Vinatge FASHION PHOTO SHOOT (Professional Portraits)
Today I share with you results from a Vintage Fashion shoot I organised and photographed. If you read my previous photography related blog post, by now you are aware of my process of organising a shoot.
As per usual I come up with an idea, concept and then a moodboard. I gather a team of a model and a makeup artist, occasionally a designer or stylist- but in all honesty, I've been finding it hard to find any stylists in my area, so the styling, outfit and accessories- normally I have to take care of nowadays. In this shoot I chose a simple black and white colour scheme of the outfit and accessories as against the grey background. I knew the image will have monochrome hues to which the red makeup will create a contrast and naturally draw viewers attention to eyes and lips of the model for more of a sensual feel.
The makeup and hair styling is simple, falling into the vintage theme. And I've used 2 monolights with softboxes for a softer lighting. I find that by the creation of sharp, contrasting details and a softer light, I managed to get the striking yet sensual atmosphere I was aiming for. Portraying a beautiful woman, full of confidence, power and a great style while also displaying her softer, more sensual side.
I hope you guys enjoy these shots as much as I do. Planning and executing photoshoots is hard work that normally takes weeks to execute, so really do hope you guys like the results, let me know in the comments!
