'm pretty impressed with the results. Since then I have done another shoot with even more colour, so if you would like to see that please comment and let me know. I love photographing people and I know I have a long way to go, but i am starting to build up a nice little portfolio. The plan for when I finish university is to try and get an assistant position in a magazines photo department or with a photographer. It might not happen, but we shall see!

What do you think of me doing more photography related posts? Would you like to see more in the future? I’d love to hear your feedback. If anyone is wondering, the post title is a song by the Horrorpops!
